    I am looking for the quilt pattern above. Each circle is put together (backing, batting and top color) and stitched and flipped so all of the raw edges are inside. Then they are attached to one another and part of the edge is flipped back and stitched down; the circle blocks are complete before stitching to the next circle.
    If anyone knows the creator of this design, I'd appreciate your help on locating the pattern.

    I have an idea what you are talking about. The back side is all squares and the front resembles an attic window. I have instructions for a tabletop using this technique but I don't know the designer, or the original pattern.

    If so, it comes from Brandys. Here is the link:

    You also might do a search for "faux cathedral windows" on Google, because that sounds like the same technique.

    I am in the process ( and have been for about a year) of finishing one. I saw it at a quilt show and it's pretty easy and would be quick if I didn't start (and finish some!)so many others inbetween. I "cheated" and did mine flannel on one side and fleece on the other so I wouldn't need the batting. I do have a book, however, that gives instructions for one-just have to figure out which book! I'll get back to you as soon as I find it.

    No, I've done the faux cathedral windows, and it isn't the same as what she is referring to. It isn't made that way. She is referring to the Circle Magic Tool that I gave the two links to.

    The book I have is Leisure Arts Great American Quilts Book six. The quilt in the book is by Charlene Bement and is named "Nine in the Window". I just used a plate (it gave me the size I wanted)and drew my circles. I then sewed them right sides together all the way around. I cut alittle slit to turn them and then made sure the slit was under the "arch" of the window to be sewed in and prevent a disaster. Here is another link.

    I have the templates I think. A woman from New Mexico. It has a funny name like not traditional. She was at Paducah last year at the mall.

    I looked it up. It is Less than traditional. Use the search button on this board and type in Less than traditional and there is a link to the website.
