One Monthly Goal October Link-Up

Welcome to October!

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 October is to turn what I expect to be about 30 or so fall themed hexies into a mini quilt.  I am new to the hexie craze and find that I am enjoying myself creating these little things.

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

Fat Quarter Shop offers a tremendous selection of fabric, notions, books and just about anything you will need for your project. Consider their Sew Sampler box to receive a monthly surprise delivery of fabric and fun.   Fat Quarter Shop is offering a $25 gift certificate to one lucky participant.

Make Modern is a digital magazine, available monthly, launched by a collaboration of quilters based in Australia.  Their goal (sourced from their site) says it all -
One of our ultimate goals is to be a driving force in the modern quilt movement. We want you to feel like we're already friends, the kind of friends who totally understand your fabric addiction, who will assist with your quilting problems and who will help you grow as a quilter. We hope you'll love us even though we're all a little bit crazy. 
Make Modern is offering a 6 month subscription to one lucky participant.

I'm very excited to introduce you to this month's featured designer, Lorna McMahon from Sew Fresh Quilts.  Lorna is based in Ontario, Canada.

Lorna has created a place for quilters to gather on her website with a weekly link-up called Let's Be Social and regular QALs.  I've participated in several of her QALs and my favorite was Dog Gone Cute.

Lorna is a wonderful supporter of the quilting community and I'm happy to call her a friend.

Her patterns are just delightful and often include animals like giraffes, elephants, and monkeys. There are quilt patterns that feature unicorns, mermaids, baby ducks and race cars.

You can visit Lorna in her pattern shop, on her blog, on Facebook and on Instagram. Lorna is offering three (3) pdf patterns of the winners choice to one lucky participant.

Now it is your turn to link up - what is your goal for October?  (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 October 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
