    Help With Finding Pattern

    Hi Everyone,
    This is one of the quilts I saw at a quilt show in Roseville, MI a few weeks ago and I am wondering if anyone can tell me what the pattern is? There were several versions of this pattern at the show and I just fell in love with it. I forgot to take a pic of the pattern name and publisher.
    Thanks in advance for any help.
    Peggy

    It is pretty, but I have no idea of the name of the pattern. It looks like a 'drunkards path' block, though, if that helps.

    It looks like an adaptation of a drunkard's path. It has quarter circles on more than one corner of the block, though, and they're different sizes. It looks like they were appliqued or sewn together using bias tape.

    I made a drunkard's path quilt with bias strips that is very similar. It's a much easier process because you don't have to piece curves. To make a block, you cut a square of background fabric, a circle, and some bias strips. Put the circle on top of the square, fold the bias strips the long way so the raw edges are on one side, align the strip with the raw edge of the circle, then sew 1/4" in. After you've gone all the way around, press the bias strip out, over the edge of the circle, and topstitch around the outer edge. Cut the block in fourths and trim the background out from under the circle. Now you have 4 blocks - go play with settings!

    How wide do you cut the bias strip?

    On the quilt I made, I cut the strips 1.25" wide and at least 22" long. My background squares were cut at 9", and the circles I cut at 6.5". With these measurements, I got four 4" finished blocks from one square.
