Lady Harvatine block quilt–WIP

LHblockI’ve been thinking about making this quilt for some time and after lots of cutting out pieces it was so fun to start laying out the design. I wasn’t sure how I to arrange the pieces so I just went for random placement and (ta-da!) I think it looks great! I really love this pattern by Liz Harvatine aka Lady Harvatine. Liz is a member of the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild and she designed this block for their block of the month series.

The quilt is for my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I wanted to make a variation on a double wedding ring quilt with gold tones and this pattern makes it modern. I especially like how some of the circles are broken (see that gap on the left?); it gives the design a really nice fluid feel.

I’m starting the piecing tonight. I hope I do OK with all those curves. If you know of any tutorials for piecing curves I’d love to hear about them!
