Medallion Quilt Last Blocks

I am posting the last two blocks that I used in the Medallion Quilt layout. When posting the blocks to my blog I may have made a small error and posted an additional block that I didn't use in the original quilt. The extra block was the Churn Dash Block. Sorry Tish I know you have been keeping up in between your other BOM's and QAL's.

First up is the Tile Block. A simple block made with squares and rectangles.
