I am looking for a pattern that makes an overall curve look to the quilt, but it's made with straight seams.
Anyone have the name of a pattern they will share
Thanks

I think something like kaleidoscope is what i'm looking for.
I want to really show off one fabric.

The responses so far are good choices for straight line curves. All great patterns. Good luck in your search!

There's also log cabin that makes the illusion of curves. Off sides. One side is fat logs and the other skinner. done it several times..really fun.
