HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Welcome to 2019 and our first link-up party of the year! Did you see the overall announcement for the sponsors and featured designers for 2019? It will blow you away!
New to One Monthly Goal? Welcome! To join, share a photo of your project, some words about what you want to accomplish in a blog post, an Instagram post (tutorial) or a post on Flickr and add that photo to the link-up. Return at the end of the month and share your results. You can read about the event and the rules on the main event page.
We have wonderful sponsors this month - three (3) winners will be randomly chosen from those that link up in both the goal and the finish event.
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.
Aurifil is home to a beautiful rainbow of thread in all weights, perfect for any of your sewing and quilting needs. My favorite product is the designer collection boxes which coordinate with various fabric lines and this month's prize will be a large spool thread set from our featured designer! (How cool is that?)
I'm excited about our first featured designer for 2019 - Mathew Boudreaux - aka Mister Domestic!
I just love Mathew's tag line - Spreading joy and positivity through sewing and fabric play. My discovery of Mathew happened at QuiltCon two years ago when I saw a crowd of quilters enjoying his engaging and fun presentation and I've been a follower of Youtube and Instagram every since!
Mathew designs fabric for Art Gallery and has two lines available - Aura and Loved to Pieces. Both fabric collections are bright and beautiful, each inspired by adventures with his daughter. In addition to fabric, Mathew designs quilts and other fabric centered projects. His love of EPP and weaving is a feature in many of his designs.
Finally, Mathew is a teacher and shares countless tutorials on his Youtube channel. His enthusiasm and contagious laugh will keep you watching while you learn a new technique.

My goal for January is to complete and quilt my 2018 temperature quilt! Read more about the project and see a temperature quilt tutorial. (This picture shows the quilt through end of November - almost all of December hexies are actually attached.)
Now it is your turn to link up - what is your goal for this month? (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 making something with 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. Your blog post (or Flickr post) must contain a photo of your project, a clearly stated goal and a link back to Elm Street Quilts. Your Instagram post must include a photo of your project, a clearly stated goal and the tag #onemonthlygoal. (Entries which don't contain the required information may be disqualified.)
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 January 25.)
Make sure you add a link to this OMG post so others can find the OMG link-up from your blog. Let's make that easy - just paste this into your post:
Thanks for linking up!
Have a wonderful day!
