Sunday Sewing with Megan

 I spent a lot of time working on Smith Mountain Morning today.  I was making a zillion star points.  I put together one block to make sure I was sizing them right.  And I laid it out with the others to get a sense of it.
 That motivated me to go gangbusters on the star points.  I won't mention how I can't count and so I have WAY TOO MANY browns.  I think my border shall be a creative variation on Bonnie's plan.  Either that or I have a start on another one down the line.
And in other news, Megan made her quilt larger.
 Then we spray and pin basted it and she got to quilting!
 She did a great job and was very patient when the machine was giving her thread problems.  She would just rip it out and just keep on trucking.
 Then I taught her how to make the binding and she attached it all herself by machine.  It really looks great for a first quilt.  I am seriously proud of this gal!  Way to go Megan!  She is already thinking about what she wants to do for her next quilt!
