Crazy

So... I had a c.r.a.z.y idea for a block. It's a dual purpose block - the first purpose - the Skill Builders Sampler QAL has been doing curves all this month, and I am using this as my challenge block. I had to set in two whole circles. And that was after a tremendously awful bout of piecing. With Y seams...

This was my "pattern"


So, here it is - bragging rights to anyone who can tell me what the inspiration was... :)


It's not anywhere near perfect. But, hey - it's not too bad, either! :)

Setting in circles isn't as hard as I though it would be, but it does involve some work... such as, making a foam board "map"...


The second purpose? You'll find out soon... ;)

The first thing that leaps to my mind is "trivial pursuit board" How's that for inspiration?

Ooh! I like. Sort of makes me think of the single girl quilt with the circles but I like the extra lines in the center and the fact that it's a true circle. It kind of makes me think of a wagon wheel but not so country. love the gray background.
