Design: rings, circles & petals

This is one of my favorite designs. There is something I love about the circles shifting between being interlocking rings and four-petaled flowers. I'm love noticing different interpretations of this idea.

And the graphic design on Amy's banner. When I first saw it, I was heartbroken that it wasn't my blog banner! (Aside: If you don't know Amy, you really should. For many reasons above and beyond her lovely banner!)

How about you? What designs and patterns do you love?

Wow! Very impressive. I think if I tried quilting it would end up in a wadded up ball! You are so very talented though.

You're very sweet. Thank you. I love the circles as well (obviously). What a spectacular ring you've got there. Very quilt-like. Someone knows you very well.

I love the double wedding ring too - someday :) Your ring is very pretty.

The hexagon flower garden has always been my warm fuzzy quilt pattern. I am trying to make one but it may take me years to finish it... it's already been a few! But usually, my own style is simple, squares. clean. with a twist of vintage.. Oh! that's a hard one to answer briefly!
