One Month Goal for July 2017

One Monthly Goal button

My major goal for the OMG over at Elm Street Quilts  is the one I want to finish the most! It is to take the top I have completed from a Craftsy Class – 2016 Block of the Month taught by Lynette Jensen. I now need to press it, pin baste it and machine stitch in the ditch quilt it with my walking foot and finally bind it.

This is so I can then give it as a gift to my sister who recently turned 65. I did intend it to be for the end of June when her birthday was, however the minky fabric I ordered for the backing has only just arrived, so therefore I will be a little late, but that’s okay.

This is what the quilt top looks like at present.

The quilt pattern was actually larger but I did not want one any larger than this, which will work out and a substantial lap quilt.

Quilt Plan for July

There are a number of projects I have on the go! This is my plan for July

  • Week 1   –  Complete the top of the 182 Solstice Quilt so that I can fold it away for awhile until I have time to quilt it.182 Solstice Challenge blocks
  • Week 2 –    Press, baste and quilt my Lynette Jensen Craftsy Class quilt and then I have the rest of the month to bind it.  My one month major goal!2016 Block of Month Quilt - Craftsy
  • Week 3 – Catch up on the Splendid Sampler blocks that have been set so that I am up to date.Blocks for Splendid Sampler
  • Week 4 Make a start on the sew along Grandma’s Kitchen  if my fabric has arrived by then, should do. I also need to buy some light background fabric for this.  Also look at fabric requirements for the I Love Home sew along beginning in August. Any spare time I have I will work on the Bloom blocks, maybe I will get one or two more completed.
