Spring CQ...Corner Arcs Finished

I'm so glad you all enjoyed my garden tour! It IS nice out there...and has been so inspiring to me all spring and now summer.
My in-laws have come and gone and we had a fine visit. Even so, I managed to complete covering the seams in the green corner sections of my quilt while they were here...mostly because I get up at 6 a.m. and they get up at 10! (And can you believe I actually made blackberry pancakes, bacon, eggs, and fruit salad for 8, served it up all at once and it was good? I am no cook, but I was pretty proud of that sleight of hand.)

Here are my green corner arcs, all done I think.

The upper left arc....

...and the upper right.

The lower right arc....

...and the lower left.

The seam treatments are simple in these sections, just as they are in the center section. They also repeat from arc to arc. At this point in a crazy quilt's development, I have to pull real hard on the reins to keep it from getting away from me and becoming too busy.

Now I finally get to work on the center! I'm going to try to get that pieced over the next day or two.

Wow, you've got discipline! How beautiful those corners have become, and they were so nice already! And about your breakfast: I like cooking, but it shows, I'm overweight ;-(.
So better be less than a good cook ;-)), hahaha
