I made this quilt for two of my friends (the ones I made the Rainbow "Fractal" bargello wedding quilt http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387535.0 for last year) who are expecting their first baby later this month. They're both very into nature and sort of spiritual about seasonal change, so I thought this was a good theme for them.



Close-ups of the four seasons are below. There are 18 circles and 24 ovals per season. After tracing them, cutting them out, and sewing them on, I was seriously cursing myself for choosing this quilt!  Tongue Although it was a great way to get rid of some small scraps I had around. And, most importantly, my friends loved it.
