Heidi at Red Letter Quilts issued a challenge at the beginning of the year to limit oneself to just
One Monthly Goal and then report at the end of the month.
Finish Smith Mountain Morning.
|Smith Mountain Morning|
If you follow me, you know I am not a scrappy quilter like Bonnie. But I was determined to take this opportunity to use up lots of blue and brown scraps as well as some muslin I inherited from my mother who died in 1979 (it still smells like her). I really believe the scrappiness is what made me not love this quilt; however, a recent conversation with another blogger has given me the inspiration to coordinate the scraps within each block. Now I'm back on track!
Well, imagine my joy when I discovered the RSC color for February is brown! So I can get credit for using brown scraps and accomplish a monthly goal at the same time!!! A week-long retreat later in the month should give me plenty of time to finish. But I need to finish cutting this week so SMM remains on my design wall for a second week.
