    that is a very nice quilt. I don't have the nerve to try all those curves. You've done a great job ! Keep sewing.....Sara

    My honest opinion.....I love it. If you decide you just can't stand it, I'll take it with pleasure.

    I think it is beautiful! I love all of the curves. Raw edge applique is so fun!

    I love it!!! I see you did raw edge. That will fray up really nice after it is washed. I did one like this(only one fabric in the quarter circle) and it was great.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    I had to read every comment! Like a couple of others I too am fairly new at this hobby and am finding I too want to do a lot of really neat quilts that I see and unfortunately this is another one!!! NOT!!! Love it! I am sitting up with my dear aunt who is getting ready to meet her dear Saviour and this one will be made in honor of her! I will have to call it . . . Now all my family will get it as her nickname is Dot and she always signed everything Aunt . Thank you so much for this inspiration and I wish you the very best on your hospital visit. Twinkie, I will include you in my prayers for a Brief but successful visit!

    WooHoo, I now have all my circles cut and matched up, (not completely sewn together) and all the large squares to put the circles on cut. I have 2/3rds of the circles sewn onto the squares and 1/2 of the queen size quilt top put together. It now measures 60" x 68" and I probably have about 40 +/- hours put into the top. I think it is going to turn out real nice.

    Some of the circles don't look even and the colors aren't as bright as in person, but it is overcast and windy outside. Thanks for looking.

    I haven't been able to find the pattern. If Julie in NM knows the name of it, perhaps she could share it with us. I had planned on doing a tute on it when I am done but if it has a name, I don't want to do that. And, JULIE, mine will rag when finished. It is a raw edge. My squares are 4" each. It will have 550 (approx) squares in a Queen size quilt.

    When I first say it several years ago I though it was relatively easy. However you are correct. It is detailed. But I love how it is turning out.

    Nice. Right away I start trying to figure out how you did it. Start with large wh-on-wh block, then large circle, stitch around, next smaller circle, stitch around. Do you cut off the layers from underneath? Cut in quarters, piece together. Is that right? Simple enough, but very effective and much easier than a Drunkard's Path.

    Your analysis is correct except it is a beige on beige tone on tone block. Otherwise it is correct. However, I wouldn't call it simple as you have to be careful that the colors are not the same in one area. My quilt will be 575 squares and I am now at about 380. I can only work on two rows and then I have to put it up because I go crazy looking at it. LOL
