Time Out for Turkey (and lefse)

I've just finished rolling out a double batch of lefse, the Scandinavian counterpart to a tortilla but made with potatoes.

It's a messy job, as you can see, but it's worth it if you've grown up with lefse for the holidays. Our family served it as a bread, with butter or plain with a meat such as Swedish meatballs rolled up in it or just dipped in the luscious gravy. Some use it as a dessert and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on (with the butter!)

What does this have to do with quilts? Hmmm. We could focus on the shape.
There are many wonderful quilts with circles; vintage and contemporary.

Do you have any quilts with circles?
