Originally, I thought I would buy a bunch of tiles in various patterns and colors and make a "crazy quilt design. Or perhaps make a new pattern. Not sure.
Over several months, I bought some nice tiles made by an artist friend, a few at a time to defray expense. Unfortunately she is not making and more because her kiln broke and she can't afford to repair or replace it. But I decided to use those tiles I'd bought on the table, knowing I would have to fill in with something.
Today I laid the tiles on the table to get an idea how they look, what else I need. After seeing this, I know I need to find some small (3-4") tiles in a plain saltillo, perhaps 2-3 shades of terra cotta/earth tones, and fill in the gaps with the solids.
A couple shots of the tiles up close. I think they are really fun. the larger ones are 6" squares, and the small ones are 3-1/8" squares.
I hope I can find the sizes I need to fill this in.
On the way home I saw this and just had to take a picture ....
