I took a class from Linda Everhart for a technique called fusique... this quilt looks so difficult but was actually fairly easy to make - I can't explain her technique. She has a website that explains it all - if you go - look at her quilt called Quilt Police. That is another pattern of hers that I hope soon to make - www.quiltingamongfriends.com My DH loves this quilt and it hangs in his pool room. He wanted me to embroider #s on the circles but at the time I was finishing it up my embroidery machine was at the repair shop. Maybe someday i will do that for him.
