One Monthly Goal June Link-up

Welcome to June!  We had 96 goals linked up for May - lets see what this month brings!  (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.

Make Modern is a digital magazine launched by a collaboration of quilters based in Australia. Their magazine is filled with modern quilt designs and a wonderful source of inspiration. Make Modern is offering a 6 month subscription to one lucky participant. 

I'm excited to announce that Holly Anne Knight from String & Story is our featured designer for June.  Holly Anne is a teacher, a quilt designer and a FMQ enthusiast!  String & Story is a place for women to quilt and live with confidence.  Holly Anne believes that creativity and wellness are beautiful twins.  She promotes both through free motion quilting and color theory classes, quilt patterns, and wellness education, including esstneil oils, healthy eating and gentle yoga.  Most recently, Holly Anne began creating the Rockstar Quilting Guild in order to offer guest speakers, deeper community, and more.

Holly Anne is offering 3 digital quilt patterns - Dogwood Blossoms, Polaris, and Perfect Fitto one lucky winner.  Visit Holly Anne on her Blog, on Instagram, on  Facebook, and in her Shop.

My goal for June is make lots of pineapple blocks and get them into a quilt top!

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 June 24.)

  1. Your bright pineapple blocks look like just the thing for a kids quilt, or a quilt for anyone!

  2. Love those pineapple blocks! That is on my list to do someday, if I ever run out of UFOs or if a squirrel gets to me!

  3. Pretty pineapple blocks, bright and fun! A perfect project for spring ;)

  4. Your pineapple blocks look like fun! Great colours

  5. What nice colorful pineapple blocks! They must be fun to stitch up!

  6. That Lanterns of Hope pattern looks gorgeous. That would be good reason to try again... so far I have not been successfull at all :) But your text mentions a different pattern - which is it? -- Best of luck for your own goal! Hope you have lots of fun. I am looking forward to seeing more of the pinapple gorgeousness :) xo

  7. Thank you for hosting this Patty. I love your pineapple blocks - good luck with your goal.

  8. Your pineapple blocks look fantastic, Patty! Your goal of making "lots" of them made me chuckle. Love that -- at the end of the month, you get to decide whether "lots" meant 20 blocks, 10 blocks, 3 blocks... ;-)

  9. Love your bright coloured pineapples.

  10. Great colours in your pineapple blocks. So cheerful and bright.

  11. Good luck with your pineapple blocks this month. Very fun and bright.


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