There were eight (yes!) sections to the central part of the block and then the four quarter-circles were added. Mine was made pretty much according to the colours in the shop sample because I had only returned from Canberra the evening before and I knew I had a lot of the fabrics already. The block did take a while to construct and if I want to make a quilt I have to do 12 more like this one. If you want to see how I've progressed, I suggest you watch this space in no sooner than 12 months' time, LOL.
