Making Pies and Tarts

So I visited a new quilt shop in my city, More Sew for You.  It's a lovely shop specializing in reproduction fabrics and patterns.  They are also the only shop in my area to carry a decent assortment of wool felt.  While browsing in the shop I fell in love with a display quilt called Pies and Tarts.  It's a Block-of-the-Month kit so naturally, I had to join in!

The quilt needs 100 'pies' and 80 smaller 'tarts' using an English paper piecing technique which is really very fun and keeps those circles nice and accurate.  So far, I have made ... one!
