Today I decided I should make 4 extra circle blocks for a row of circles across the back of the quilt. When I got them all cut, I realized that if I just cut enough for 2 more blocks, I could use them all on the front and make it a queen size by adding borders! In any case, I now have 120 of each segment cut..... and I tried sewing four together to make a complete circle.
And it was actually pretty simple to sew! The directions with the template recommend pinning with the pie-shape piece on top, and flipping to sew. I found mine turned out better (and were simpler) when I kept the pie-shaped piece on top for both.
Now I only wish I could sew all the blocks together, but I really need to make dinner. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
And Clover, the kids are VERY impressed with the new books.
Tyler also got them a whole set of children's encyclopedias at the second-hand store, they were very impressed. After lots of play outside, they like to sit and read a bit.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day; it's actually raining here currently..... a very welcome sight and sound!
