I knew that looked familiar so I had to google research until I found it!  It is called "Cathedral Windows" and here is one example:

And it looks like there is a great tutorial here:

Good luck with it!

Ha ha!  Tell me about it!  I love the look of it and might someday try it myself, with a similar timeline!

I'm about to start a cathedral windows project too! I know I'll never finish a whole quilt though, so I'm going to just make a pillow. That's about all I think I can handle!

Ooh, you could try x.mas/solstice/channukah/kwanzaa/yule ornaments! I took a quilting class once and we did some of those at the end, just sew two together, and use little buttons/sequins at the four corners of the circle, I think....

I'm using the Cathedral Window to make a denim quilt, just turn the circles inside out, throw a square in the middle, and stitch around the edges.  It's looking really neat. I'm kinda loosely stitching around the edges so it will fray a bit.

I'm also doing a cathedral project with a black background and red squares.  I'll also post it when I'm done in a few years Cheesy
