I have decided that for now I am going to ignore all the things I haven't done (365 circles and purple scraps to name but two) and just pootle on with my stripy circles and a bit of quilting. It's not that I don't want to do the other things, but I find I am kicking against the idea (entirely self-inflicted) that I am "behind" with things. Tell me I've got to do something and I dig my heels in!
The circles, though, are moving on. This is where I was mid-morning...
and this is now.
Quite a big chunk is sewn together (3 circles high by 5 or 6 wide), the rest is just sitting there on the floor while I consider it. I am liking the vertical line of medium circles better now that I have repeated the idea in other parts of the quilt, so it can definitely stay, even though I've located the seam ripper.
No getting away from the fact that it all comes down to making the basic units again now, and printing more strips (though that's lots of fun). I started off just making them willy-nilly but now, especially with the biggest circles, I am trying to look at what I have and think a bit more about what will work best in the gaps.
