One of the best things about corresponding with fellow (what is the female gender of this word in this case?) quilters is sharing ideas. The above quilt was made by Erika Rohde, who adapted a pattern I made for McCall's Quilting Magazine some months back, and the accompanying project, "ColorPools". You can scroll down to see the earlier post with this project in which I made a table runner using the pancake block. Erika enlarged that basic circular block to 15" (ultimately yielding a square 10" block) and built 121 of those babies to assemble this stunning, king-sized rendition with the pancake block. Erika used primarily batiks with a few solids. I am truly humbled, Erika, you have done an amazing job on this beautiful quilt. Thanks so much for sharing!
