    This has to be the most challenging for me to do..it is truly pieced.

    The Rising Sun pattern was from a set of patterns done in 1961 for American Needle work.

    Nice work! I recently did some round quilts, but I used a big wedge ruler and had pretty much straight lines! I wouldn't tackle the curves you did!! Good for you!

    Very pretty, Dave. What is the pattern? Did you have a special ruler to cut the curved pieces. I just did a piece called Curved Tulips which used a special ruler and was actually really easy to do.

    The pattern is called Rising Sun and I just made my own templates.
