One Monthly Goal May Link-up

Did you read about the sponsor list for One Monthly Goal 2021!  Check it out!

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 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 who join both the goal and the finish link-up!

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!

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.

My goal for May is to turn this big beautiful ball of fabric string into a Jelly Roll Rug (affiliate link).  I used leftover batting scraps and scraps of ombre fabric.  I can't wait to see how the colors will reveal themselves.

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 May 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'm really intrigued by your project. I hope you post progress photos.

  2. Those jelly roll strips are going to make for a beautiful rug, Patty!

  3. What an interesting rug in the making. What have you used to stuff the tubes?

  4. I just wanted you to know that I did do a goal for April and though I did not get it finished --I am still working on it--two months in a row now--the borders have given me a headache on how to finish them--but they are not going back into the 'ufo' pile--they are getting finished!!! Thanks for running this challenge--and have an awesome month--
    luv, di

  5. Have fun with your Jelly Roll Rug! I've been tempted to make another. Yours will be beautiful with those ombre colors.

  7. Patty it looks like you will have a pretty rug out of the ball of inspiration.
