Brown is Beautiful
Let me first say I LOVE the One Monthly Goal (OMG). It is really helping me stay focused and motivating me to keep my OMG project moving along.
|OMG February - Smith Mountain Morning|
Thus far this month I finished up 32 star center pinwheels ...
|Center Pinwheel for Brown and Blue Stars|
|SMM Brown Star Points x 48|
|Brown Corners for Blue Stars x 80|
My solution to the scrappiness that I didn't like is to make scrappy pinwheel centers but keep the points and the corners consistent within a star block. Each block will have different fabrics, though.
|SMM Brown Star|
In contrast, the cornerstone blocks will have controlled centers and scrappy logs (mainly because I already had so many made).
|SMM Alternate Cornerstone Block|
All the parts for the star blocks are finished and kitted up, ready to be sewn at the Nuts and Bolts Retreat week after next.
|SMM Stars Kitted Up and Ready to Sew|
Next week I will finish up the quarter-square centers and strip piece logs for the cornerstone blocks.

Since most of the strips for this quilt were cut several years ago, I haven't really made a dent in my brown scraps. Time to think about what else I can do with them .....
Oh, last week I mentioned inheriting the muslin for this quilt from my mother. Well apparently one piece has a lot of polyester in it and, although I thought I had washed and ironed it before cutting, this happened ...
I'm hoping it will be OK to include these units in the quilt. Any thoughts?
