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:

It sure is beautiful! It would also make a great Round Robin Center!

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.

The colours are vague as well and might change once I get in an LQS but I'm thinking batiks... this would be for the contemporary section of the Festival of Quilts, which asked for a modern take on traditional quilting. Does this fit the bill? I thought to regular piece the LCs, PP the twisted, machine applique and FMQ to be decided... any comments gratefully received and when the design is finalised, I'd like to post progress so you can all nag, ermmm, I mean, ENCOURAGE me to finish it in time for August! :lol:

That is one amazing quilt! Stunning.

In other words 'get off EQ and get on with it!' :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hmmm... my eyes see the Cheshire Cat shape in the center lights now, sorry.
