That's the name of this patchwork quilt pattern. I have always wanted one, I've seen gorgeous take your breath away vintage ones...all way to expensive for my budget. So I set out to make my baby daughter one for her big girl bed. 3 years ago. It's really the most labor intensive project I've ever gotten myself entangled in. The process is english paper piecing, you take these 6 sided little paper templates, wrap the little piece of fabric around it, secure and whipstich together, one....by.....one. Actually it's a bit of a zenlike process, once you get into it. And if you're in the mood. I go through fazes where I'll work on it compulsively, and then I can't pick it up for months. Oh well, maybe it'll be a nice wedding quilt...I used the sweetest little 1930's repro fabrics.
