Do you want the good news or the bad news first? How about the good news? In the midst of all of the insanity that currently is my life, I actually managed to finish Marc's Quilt! It's quilted and bound and it's even been washed. But I can't show it to you yet which leads me to the bad news... a couple of the circles didn't fare so well in the laundry. So sad.
The only solution I can see is to re-sew them down about 1/2" from the fray and then rip out the original quilting around the circles. Bummer.
