here's another silly question: how do you get the needle over to start the next oval? or are they connected together in a way I just can't see (so it's continuous, no needle lifting)?

No needle-lifting, you just finish a circle, veer out and that starts the new circle ... does that make sense?

Two things...

One, I am always afraid to try to use more than one block pattern in my quilts because I'm afraid it will look...like it doesn't go together, or just not right...after seeing this quilt though, I am determined to make my next quilt with different block patterns.  I love how just using the same colors unifies the whole thing and makes different blocks stand out.

Two, until this post I had never heard of the pebble quilting pattern, and I am so excited to use it!  I love the textury look of stippling but it's not very easy to do, so I am thrilled to have a new technique to try!  Thanks for the awesome post and teaching me something new!

Thanks!  I think the trick is that people used varying amts of each of the fabric I sent them so that some fabrics were more dominate one color than the other.  And the quilting united them a lot (they didn't fit as well before that).
