    This is different... we had a thread a while ago about the quilt where you sew two circles right sides together, cut a slit and turn them right sides out and then sew them together on the straight edges of the inscribed square. Then you press open those little semicircular pieces and stitch them down. I made a Nine patch (it's actually more a five-patch, technically speaking!) and lined it with muslin and interlined it with flannel. It's fun because when you are done, it's DONE.

    I could also fold in those outside edges for a straight edge to the quilt.

    Yes I remember that thread, was really taken with the idea of making a quilt that was finished as you go so to speak. What you have done is a really innovative use of the idea, Love it :-)

    I really like how graphic it is! Hard to realize it is circles because of the secondary design...wonderful! :D

    Really great look - and having it quilted as you go makes it even better.

    Thank you! I drafted a pattern for it, but I haven't typed it out yet. I will try to do that next week, and then I will post it for you. It honestly wasn't hard.

    I've seen another quilt with this pattern, but the triangle-square things didn't curve into the nice circles like they do in your quilt. Yours has a more elegant look. And I just LOVE those colors!

That's exactly what ive been in the middle of trying to make for my daughter, and am soooo up to my armpits in circles, ive decided to use the fabricsw for scraps, and start something else...rggg, but looking at yours, yours is so beautiful! I tried making mine with dif coloured circles, and didnt like how it was going, but seeing it with all the same colour circles is so nice! :)

    I've seen a vendor at quilt shows that sells stuff to make this quilt. The quilts are all beautiful, but the stuff she sells (templates and books) is EXPENSIVE. If you do a tutorial, I'd love to try it!
