Running in circles
For April in the Brit Bee the lovely Jo asked us to make any kind of block we fancied, as long as it involved circles. I pondered this for a couple of weeks, and thought about applique, drunkards paths and dresdens, but then I remembered the beautiful port-holes that Lu Summers makes, and had a bit of a puzzle about how to make them.
Here's what I can up with
I don't know if there's a better way to make them (there probably is!) but I'm pretty happy with how these came out and I hope Jo is too :)
Expect to see more of this type of thing from me. I've realised that you could make any shape and can have pieced fabric in the centre, like the blue circle at the bottom.
Too. Many. Possibilities!
The other Brit Bees have made some fantastic circley blocks, you should have a wee look
Happy Tuesday :)
