    Hi there, I had saved this pic, I think maybe from this board, because I really liked this quilt. I had the pattern for it in one of my magazines but since my big de-cluttering I can no longer find it (of course!). Does anyone know the name of the pattern? It's made like a sandwich of backing, batting and top and it's sewn and folded over so it's sort of a quilt as you go (if any of that makes sense??). Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    Sorry, can't help, but I'll be watching this post. Looks like a hexagon with circles added. I can picture in my mind how it could be done... but I would like to get a 'real' pattern. Lovely quilt.

    I think it was like a hexagon with "petals" added (the white part in the pic) that you folded over. The middle was a hexagon without "petals" and the batting was a hexagon too. I'd like to know exactly how to do it though, and not be guessing LOL.

    This one ends up being a square, but it could be modified to a hexagon.

    Lovely quilt. Never seen it before. It looks like it is out of my league.

    It looks like each big circle is a complete sandwich (looks sort of like a round potholder). Then you mark the hexagon in the center and align along the hex edges. When you sew two lines together it leaves the two petals sticking up and when all the straight lines are sewn together, you sew down the petals. I know HOW to do it but I don't know where the pattern might be.

    that looks like the circles quilt, robbing peter to pay paul or orange peel but this person figured a hexagon inside the circles rather than a square and folded the edges over. very interesting indeed.

    looks like the one Kay Woods does that ends up as a square. it looks much better as hexes. Kay's is done by dividing the circle in 4 arcs. dividing to 6 arcs is easy enough with a compass.
