What’s on the Frame: Smith Mountain Morning

I decided to put one of my UFO quilts on the frame.  It’s been awhile since I paid any attention to UFO’s at all.

I have several of Kelli’s quilts here and and two of Kayla’s, along with a couple of mine that all need to be quilted but my Smith Mountain Morning was my pick to work on.


I spent most of Thursday working on it in between some drama and some babysitting.

I am using a brown thread on top and doing some Baptist Fan designs.  Typically I don’t alternate the direction of the fans but this time I was wanting to expand my repertoire and gave it a try.  So far, I am really happy with it and will definitely be doing it again.

Between the Hobbs 80/20 batting and the many seams in this quilt it didn’t lay down the best as I was quilting.  Nothing awful but lately I haven’t been quilting quilts that are so heavily pieced…and I’ve been using Warm and Natural.

Today’s mission, get this quilt bound.  You can bet that I will be doing the debate trying to decide if I should bind in blue or brown.  I think it will all depend on which color I have enough of.

We’ll be hooking up with all these fun places……Confessions of a Fabric AddictLink a Finish FridayFreedom Fridays, and Crazy Mom Quilts.
