And then I went and broke two needles

Time elapsed: 3 hours plus 1 hour last night equals a total of 4 hours.

Aaaaargh! I set the stitch width and all such things to what was listed as allowed and broke not one but two needles in ten minutes. Now I have to rip part of the very tight seam and redo it.

But I am making decent progress, having cut and ironed the circles and pinned them to where I want them to be.

Now my husband and I are in disagreement as to where to add the "L". He wants a more traditional balanced look, I want something a bit more quirky and modern.

Oh! you are brave attempting a quilt in a day. I didn't know this was even possible!
Do not talk to me about hold-ups and broken needles I have way too much experience!!!....

Well, seeing how I work nearly full-time with a weekend-only husband and two kids, I don't technically manage to finish a quilt in a day. I just add up the hours. And try to make a quilt that's as simple as possible. This one certainly will be a minimalist version of things ....
