Circle of Squares Flimsy

I should have started another row of Nearly Insane this week but I just wasn't in the right frame of mind. I have to really concentrate on those blocks. I guess I just wasn't ready to concentrate because I just didn't have the necessary enthusiasm needed.


I decided to sew the Circle of Square blocks together into a flimsy. The blocks finish at 12". I decided on a checkerboard border before the outside border. She measure 47" across the center. 

There are different yellows in the blocks but they all look the same in the picture. Oh well.

She'll get quilted sometime. I think she looks bright and cheery. You can find the pattern on toefeather's blog. The pattern is just for the blocks. I don't know how she finished her quilt.

Someone had commented that Circle of Squares would make nice scrappy blocks. Here is a link to the scrappy Circle of Squares quilt Lisa made

I had made these blocks as part of the Scrappy Rainbow Challenge, just to see how they pieced and looked. This was a fun block to make and very simple too. I can see myself making more of these, but not this year.


While I was outside taking pictures, I snapped a photo of the volunteer violas in a flowerbed. I always think they look so happy.


I don't plant them, they just reseed themselves every year.

  1. When I enlarge your picture, I can see all the different yellow fabrics. I don't purchase a lot of yellow. My stash could use a boost there. Good finish!

  15. What I love about your circle/squares quilt is the border. At first glance it led me to believe it was a checkered design - and then the surprise as I realize it's circles. Very clever. I did enlarge it, and yes all those various yellow fabrics are delightful!
