    I don't have a pattern. What I did is chose four different neutral background colors and cut them in 8 1/2 blocks. Then I used fat quarters of different colors and cut each one into 3 different size circles. On each neutral block I put a large circle and sewed 1/4 inch from raw edge. Now a different medium size circle and sew , and a small circle and sew. Then I cut each block into fourths. Aranged them on my design wall, starting with a mixed circle. Hope this makes sense.

    ok correct me if Im wrong but I think this is what you did

    But you cut THREE different size circles and LAYERED them sewing each one 1/4 of an inch from the edge. It really is beautiful! Did you use flannel or cotton? I didn't think cotton would rag up like that. Should each circle be 1/2 inch smaller than the next or 1inch?

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    These are Twinkie's directions: What I did was to choose 10" background (I used different prints of beige tone on tone material) squares. I then cut out 3 size circles using mostly small floral prints. 3", 5" and 7". I centered the 7" circle on the 10" block and sewed a 1/4" seam around it. Then I cut the back circle of the of the background block about 1/4" in from the 7" circle stitch out so there would not be too much thickness. Then I centered the 5" block and sewed it 1/4" in and the same with the 3" circle. Thus having a raw edge on each circle. I then cut the blocks in quarters (making 4 - 5" squares from the original 10" block). I will attempt to do a placement of the small blocks when I finish this quilt. Thanks for all the kind comments. I believe I made at least 25 -10" blocks. I have made several blocks after the original ones. Sorry I can't be more specific. Thanks again. These are the words of "Twinkie" herself. Much better directions than mine.

    What a beautiful quilt. Love the colors.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I found this:

    The blocks are arranged differently, but this is the pattern, I believe.
