I don't always follow a pattern when making my quilts. Usually I start with a few coordinating fabrics, in this case a beautiful rose print on a black background, a rose and a gold that coordinate with the rose print.

First I make a few basic quilting units - some four patches and some half square triangles. Then I play with them on my design wall.
|Long and Skinny?|
First I tried out a layout for a long skinny runner, then I tried a square layout. Although I liked them both, the square layout won and I finished the piecing.
