    I agree with everyone. VERY beautiful and I would also love to know where to get that pattern (pattern name and designer).

    Any tips on sewing the curves? Was it easy, hard, and special tools, etc?

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Nice job, If you don't mind me asking, what is the name of the Pattern. Are there templates? So neat. Thanks for sharing.

    I have never seen this design before and I must say it is very impressive. Love the fabrics and the colors. It is a wonderful, wonderful quilt. Great job! I bet this got your creative juices flowing again...

    Thank you all for your kind words. I have to admit I didn't use a pattern. There probably is one, but I didn't bother.

    It started with a special ruler by Creative Grids (Curves for Squares) and a sample for a class at a local quilt shop. The ruler has gentle curves and can be used with 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 inch squares.

    Make a small pile of 4 or 5 squares, line up the edges with the lines on the ruler and slice from corner to corner. Move the top fabric on one side to the bottom and sew them back together. Since the curves are gentle, you don't need to pin. They won't be square at this point, but we'll fix that later. Once you have a pile of finished blocks, square them up. Put them up on your design wall and rearrange until you're happy with the results.

    The sample at the LQS had the blocks in a "trip around the world" arrangement, but I wanted something a little different. I've been into asymmetrical designs lately.

    Thanks again.
