That is just so pretty....and really fun how the secondary patterns come and go as you look at it....kinda makes it "sparkle".

Love this quilt. I too was trying to figure out why the circles pop. And it seemed to me some didn't quite pop as a circle and some did more than others. Here's my theory(not sure it is correct but it is how I think it is working)-the ones that pop as a circle seem to have the 4 inner triangles the same color and the cross patches are either medium or light values. The ones with darker patches across the center of the block don't seem to make as strong a circle secondary.
