Having replaced the errant too-dark piece in the beach scene layout, I'm letting the whole thing sit on the design board for a few days to consider it thoroughly, and in the meantime returning to feathered circles. I only have 2 more to do now, then I'll move on the the background and remaining border before I finally fill in the circles around the motifs.
These Eiffel Towers have been both fun and fiddly to quilt. I actually wrote this last night, but it somehow remained as a draft. The feathered wreaths are now all done and I'm working my way through the background.
