I was fooled into thinking these were curved-pieced blocks at first.
She took the ordinary and made it into something extraordinary!

Beautiful Modern quilt! Each fabric has a different pattern.
I love the circles. So much of quilting is square - circles make a nice contrast.

When I started quilting, I concentrated on the piecing/applique and let the quilting go. I think that's my biggest regret as a quilter. Now 18+ years into it, I'm a good top-maker but not a quilter! Of course, when I started out you still heard: "If it's not hand quilted, it's not a quilt." a lot. Now, does anyone hand quilt anymore? (I know they do!) Back then stippling was the preferred (and only) type of machine quilting you could get. Now thanks to women like Sheryl and Angela pushing the boundaries of what machine quilting is, the quilting is a part of the overall quilt design - not so much just to hold the layers together.
