Block 125 of 368

I have been eyeing the scallop blocks for a while.  While I had my fabric circle cutter out I decided to do a faux scallop block.  Here is the result.

i took 1.5" circles in a variety of fabrics and layered them.  I went from one corner to the other, not thinking about how this would set the scallops on the diagonal.

Then I did a blanket stitch around the edges.  The color way was a happy accident, I would never combine these colors on my own.  But I do like how it turned out - as long as it stays this little!

Someday I will try to do a more traditional scallop block - but I like this technique too.
