Eventually I decided on petals, finished the quilt, and submitted it to F&W, where it was accepted for the January 2019 issue of Quilty. I love Quilty, so I was thrilled. And now the January issue, including my quilt, is available at Barnes & Noble.
If you pick up the magazine but want to make the quilt with the center ring instead of the petals, e-mail me and I’ll tell you the measurements. Alternatively, just trace a dessert plate from your collection, which is what I did 😀
