    I couldn't make a pattern but. that would make an absolutely beautiful quilt block. a big quilt of this blocks would really make a gorgeous quilt. Good luck figuring it out.

    Definitely. There are a couple of quilt book authors who have done tile: Christine Porter and the author of the Bella Bella books.

    I saw this same design and the first thought I had was that it would make a great quilt design.

    The tiles in the borders around the star look square or rectangle to me, with the extra space to make the increasingly larger circles being provided by more grout space at the outer edges and less at the inner edges. So if using fabric instead of grout, either your squares/rectangles would have to distort at the outer edges, or your "background" pieces would have to adjust, depending on what method you are using (stained glass vs. just pieced shapes). Interesting project! Let us know if you draft it out, 'cause I've seen some sunflower centers and camelias I'd like to reproduce!

    Wow! Thanks for sharing. I have EQ7 and I keep trying, but I can do it on paper faster than that. In about 10 minutes I printed out a pattern. I might have to go back and twek it, put WOW

    No clue but it is a lovely piece of tile - I really like the use of the colors to bring out the design. If you make something like that please keep us posted!

    Maybe you could use a New York Beauty pattern/template to help build the center circles? I*ve seen several free ones when Googling.

    Wow! Not one I'll ever try to make. Don't have the skill or patience.
