Pattern Description:

This quilt was inspired by the street map of Bath, the famous English spa town which enjoyed its heyday in the Regency era. The majestic Royal Crescent with its inimitable view was the birthplace of the concept behind this elegant wall hanging.
For pictures with details of the Circles & Crescents quilt and for more background information about the inspiration for this quilt, please go to the content area of Quilt around the World (see link below).
This is a medium sized wall hanging (ca. 28 x 57 or ca. 71 x 145 cm) made up entirely of Drunkards Path units (a square divided by a curved line making one convex and one concave shape) in two matching sizes. These units are arranged to form full circles (pattern also known as Snowball or Robbing Peter to Pay Paul), half circles and three-quarters of a circle. The design needs 16 different fabrics belonging to the same colour group.
