closely at C5, I saw pieces which did not
appear on Brenda's draft. After actually constructing
the block with the extra pieces I heartily
encourage you to construct it the way it appears
in the book. But if you're a glutton for punishment,
here is what I did:
pieced the corner curves first, then center
in quarter "pies." The two outer
curves are pieced together and then pieced
(or appliqued) to the outside square.
the easiest way to do the inside pie pieces
if you are machine piecing this is to start
out with quarter square triangles, piece until
they become half-square triangles and THEN
cut the curve using a template.
be tempted to complete the center pie. It
is much easier to piece a quarter pie to the
outside than it side to do the whole circle
UNLESS you are appliqueing it.
center quarter pies were then pieced to the
edge quarters forming squares. Finish
the block as you would a 4-patch.
