Slow Progress

Another Monday

I know it seems like Smith Mountain Morning has gone on forever (after three years I guess you could say it has), but being my One Monthly Goal, I aim to stay focused.

Smith Mountain Morning
Sunday I stitched up three cornerstone blocks and one of the blue star blocks, just so I could show a different photo.

Shrunken Muslin
I used one set of the shrunken star points to see if I still had enough seam allowance (I did) and how they would behave with further ironing (I used a lower heat setting). I think I'm going to go ahead and use the shrunken points; I made too many of them to consider remaking those units. This quilt won't be going to any shows!

Today I will make the final two sizes of blue cornerstone logs and all the pieces/parts will be ready to assemble at the Nuts & Bolts Retreat next week.

Heading out in a few minutes to deliver some charity quilt tops to my former guild.

Linking up at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.


  1. I love two-block quilts - there's just a special magic when they're combined. I'm glad your star points worked - that would have been a major pain in the butt to do over!

  2. It seems that you are focused on Smith Mountain. I agree on using what you have done. None of my quilts are destined for judged quilt shows although I do plan on showing the "Wedding Quilt" at the Krotz Spings quilt show in July.

  3. Loving how your project is progressing! Sandi

  4. Blues and browns play so nicely together. This is going to be a beautiful quilt. I'm glad you can use your star points.

  5. This quilt will be gorgeous when it is finished, so it's worth focusing on. So glad those star points worked out!

  6. It's going to be a pretty quilt. Congrats for sticking with it.
