    Used the drunkard path, but with childrens fabrics, and random placements, have made dozens of these quick and easy quilts for charity.

    The bug fabric is so cute! I'm sure any child would be happy to receive one of these!

    And I have stayed away from curved piecing all this time. I've never heard anybody refer to it at a quick or easy. Nice work.

    If you make a yoyo or an appliqued circle and sew it to a background square then cut it in 4 it can be really easy!!

    No curved sewing other than sewing on the circle to the background.

    I bought a curved template and just taught myself. This block is wonderfully easy if you mark the center of each piece. Take a TINY fleabite with your pin on this mark with right sides together. place the Outie shape on the bottom and the innie shape on the top. Pull the top fabric over to the edge of the bottom fabric and start stitching. pull gently as you go around the curve and remove the pin keep sewing....the curves are cut on the bias and it almost curves itself. Good luck.
