Thanks for all the lovely feedback on my earlier tile design thread. Yesterday the tile was grouted, and I thought I'd share pictures (it still needs to be caulked at the counter edge, so it looks rough there). I'm quite pleased. For those who missed the earlier thread, the tile is from Fireclay tile of San Jose. Hopefully in two more weeks we'll be cooking in the kitchen (although there will certainly still be stuff left to do in the remodel).
And for fun, here is my photoshop mockup of the design I did before ordering the tile (partly to see what the design would look like, partly to see how much of each tile I needed to order):
