Announcing One Monthly Goal 2018

2018 is just a few days away - let's announce our sponsors for One Monthly Goal 2018!  

The basics for One Monthly Goal remain the same - pick a goal and link-up and then return at the end of the month to share your achievement.  (Need more information?  Read all about it on the One Monthly Goal page.)

The goal can be whatever you want - any step of the process in making something with fabric, thread or yarn.

Each month, there will be a random drawing from those who joined both the finish link-up and the goal link-up to select 3 participants who will win a prize from our sponsors!  Fat Quarter Shop and Make Modern magazine along with a featured designer are providing prizes each month.

But there is more!

At the end of each quarter (i.e. March, June, September & December), an extra prize will be awarded randomly from those who met their goals in any/all of the 3 months in that quarter.  Aurifil and Green Fairy Quilts have provided prizes for the quarterly winners.

Finally, 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!  Fat Quarter Shop and C&T Publishing are offering prizes for the grand finale.

Exciting isn't it?

And now, let's meet our wonderful sponsors.

  1. Patty so looking forward to 2018 OMG. A couple of life happenings kept me from 2 month in 2017. Hope to see you for all 12 in 2018. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  2. oh fun!!! I may have to sit down and make a list!!

  3. Can't wait!!! I am already planning my goals.

  4. Excited to try this concept out ... would like a bit of a gentle shove to get some of my lagging projects finished!

  5. WOW!! THanks for organizing all this!! I made January and am hopefully concluding with setting out to do intentional better in 2018.

    1. I made my December goal!! Annndddd....I posted the 2018 button on my blog. It's going to be a productive year!!! (I ccn feel it)

  6. Thank you for continuing the One Monthly Goal for 2018. It's been a great motivator for me in 2017. I'm looking forward to another year of focus and progress.

  7. Wow...great list of sponsors and designers. Thanks for continuing to host.

  8. Well, I'll TRY... My first monthly goal and probably my 2nd will be to get my sewing room back together. It became my "oh, get it out sight company's coming" room, everything and anything was tossed in there. Once I got that stuff out there were a couple non quilt related things, an old file cabinet and a book shelf with some old collectible magazines. My problem with those was waiting for some manly muscles, there are still 2 more drawers of the filing cabinet to bring out, but most of the magazines have already gone to a used book store, so as soon as I get some my manly guy back here, I can move the sewing stuff back in because I really do want to get back to my old projects and I have dozens of new ones in my head.

  9. I hope to finish one month quilt a month. Or at least a completed top. Thanks for encouraging us to get going.

  10. Thank you for the info about Cary Quilting Company. Chatted with them at the Raleigh quilt show last week.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
