One Monthly Goal July Link-up

Welcome to July!  There were 90 people who joined the link up last month - let's 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.

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!  Aurifil will be mailing a thread pack to one lucky winner!

Quiltfolk is the magazine for quilters, by quilters, with about 180 pages of inspirational stories and stunning photography. Featuring four new locations each year, it’s like taking a vacation with your favorite quilt friends without ever leaving home!  One lucky winner will win a years subscription! 

My goal for July is to finish adding the hand quilting highlights to my Carnival quilt and add a faced binding.  I've had this quilt in the 'almost finished' stage for months and it is time to get it done!

Now it's your turn to 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:

  1. I love your carnival quilt. The colours remind me of fiesta pottery, but then more subdued, and the quilting looks like thickly applied oil paint. It's difficult to believe this is a photo of fabric!

  2. Hi Patty! Good luck with finishing your goal for this month. I have a few quilts that have stalled out and need the push from the OMG goal setting. Thank you for the linky party. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Your Carnival quilt is so striking--hope you can get it finished!

  4. Oh, Patty -- Carnival is a wonderful design!

  5. I love the way the colours play in this quilt. I look forward to seeing which technique you use for the faced binding as there are so many "how tos" out there.

  6. I love the quilt you're working on, Patty. Great colors!

  7. The Carnival quilt is excellent, I look forward to seeing what you've done at the end of this month.

  8. Good luck on meeting your goal Patty! It is beautiful!

  9. Your Carnival quilt is looking amazing; I can't wait to see what those extra hand quilting details are that you'll be adding! This one reminds me of those old LP records, or of dinner plates with chop sticks. It's a really yummy color palette, too. Maybe I'm just getting hungry for lunch... ;-)

  10. Good luck with your goal. I look forward to seeing it when you've added the additional quilting.

  11. Good luck with your July OMG.

  12. I love everything about your Carnival quilt! The quilting provides so much texture and accentuates the curves.

  13. Love your blog. Thanks for hosting a fun linky party.


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