    I'm looking for this pattern or at least the name of the pattern

    A couple of years ago before I started quilting, I took a picture of this quilt in a store somewhere. I need to make a baby quilt and would like to try this one if I could ever find it. Thanks for any help and I hope the picture posts.

    I don't know pattern name but it would be easy to make. Decide the size squares you want to use then cut circles withblittle smaller diameter. Put circles right sides together and sew around edges, cut in half then turn right side out. Place one half between squares before you piece them. Them make yo-yos for centers. Hope this helps.

    I Agree with ontheriver except I think you'd want the circles a bit bigger than the squares. First, you need to allow for the seam allowace and second, it appears that the edge of the half circle has been gathered a bit before it was sewn into the seam. I would guess that they are about an inch larger. Also looks like the circle is held about 1/8" from the edges of the square.

    Right, I see I didn't consider the gathering.

    The pattern is called Pinwheel Posies Again from Cotton Way. Cost is $8. One source is:
    http://www.hollyhillquilts.com/cgi-b...=rtreeview.htm
    The designer's site is down for maintenance, but she sells the pattern, too, if you can wait, and she'd get full price if you bought it directly from her.

    Looks pretty simple to make. Just cut some circles, then sew and turn inside out. Gather and stitch to one side of the square block. Make some yo-yo's and you're done! I'll have to save this pic. Really cute and simple for a little girl baby-----------------or boy in other colors.

    Learn something every day-------------your method of making the semi-circles would be a lot faster than what I envisioned.
