One Monthly Goal November Link-up

Welcome to November!  We had 72 goals linked up for October - lets see what this month brings!  

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.

The Quilters Planner has everything you need to organize and keep track of the work, personal and  quilting parts of your life to decrease your stress and increase your creativity.  The Quilter’s Planner also comes with a gorgeous magazine filled with inspirational quilting projects for you to sew.  New for 2020, are four different calendar formats and other options to optimize your planner.  The Quilter's Planner is offering one 2020 planner to a lucky participant.  (I've owned a Quilter's Planner for 3 years and have already ordered mine for 2020!)

I am very pleased to introduce our featured designer for November - Barb Cherniwchan of Coach House Designs.  

Barb has been designing quilt patterns for 11 years since the sale of her quilt shops in 2008. You can find over 300 patterns on her website The majority of Barb’s patterns feature fabrics by Moda designers but she has recently also been working with Clothworks, Maywood Studio, Benartex, Hoffman and Free Spirit. Many of Barb’s patterns have appeared in Quiltmania magazine.

Barb has also developed a web-based app found at which allows customers to switch out the fabrics in many of Barb’s patterns with either pre-loaded fabric swatches or fabrics you upload yourself. You can then print out a color copy of your version with updated fabric requirements. The possibilities are endless!

You can visit Barb Cherniwchan of Coach House Designs on Instagram, on Facebook, and in her Store.  Barb is offering one lucky winner 3 digital (pdf) patterns of their choice from her shop.

My goal for November is to stay current with the Mosaic Mystery QAL.  I've got other secret sewing going on and I don't want to get behind on the QAL.

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 November 24.)

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:
