Faith Circle in A Square is the 16th Square in the Squaring The Circle CAL 2018! I chose to name this weeks square Faith because it just seemed fitting. Not to mention she is beautiful, quick to make and easy to love. This square can also be used for other projects and will always be available. Enjoy!
