Atoms and Oranges - Quilting Progress

The edges are near on my Atoms and Oranges quilt.  I finished the hooped part this morning, and that's the "center" finished.  All that remains are the last three inches around the outside.

The deadline is coming up quick, so it's time to engage the thrusters!

Friendship Rounds

All of the pretty fabrics cut last week have been stitched into a small Round by Round block.  These little friendship stars are now winging their way into four new sewing rooms and I'll get to see them again in April!  I can't wait to see what they grow into!

Block is 12.25" unfinished.

Despite trying so hard to be accurate with my seam allowances, the middle of the block finished up larger than it was supposed to.  It was refactored easily enough by making the long grey rectangles on the top and bottom a little longer.  I was dis-inclined to take all of those seams apart and try to rescale the block!
