Friday Finish

... of Sorts

My One Monthly Goal (OMG) for February (I know, I know, it's now March!) was to finish Smith Mountain Morning.

Well, yesterday I finished the last four cornerstone blocks and this morning I added the last two rows so the center is done!

 Still needs a good pressing so that I can measure for borders. As I suspected, the light areas I described as "baby poop" in an earlier post balanced out when the remaining blocks were added.

I am so glad to be done with this part!  If I continue to apply myself to getting the borders on, I will be able to claim another OMG finish, albeit a month late.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) is another story, though. While I claimed the brown scraps in SMM, I never got much else done with the February color (brown) other than 3 or 4 string blocks. As to the March color of purple, I haven't even pulled out the box of purple scraps! But I still have 3 weeks left in the month ...

Even though SMM is not entirely finished, I think this amount of progress is whoop-worthy so I'm linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

  2. This looks amazing! And with such a complex quilt, you are certainly doing well to be only a bit late on this goal!

  3. Congratulations on all the progress. It's hard to work on something you aren't thrilled with. SMM looks great, the bright blues take center stage.

  4. It looks terrific and you're right, the brown tones do balance out beautifully. Congrats on your progress!
