    Was getting dizzy looking back and forth between version 1,2,3 - but after all that prefer the first one that you posted. To me it has a lot of movement, and I would call it "Heart's Desire" as the center blocks along the outside edges look like elegant hearts. Then if you decide to use batiks - you can really make this sing even louder! Then with this beautiful a design, you might want to think of some special shape to the outside border - not scallops, but something with movement that compliments the wonderful shapes of the design. Just a few thoughts. Keep us posted - I'm going to keep an eye on this one for sure.

    It looks awesome, but would scare me to death to try it, but then again, I'm just now working on my 2nd quilt...

    I think it looks great in design and I'm sure it will look even better once it's put into fabrics.

    It Magnificant! I wouldn't change a thing & it's very much your own design, I've never seen another like it. :thumbup:

What would it look like make the left and right side the same as the top and the bottom? Regardless, your design is defininely a winner! :thumbup:
    Thank you so much everyone for all your input - you have been so helpful (even you Gai! :mrgreen: ) And thanks for pointing out that I had the fabrics wrong - I hadn't noticed. Anyway, taking on board all that has been said and a few more hours work this morning, here is, by my reckoning, Version 13... anyone superstitious? :lol:

    I really wasn't happy with the four corners of the centre four blocks of version one, plus I didn't like the medallion effect created by the centre of regular log cabins, so I've made that more roundy by making the corners of that section black and when I make this, with my own applique design, I will start the flowers' stems to radiate out from the greyish curving part.

    I liked the suggestion for shaped borders and may try something with the corner sections, don't know yet...

    I'm sorry but I can't do a tute for this - it would take forever and I can't spare the time, However when I've made the quilt myself, maybe I can come up with a version of it as a pattern to purchase if there was any interest. This would assume a knowledge of not only regular piecing but also Paper Piecing and Applique though... :-D

    Version 13

    Just noticed that we're on page 13 - now I'm REALLY superstitious! Perhaps I should call it 'The Thirteenth' LOL

    It is still gorgeous!! I still like the 1st one, but you must do what feels good to you! Hurry out to the fabric shop, and relieve some of that designing stress. You can always fine tune along the way if you need to. You have a stunning design. Keep us posted. :thumbup:

    Gorgeous but looks really complicated!! Way beyond my expertise. Will love to watch as you progress. Good luck. Wish I could do something like this.

    That is one amazing quilt! Stunning.
