Playing with Piecing

Prominence Point C

At first glance, because squares are being used to form a circle, this looks like it will be an awkward letter to piece.

We're about to find out if it is or not.
What if I try peeling it like an onion?

This process of peeling away layers is a little like taking apart a Log Cabin block.

When I peel away the first layer, I'm left with a middle section that consists of a white square with 4 small black squares in the corners.
When I peel away the second layer, I get this. 

Nothing here looks at all hard to sew.  First glances can be deceiving.

For more about this letter see 1 March 2010, or, as it is sometimes known, yesterday.
