    Can someone point me to this pattern for purchase?

    I have only worked from a purchased pattern once before, but this one I would definitely want to start with a pattern or at least a block pattern, I could figure out the rest. Name:  Shimmer.jpg

    I don't know what that is, but, it is a gorgeous picture.

    Don't know what it's called, but here's the basic breakdown.
    This is the kind of pattern where you have to decide and lay out all your colors and fabrics first before you can start piecing (or even cutting).
    The units are just squares and HST blocks.

    It alternates between the floral prints (which are whole squares) and the solids (which are created when the four blocks are joined).

    And the sides and tops of each block are made up of eight HST blocks, constructed from the floral in the center and the specific solid on that side/corner of the block.

    Great explanation mts. I think what is importnt for it to work properly is the fabric choice. Looks very much like the modern line of fabrics.

    I think the way the fabric blends is more important - so the solids chosen should be from the florals, with not a lot of contast.
    You don't want a lot of 'background' - busy is better.

    But you need to watch the scale as well.
    Depending on the patch size you use, it's possible that a huge Kaffe fabric won't work at all - despite the busy pattern - because when you cut it up for the HST, you'd end up with a solid patch - you want the patterned fabric to carry out into those HST's as much as possible.

    Of course, the converse is true as well - you don't want a very small calico type print either - again, even though it might have multiple colors.

    I think you would pick the florals first - and they should have some commonality in style, tone and color.
    Then pick the solids. And I say solids but I really mean blenders.
    This is not the quilt for harsh Kona solids. You want some texture or tone-on-tone pattern in the complimentary fabrics.

    I think that the pattern is based off of Ocean Waves. Rather than being made with scraps, the fabric is placed so that adjoining fabrics have a fractured look.

    The Westminster prints are perfect for this. Maybe the pattern is in one of Kaffe Fassett's books.

    Thank you MTS, that was exactly what I was looking for, and I was thinking that breakdown as well. I love how you lined it out.

    I found the picture on Pinterest, and after a lot of clicking, (don't you hate when people don't link properly on pinterest?) I found this link http://www.jennybowker.com/quilts/si...llery/11245124

    She calls it Shimmer, if you go to her site, check out Lost in Singapore which is also stunning. I aspire to be that kind of quilt artist.

    It's not Ocean Waves, though similar.

    It could also be pieced like this (but the layout still needs to be decided first) -

    I can't decide which version of the two piecing diagrams would be less of a hassle to piece.

    I think at some point all those seams are going to have to be aligned anyway, whether it's done within a block, or block-to-block.
    So it probably doesn't make a difference.

    I would never have pegged that for a Jenny Bowker quilt.
    It's so ...traditional.
    Go figure.

    I made the quilt Sweet Dreams by Carolyn Designs and it is very similar. It was paper pieced and fun to do Took quite a bit on concentration!

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I hadn't seen any of her quilts before but boy do I love that Shimmer. Looks like she is out of Australia so probably not much chance of a class and I didn't see any books/patterns by her but will keep an eye open as I really love her quilts.

    I'm inclined to think the blocks are on point and are all made the same.. . if you tilt your head you will see what I mean.What a beauty and you have peaked my interest.

    This block is a series of 4patches (4 4patches per block - each 4patch consists of two colored squares and two HST 4patches. I tried posting a jpeg, but for some reason I can't seem to get it to work. If you PM me with your email, I'll send you a jpeg.
