In Roman architecture, the large circular window in the ceiling that allowed light and air into the house was called an "oculus", Latin for "eye". The central medallion in this quilt reminds me of that, allowing color and pattern to take the center stage: this beginner's quilt is perfect for that layer cake you're not quite sure what to do with, but love and want to show off for its colors and patterns. The nice open background also allows for practicing quilting in larger spaces.

Mandy Leins was hooked on quilting after making her first Rail Fence quilt 11 years ago using her grandmother's 1943 in-cabinet Singer. Since that first quilt, Mandy's passion for quilting and teaching has turned into a business. A professional longarm quilter and pattern designer, Mandy's first two patterns were published in <i>Modern Quilts Unlimited</i> and one, "All Together Now," was juried at the Machine Quilters Exposition. Formerly, Mandy worked as a classical archaeologist and the ancient world continues to influence and inspire her quilt designs.
