    thanks

    yes, you are right but it's easy to do. this has been discussed often here. circles made, sewn together and edges folded to make "petal" look. orange peel is one name, robbing peter to pay Paul, and others.
    i will find the recent discussion. well can't find the recent one. it was titled something different. here is one http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...s-t159374.html
    http://www.justitdist.com/brandys5.htm
    this shows on the bottom (scroll way down) the circle template with square inside that you would need or make one up like to do this method. youtube must have something too on this. circle majic is what the template is called from brandysquilts.com
    reversible circles with a slit cut to turn right side out, etc.
    got it!! this shows how to do it

    Email the blog owner and ask her. She does hang here periodically, too, so maybe she'll pop up. My first thought was Orange Peel, too...

    In my opinion it appears to be the #301 pattern shown in Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, page 58. It is called Tea Leaf, Compass, Lover's Know, Lafayette Orange Peal, Circle Upon Circle, Bay Leaf, or Pincushion, depending on the source. The earliest example of this pattern she found was ca. 1825-50 in the Shelburne Museum. (#164)

    I e-mail Appalachian quilts and they quilted the quilt --- the lady who pieced it has gone to Florida for awhile so Appalachian Quilts can't ask for awhile. Appalachian Quilts wondered if it was from a magazine---so I was just wondering if someone has seen it

    The half moons aren't folded. The entire thing is pieced. I know it came from a mag not purchased templates. The mag would have been last year or before, as this is the second one I have quilted....

    The way it was done was kinda like the center of a double wedding ring and the melons were added to the four sides to make the square.

    This looks like The old Robbing Peter to Pay Paul Block to me. I may be wrong. It is a beautiful quilt.
    peace

    EDIT: The more I look at it the more I think it is. They just used the white on all the curved pieces instead of 'borrowing' the color from the center of the block to go into the neighboring curve piece of the block.

    Please take a closer look.

    It is very easy to do but I have trouble explaining things I went to a sewing festival where it was a demo by Hancocks
    who was selling the circle cutting tool you sew 2 circles right sides together all around ---make s slit turn and press have a square that fits inside the circle trace around it sew another circle to it on drawn line then turn the orange peel part around and follow and quilt when finished makes a neat table runner I know clear as mud

    Thanks for posting info nativetexan. Have tried this method before but your directions are so much clearer than what I used. Definitely going to save this.

    it looks like Betty Cotton's The Cotton Theory. it's a quilt as you go. Others have the same type block. Cheryl Phillips does too.

    Okay with the information and link supplied by the blog owner about that quilt and its designer, I realized I've seen that quilt before on the Accuquilt site. It IS a "Rob Peter To Pay Paul" pattern. The quilt's designer apparently used one of Accuquilt's dies to make it.

    I don't know when you posted this question but I just looked at her blog (11:15 am, Tues. Dec 4 2012) and she has an update with the quilt name,
    "Emma's Hope Chest"
    maker, Kay Gentry of Noble Needle www.nobleneedle.com
    It is lovely, can see why you would like to make one.

    The name of the quilt is Emma's Hope Chest and it is by Kay Gentry.
    Hope this helps.

    I'm with cherrio...the quilt name is Emma's Hope Chest, but there is a really great tutorial on Missouri Star




















    The name was listed as Emma's Hope Chest, but agreeing with cherrio....Missouri Star's Jenny Doan does have a great tutorial on this quilt. Have the fabric and ruler (circle) just needing the courage. This quilt helps. Thanks for a great site listing.
