square circles

Well, I sort of/kind of finished my first quilt "square" on A&A's quilt, and let's just say the circumference of the ring is bulging a bit. I called my mother-in-law, and she came over and looked at it, made a few suggestions, then whispered, I'd just do another one and see if it has the same problems. But I am going to take her dreaded advice, removed a rung of the circle and resew it. Hopefully that will fix some of the bulge.
Meanwhile, I've had this quilt idea in my head for so long that it's hard to let the dream die. I would really like to have it ready for June, but reality is that it's just not going to happen. Unless I quit my job and do nothing but quilt all day, and somehow I don't see that happening.
A part of me thinks if I get the quilt top completed and marked, then I can find someone who machine quilts and hire them to do it. But I'm not sure that would be quite as much "fun".
And if all goes well, I might actually be able to post pictures of completed projects this week. Haha...not the quilt top, but some outstanding others. Upward and onward!
