September One Monthly Goal

New to One Monthly Goal?  Welcome!  To join, share a photo of your project plus, some words about what you want to accomplish in a blog post or  and add that photo to the link-up.  Return at the end of the month and share your results.  (Results link-up opens for the last 7 days of the month.)

This is the 93rd month that I've hosted One Monthly Goal! It is also my final month. Starting in October,  Anne-Marie from Stories From the Sewing Room will be the host. (Anne-Marie and I have been co-hosting since January.)

My very first blog post as host was in November 2016 (see that post) when I picked up the hosting role from Heidi @ Red Letter Quilts. For many years, I ran the monthly link-up with sponsors and highlighted designers each month. In 2022, I stopped having sponsors (it is a lot of work to line them up) and no one seemed to mind. Turns out, joining the OMG link-up and sharing your goal is enough incentive to get something done!

I want to thank everyone who has linked up over the last 7 years. It has been great fun to see your projects and celebrate your successes with you. Now I look forward to seeing you link up with Anne-Marie.

Enough said - let's get September's One Monthly Goal started!

My goal for September is to finish quilt top assembly and quilting on my scrappy HRT quilt. I am a bit further along than this picture shows.

Now it is your turn to link up - what is your goal for this month?   The One Monthly Goal accomplishment linkup will be available on September 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:

  1. Thank you for hosting us for the past 7 years. I hope that you continue to join in with us each month.

  2. Thank you for all your work in providing this motivating link up! I have often participated over the years and am ready to get organized again for the fall, so I'm very glad that Anne Marie is able to take over the tradition.

  3. Wow! I didn't know you'd been hosting OMG for so long. That's a big commitment, and I understand wanting to move on. Love your HRT project! Are those improv-cut? HRTs are a new-to-me shape to play with, which I found delightful to making using Latifah Safir's HuRTy ruler. But I think it would be fun to try cutting and piecing them improvisationally. I'm looking forward to seeing your HRT project evolve.

  4. 7 years is a very long time, well done! And massive thank you for the motivation!

  5. Thank you so much for hosting all this time, you have helped me to complete so many projects. I look forward to continuing with Anne-Marie.

  6. Hi Patty, good luck with your September Goal. This time the t-shirt quilt will get pieced - I have not choice...which is when I usually get things done lol Thanks for the party!


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