Manju's Circles-Drunkard's Path QAL - Part 1

Desi Quilters was founded with the idea of providing a platform for sharing and adding to the collective knowledge of the art that is Quilting.Taking the idea forward, we have with us another delightful Quilt-Along (QAL), this time from the delightful DQ Manju, a lady who is all elegance both in her self as well as her work.

So do join us in this journey along the drunkard's path (er..that didn't sound right, did it?) and try your hand at this deceptively simple QAL.
