My OMG (One Monthly Goal) for September. Finish this quilt. Made from squares I cut at a Missouri Star Quilt Co workshop with Kaffe Fassett. 2 bucket list things in one go. I made 4-patches and then did a simple falling charms layout. @elmstreetquilts #onemonthlygoal
I finished with only hours to spare! 2 quilt tops quilted and bound. Both were cut using my AccuQuilt Go cutter. The teal HSTs were cut out at a guild meeting to demonstrate how easy and accurately the AccuQuilt cutter is. The Lonestar was an experiment to see how easily you can cut strip sets on a 45° angle. I can see more Lonestars in my future. Each one with bigger rays than the next. #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts #accuquilt#accuquilt
"That Quirky Scrap Quilt" done! This was so much fun to piece, I want to make another right away. The pattern is by @sewnbyleila
This was my #onemonthlygoal for August and is the largest thing I've ever quilted. For the binding I tried something I found in a magazine called "scrap rolls". The author Carla Haake suggests that you match up all your scraps from a certain width, sew them in a long piece them roll them up for future use. I love it!
Yeah I know this style isn't everyone's favorite, but I love it so I'm keeping this one. Each of these fabrics is from a project I enjoyed making.

Borders on my AccuQuilt Lonestar Quilt. I used 3 more fat quarters to make partial stars so this quilt would be more of a throw than a square. Lonestars are so easy using the 2.5" strip cutter to cut the strips. Sew 2 strips together and then put them through the strip cutter again on the 45° line and you have instant diamonds. Making great progress on one of my One Monthly Goal projects. #onemonthlygoal
This is my #omg for August. This bag of scraps will magically become #thatquirkyscrapquilt that @sewnbyleila has on her blog. I don't think I can produce a finished quilt by the end of August, but my goal is for a flimsy
My One Monthly Goal for August is to finish these 2 tops. Both were made using my AccuQuilt Go Big cutter. I wanted to try a Lonestar, cutting the strip sets on the diagonal on the 2.5" strip cutter. I used 5 FQs and made 3 colour strip sets. Fun and easy. I learned this technique from Kim Einmo this winter at Quilting By the Bay in Panama City Beach Florida. I have more FQs that coordinate so I will be adding another border. And I can't wait to make another larger Lonestar. The second quilt used AccuQuilt HSTs cut during a demo at the Norfolk County Quilters Guild. I had a bagful of coordinating fabrics from the comfort quilt program and just cut a bunch of HSTs. The hardest part was finding a layout for the assorted squares. I might add a border also and use some of the cut HSTs in the backing. Will be a bit of a push for the month as there will be granddaughters around for most of the month and we have some crafty plans. #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts @accuquilt @keinmo
My first OMG goal done! Part of the Twilight Quilters' Guild Black and White and a Pop of Colour fat quarter exchange last September. Equilateral triangles cut with the AccuQuilt Go Cutter that I share with my sister. Walking foot quilting with 40wt black #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts
A modest #onemonthlygoal for July is to finish up this #quiltcollage I started in a Susan Carlson class last week. I need to do a bit more gluing, then quilt and bind. Should be doable, but this is July in Montana.... @elmstreetquilts
I've decided on my #onemonthlygoal for July. I am going to complete this #newyorkbeautiesandflyinggeese mini for a guild challenge. The plan is to add borders, make a backing, quilt and bind. Between vacations this month I'm not going to have a lot of time so I needed a smaller project and I really need to start checking off some of my unfinished projects. Read more about the #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts (link in her profile). #modernquilt#MakeModern
I am going to jump in my first time for One Monthly Goal. I have been mulling over resurrecting my blog. I used it from 2005 until 2010, mostly to document our travels. But Instagram is easier! In July I would like to finish this Black, White and a pop of Colour Quilt. 55" x 72"" without borders. A Challenge for the Twilight Quilters Guild. Normally this wouldn't be a monthly challenge, but it is time to start booking the programs for the guild for the next year and that will use up a lot time.
HSTs for the next round of #mmrgirtbysea#girtbysea designed by @keera.job are coming together nicely. My goal is to finish this round of the QAL before the end of June #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts 😀
OMG One Monthly Goal : Goal-setting for June. I am going to FINALLY start hand quilting this quilt. I hope to learn the Thimblelady technique and hand quilt at least one block. @elmstreetquilts Patty is this acceptable since my satellite's screwy 😉#onemonthlygoal
Pool is open and so is the June OMG link-up. Come join the fun! Just pick something that needs to get done - doesn't have to be finish a quilt, could be "make progress on a ufo". #onemonthlygoal#linkinprofile
#legendaryquilt progress! I missed my #onemonthlygoal though since didn't get half the blocks made. Have new found appreciation for #frixionpens that make precise sewing line and iron away. It's on inside so won't show if mark returns.
Yeah! Teacher gift delivered today (one day before the end of school 👍). I made this body pillow cover based on @sliceofpiquilts #bookendsminiquilt pattern. The directions were awesome! My biggest bummer is I didnt make the library card label from the pattern (which I love!!!). I figured the kids dont know what they are, and I'm not even sure her teacher is old enough to remember them 😂. I decided to use fabric markers to create a lined piece of "paper" for the label, which the kids can sign. #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts
I love when a deadline forces me to actually finish a project 😂 Nothing like the end of the school year to make me get this teacher gift DONE! My daughter's teacher has a claw foot "reading" tub in his classroom so I am making a body pillow cover based on the #bookendsminiquilt by @sliceofpilife #onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts
#onemonthlygoal @elmstreetquilts Psyched to start sewing. Starting small because I've started a pillow making and a cushion making class taught by a professional upholsterer. I'm reaching for the stars here.
This is my #onemonthlygoal for May. I'm going to make enough hexie flowers to make a quilted sewing machine cover. I know in one month I won't have enough to make the whole thing out of hexie flowers, but at least enough to make the pockets. This is my goal, to have the finished product by the end of the month! @elmstreetquilts
