One Monthly Goal - March Goal Link-up

Welcome to March!

New to One Monthly Goal?  Welcome!  You can read about the event and the rules on the main event page.

Sign up to receive email notifications when the One Monthly Goal linkup is open.  Think of it as a helpful reminder!

My goal for March is to quilt my wall hanging.  I've already added the borders and started the spiral quilting but only have a photo to share of the flimsy.  The pattern was designed by Cheryl @MeadowMistDesigns and available as a mystery QAL.  When done, this wall hanging will look awesome hanging in the recently decluttered and cleaned up bonus room that is now my studio. I blogged a bit more about this quilt top here.

We have three great sponsors for March and there  will be three (3) winners this month!

Fat Quarter Shop, one of my blog sponsors, offers a tremendous selection of fabric.  Take a minute to check out their 2017 Designer Mystery QAL.  Fat Quarter Shop is always very generous with their fabric kits so you will have plenty of extra fabric for your stash (or make some extra blocks!)  Fat Quarter Shop offers fabric from many different manufacturers and you can find anything you are looking for there!  Fat Quarter Shop is offering a gift certificate to one lucky participant.

Bagmaker Supply is your one stop shop for everything for the pursemaker.  They sell beautiful, affordable, hard to find handbag hardware.  Many of the bags features in this year's Bag It tutorials use magnetic snaps, buttons or grommets sourced from Bagmaker Supply.  Bagmaker Supply is offering a $20 gift certificate to one lucky participant.

Let's meet our featured designer - Leah Day.  

Leah's passion is teaching quilting online.  Leah has produced many educational videos and workshops.  She runs an annual block party and teaches participants how to make the quilt from beginning to end.

My first introduction to Leah was in 2009 when she started her project of 365 FMQ designs. She shared a new design every day for a year, complete with videos on how to stitch the designs.   Leah continues to share FMQ designs on her blog, The Free Motion Quilting Project.   

Leah has published several books on FMQ design including one with her original 365 available in a nice spiral bound book available in her shop.  You can find Leah at The Free Motion Quilting Project , on her Youtube channel and in her on-line quilt shop at Leah

Leah is offering one lucky winner an Online Quilting Workshop called Quilting a King on Your Home Machine. 

Now it is your turn to link up - what is your goal for March?  (A goal could be to finish a quilt but it could also be to attach a binding.  Whatever it takes to help you move forward and make progress on your projects!  And as long as the project involves a needle and/or fabric, you can link up!)

Make sure you visit the One Monthly Goal event page for the specific requirements for links and social tags. 

And remember, to be eligible for the prize(s) by random drawing you must linkup at both the goal setting and the accomplishment linkup in a given month.   (The One Monthly Goal accomplishment linkup will be available on March 25.)

Make sure you add a link to this OMG post so others can follow where you are linking.   Let's make that easy -  just paste this into your post:  

Thanks for linking up!

Have a wonderful day! Patty
