    Your tile is outstanding. If you had to pay someone for that it would be very expensive. Great Job!

    My husband is in the middle of redoing our Master bath including putting tile in the new shower and around the jacuzzi tub. I wouldn't even begin to suggest your complicated layout, but it looks marvelous. He does the construction and I quilt.................we have an even trade LOL

I start trying to describe how I'm going to put the design blocks on point with this or that border and my DH shakes his head "so much more complicated than it had to be"... But seriously, it's so similar to quilting that this is my favorite part of the remodel. Cutting tile is a lot tougher than cutting fabric but luckily, the grout allows for those "uneven seams". My hands are now so rough from all the tile & cement work that I dare not touch certain fabrics for fear of snagging them & there's no way to put on nylons... Enough fun - back to work!
    I too like to tile. For my birthday I got a tile cutter. I have tiled my bathroom, kitchen etc floors plus back splashes. It's just like sewing. I even made a pattern to go around things. But it is hard on the hands, but a lot if fun.

    Great job! Great eye! Saving money but not having to hire someone and getting your " quilt fix" priceless! :-)
