Which left me still needing a smallish appliqué project, so I thought it would suit me better to make random squircles of different sizes as the mood took me. I won't need to bother with a template because squircles are just a square with the corners rounded off, then needle turn appliquéd, and I have plenty of the taupe linen which I can use for my background. I much prefer that to the white linen background I used on my previous circle blocks.
As you can see my first one is slightly wonky but I think (hope) thist will add to the random and organic nature of the piece. My original circles won't go to waste as I will unsew them and use them for future squircles.
