Block 11 - and a little applique

Ahhhh - Saturday, don't know about you all but I am living for the weekends at the moment. Strange thing about them is they seam to take forever to come, but arrive in a blink then ~ whoosh they are gone!

Anyway ~ it is an early start today, sitting here with the little man on my lap, have done and hung the first load of washing on the line and completed a row on the 3rd block for Squares... you may be lucky and get the third instalment tomorrow as I have done 6 rows of the 10.

I have for your viewing pleasure today ~ Block 11 of the Circle game.

I had to applique the centre circle into this because as much as I measured, checked - then measured etc, it didn't work to plan A. It was interesting as I thought this would be a walk in the park... easy... then that is the fun of this project to challenge my sewing skills.

I think the simple answer was that I was just that tiny little out when sewing, which stretched the angles and made the centre a little too large.

I love these "round" blocks. I'm really interested to see how you put them together -- it looks like it's going to be a challenge!

I had to pop in to say that I'm very impressed with your CG blocks. I'm doing the same bom and it's a challenge for me. I do admit to resorting to applique for the same one as well.
