    I started working on this early in the year and then put it away to think about :wink: Some of the center is done and I really like it but I was having trouble with the overall quilt design.

    I've been playing in EQ for days with this, whenever I'm sitting in front of the TV, and keep going round-and-round (no pun intended). I think I may have come up with something that I like.

    It may look really hard but I don't think it will be. It's all paper piecing, the arcs are just New York Beauty blocks that I removed all but the outer ring.

    Since I (pretty much) decided on the design I just ordered more of the background fabric. I should have enough of the others. At least EQ7 thinks so and I've found that it usually over estimates the fabric requirements.

    WOW!!!!
    Looks like a good plan to me,hope to see it when you are finished.
    It must be a blast to be able to plan your quilt on the EQ.I'm afraid I would spend so much time doing that and never making it to the sewing machine.

    That is really a lovely quilt. The fabrics are different but all compliment each other and the whole thing is really lovely.

    I think you've done a wonderful job so far. I hope you will keep us up to date on your progress. You might just inspire someone to try paper piecing again - like me.
