Here's the EQ7 layout Scarlett did for Amanda's Celtic Circles pattern. Amanda made her bias the lightest color and did all of it out of the same fabric. That gives it more of a stained glass look, Scarlett thinks. That's an option to try, to use more than one fabric for the bias.
Here's an EQ7 layout for Amanda's Celtic Circles, done with creams, browns and light blue. As another option, a 1" finished border was added between the first and second border, adding 1/2 yd to the supply list.
Here's a variation in pinks and taupes with turquoise for the bias.
For a more dramatic coloration, blues/teals were used for the four patch blocks and a dark blue for the bias.
