One Monthly Goal

My sewing, like my sewing room, tends to be “all over the place”! I work a little bit on one project, then sew on another, maybe put together a quilt back – in other words, things slowly move to completion, but in a scattershot sort of way. I finished four quilts last year, which was better than I have done in probably 8 or 9 years, so I was happy with that. But – and there’s always a but – I could have been more organized about the whole thing and aimed to get more quilts done.

So I was pretty happy to see this on the Elm Street Quilts blog...

The “rules” are pretty simple; here they are in Patty’s words:

The basics for One Monthly Goal are as follows - 
Select ONE of your quilt-related goals for the month.  This could be to make a few blocks. cutting fabric for a project, sewing on a binding, or finish a quilt top.  Any goal that involves a step in the process of making with thread, fabric or yarn is a valid goal.

Describe your goal in a:
·         blog post complete with a photo(s) of your project and a link back to One Monthly Goal.
·         via Instagram your photo and description of your goal along with the social tag #onemonthlygoal and @elmstreetquilts 
·         via Flickr complete with a photo(s) of your project and a link back to One Monthly Goal. (link to this main event page or to the actual linkup page)

Add your project to the link-up at the goal setting link-up.  (Each month, the goal-setting link-up will be open from the 1st through the 7th, closing at 11:55 pm ET.)

Then come post again at the end of the month to share your accomplishment in the One Monthly Goal Finish Party.  The finish party will run for 7 days at the end of the month.

Each time you join the linkup you earn an entry into the Grand Finale prize drawing!  Link up in the goal setting and the finish linkup each month of the year earns 24 entries into the Grand Finale prize drawing. Link up goals one month but never quite got to the finish?  You still earn an entry for participating in the goal link up!

There are prizes donated by the Fat Quarter Shop, Make Modern and others – doesn’t this sound like fun? I already signed up!

May all of you have a happy, healthy, quilty New Year!
