One Monthly Goal July Link-up

Welcome to July!  We had 90 goals linked up for June - 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 am thrilled that Bonnie Hunter - yes that Bonnie Hunter! - is our featured designer for July. 

Bonnie is a quilt designer, author, teacher, vintage machine collector, blogger and, most recently, the product owner of a Quilt Retreat Center which will open in 2020. 

Bonnie is a scapaholic quilter extraordinaire who generously shares her love of quilting and scraps with her many followers of her blog, her Facebook group and through  the very popular QuiltCam during which Bonnie turns on the web-cam and chats as she sews!

Her web site Quiltville is packed full with tutorials, free patterns, plus information about her books and other Quiltville merchandise.

Many quilters first discover Bonnie when they hear about her mystery quilt.  Traditionally, the first clue is released on the day after Thanksgiving followed by clues each Friday until the big reveal around January 1.  Bonnie schedules her mystery during this time because she knows it serves as a comfort to those who may not be able to spend time with family during the holidays.  Bonnie also runs a weekly leaders and enders challenge which kicks off each July.

Bonnie is offering one lucky participant a digital copy of her Garlic Knots pattern. You can find Bonnie on her blog, on Instagram, on Facebook and see all her patterns and books in her store.

My goal for July is finish the quilt top assembly and started quilting the gift for my nephew and fiance.  I'm keeping the details of this quilt a secret until it is gifted but I can show you a few blocks!

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 July 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:
