I used some "soft" blacks for the cornerstones. That is, they are not DEEP black, but have modest white prints toning them down a bit. I didn't want the cornerstones to really stand out, just be a little noticeable.

The outer sashings have no cornerstones.
This is a square quilt, right now about 84", which is wide enough for our bed, but not long enough to tuck under the mattress. My current plan is to wait until it is quilted, and THEN add another 12" of length to the bottom edge. This additional piece will not be quilted, but will give me a "tuck under" that will hold the quilt in place. My mom used to do this to blankets that were too short.
Furthermore, I also have the back almost completed. One more really long seam.
Company for chili tonight, so I need to leave the sewing room and work in the kitchen.
Catherine says pick up two quilts tomorrow
House smells like chili
Charlie's night to cook, so he'll do everything else
Snow melted off the front walk, so we don't have to shovel
