Block No. 1

The Circle is not supposed to be there.  I just didn't care for my block when finished.  I wanted more color and movement.  I foundation pieced this block.  At first piecing the points did not exactly match in the center, so I took it apart -- and now they matched but still - it needed something.

Can't wait to do another.
