Circle in a square EPP

I'm calling this block circle in a square but its proper name is unknown to me.  I'm sure I didn't invent it!

I drew the pattern on to graph paper and numbered the pieces before cutting them out - that helps me to keep everything more of less lined up.

The fabrics are genuine vintage - they come from an amazing Australian online store called A Piece of Cloth and I believe they are sources from the USA.    So diffferent to work with - the colours are so vibrant.  Many of the fabrics were glazed so a bit hard to get the needle through - otherwise I had no problems .

At the moment I am hand quilting this - rather inexpertly - but practice makes perfect!
