This week I finished all 28 of the log cabin blocks for the Smith Mountain Morning quilt! They went faster than I thought they would since my goal for this week was to have half of them done. There’s nothing like a cold, snowy January week to get lots of sewing done!
I realized towards the end that I’m not the best counter when it comes to cutting out tons of tiny pieces so I had extra of some pieces and I was short of other pieces and had to cut more. Here are all my extra pieces.
The next step is to make the star blocks. There are 16 blue star blocks and 12 brown star blocks. Each of these stars has a pinwheel center so I’m working on those first.
This means sewing 112 half square triangles and then cleaning up those squares and sewing them together into pinwheels.
They’re calling for more snow so I’m sure I’ll have these all done before you know it.
