My daughter requested this pattern and I decided I wanted more circles, smaller (see the one-color image with LOTS more circles) to make an overall look rather than the big circles. Partly because her choice of fabrics were not mine; we had trouble coming to an agreement. As an aside, she is quite the artist and definitely has her own tastes... like me.
The dark blue is called Love Beads from a book "The Modern Quilt Workshop" published by Quarry.
The lime green "test" is what I tried and you'll see the puckering at the ends; at actual size (6 inches x 10).
How do I adjust for that?
What have I done wrong? (I pinned it at center, ends, quarters but think I need to ease it differently?)
Am I crazy to tackle this???
BTW, we found TONS of fabulous fabrics at an Amish quilt store in Sarasota, FL. I would love to go back there!
