A snow day, too much caffeine after 3:00 pm and Birthday excitement leads to
Birthday Eve Sewing!
I've seen variations of this block several places, some with reverse applique, but here's my try: Favorite brights from my stash (including Autism puzzle pieces and New York subway) traced circles and topstitched 1/4 inch from the edge. I cut away behind each circle to keep it from being too bulky.
Cut each square into fourths and played with them. . .

All together! Mismatched circles!
This block was very fun to make. I'd like to make it again in solid brights or Halloween colors.

Thank you for commenting on my Diary quilt along! And Happy Birthday to YOU! I like what you are doing with the bulls-eye blocks. I'd like to try that sometime soon. I would love the loose edges for a tattered quilt appearance.
