Neutral Tiles

Here's the finished Neutral Tiles quilt.  From a class at Mid-Appalachian Quilters in August 2011, I learned how to make "Italian Tiles" -- & renamed the finished product "Neutral Tiles."  I used all neutrals -- even though some are actually gold & peach & gray & brown -- all were neutrals to me & work well together.  The variety of "colors" add interest & movement to the quilt.
