I was trying to work out a pattern for a 10-segment circular quilting block, but I couldn’t find any templates for what I wanted. So, I made one.

Because I know that everyone really wants to make a 10-segment circular pattern with triangles, but you’re all weeping in despair because you can’t find a decent free template.

So, I managed to catch Spousal Unit’s cold/virus/crud from 2 weeks ago (guessing the incubation period is around 14 days), and I’ve been too sick to do much of anything other than drink lemonade/orange juice, eat chicken noodle soup, blow my nose and sleep. But that doesn’t stop me from being creative.
