I’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!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced!
