Did I really need a new project to play with? No.
I was home by myself the other night and had the freezer paper left over from dinner. I've wanted to try paper piecing, so I drew a couple circles and dug through the scrap bag. What fun! These circles are the dinner plate and small bowl from my everyday dishes. I traced around them onto a 16 inch square. The next day, I stopped at the fabric store on my way home from work and got two half yards of gray. They're a little wonky, my seam allowance around the arcs was probably a scunch too big. Generous 1/4 instead of actual 1/4, like the gray.
Now, I will have to decide if I want to sew more and turn it into a quilt. Eight more blocks would make a nice size throw or baby blanket. Four of them could be reverse pieced. I found the center circle I pieced, didn't go with the arcs at all. They just blended together. That's when I chose a solid for the background.
This was really inspired by the Single Girl Quilt. I like the look, but think I'd rather piece the arcs this way.
