Quilts Radiating From The Center

What is the reason behind this post?
I'm not sure whether it was Judi Yakab's Mandalas she snow dyed that made me thing radiating?
Or could it be that I think some of my most exciting quilts radiate from a center point?

I do find this interesting as I consider myself an asymmetrical designer and yet these are some of my favorite most successful quilts in my opinion.



It is amazing I ever finished piecing this quilt. I can't tell you how many times I lost/misplaced pieces of it and there was no more of the fabric available.
Yes, I am studying this quilt to decide how I would like to quilt it to enhance the design. That may take a while!



This could have been the entire quilt if I had not found all the pieces. It includes a lot of hand applique so it travelled with me to many different places.


It was my attempt to create this quilt in hand dyed fabric.



This is one of my most successful quilts and is a prize winning quilt. Everyone who sees it, quilter or not, stops, looks, studies it and comments.


Here is another work in progress. I am also waiting for it to tell me how to finish it!

Puzzle it !! and then it might tell you to make it asymmetrical. What ever you do it will be interesting to view.

These are all absolutely amazing! I too love those "center radiating" quilts, although Trip Around the World is more my technical speed these days.

Looking forward to what you do with these!!
