This one is still just a top, but it is definitely scrappy. The background was scraps too.

Paws - what a precious and lovely quilt! Perfect for a sweet baby girl. Is the baby's name Mya Rose? Isn't that a pretty name?

Wow - that is super Marynel - I love the blend of colors. I've never done circles - was it hard?

Not as hard as I expected. I found a couple of tricks.
1. Clip the curve on the pie only, but mark the center point of both pieces. Pin there.
2. Have the "pie" piece on the bottom and the "a la mode" piece on top.
3. Lift the outer edge of the "a la mode" and sorta straighten the "Pie" piece as you sew. This is the hardest part and takes a coupe of tries, so try with scrps first.
4. press towards the pie.

The first curved piecing like this that I did was my wqves quilts. For those, the circle radius was 9", so they went together really easily.

This is far from perfect, but it is nearly done (binding left on the top) and is VERY warm with thermore binding. Everything was scrap except for the wonderful cats mamy gave me and, of course, the batting).
