This unfinished quilt top is an example of a "repeating unit" design by Hurbert Ver Mehren called Roses of Piccardy. Portions of six circles are pieced together around a center so that the circles appear to be overlapping. This flower section is then pieced into background sections that finish into a hexagon.
