One Monthly Goal 2017 - Sponsor Announcement!!!

One Monthly Goal will be back for 2017 - with some awesome sponsors and new surprises!

The basics of One Monthly Goal for 2017 remain the same -

  • link up your quilting goal* at the beginning of the month
  • link up your finished goal at the end of the month
  • make sure your post has a link back to Elm Street Quilts and social tags are used with Instagram

You can read the specifics about linking up and the social tags on the main event page.

(* As long as your goal involves a needle and/or fabric, you can link up.  And your goal doesn't have to be 'finish a quilt'.  It could be 'get 15 blocks made.')

I am very excited to announce the amazing and generous sponsors who have lined up to support us each month. Each month, there will be two (2) randomly selected participants who will win prizes from the sponsors.

Fat Quarter Shop will sponsor every month with a gift certificate.  Bag Maker Supply, Green Fairy Quilts, Clothworks and Make Modern Magazine will each sponsor three (3) months.  And Aurifil will be one of the sponsors for the Grand Finale.


We'll have a grand finale this year!  Essentially, the more you link up, the more chances you will earn for the grand finale drawing.  No extra goal setting required or goal finishing required. Participate every month, you'll earn 24 chances to win in the grand finale.  Set a goal in a month but not finish? No problem - you'll still earn a chance for trying.

Thanks to these amazing sponsors for their support!

In addition to the chance to win a prize each month from those amazing sponsor, One Monthly Goal will also feature one designer each month.


Each of these amazing women were excited to sign up and support each of you in your goal setting.   The monthly goal setting post will highlight a designer and we'll learn a bit about them and their work.  Then, one (1) lucky randomly chosen participant will win a pattern from that designer.
