There's just time for a quick post today as I have to get back to work on a custom quilt on the longarm. I only have about two hours work left to go on it, I think.
Here is a picture of when the quilting first started...
....I love when I get the opportunity to sew that motif!
And I love when a quilt calls for a bit of curved cross-hatching...
I've actually just popped in to say that I have completed my One Monthly Goal for September, which was to finish the top of my Farm Girl Vintage quilt.
It was started quite a while back, and I'm so glad to have it finished. I still love the look of the quilt. I'll enjoy quilting it, but that will have to wait until January.
A special shout-out goes to my friend, Karen Z, for designing the Canadian flag block to replace the American flag that was part of the original pattern.
Last year for Christmas I received the pattern book for Farm Girl Vintage 2....now I can look forward to starting that one! I think I'll make a goal of two blocks per month. I seem to do well with an agenda of some sort.
I was excited to learn last month that I won the prize for One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts blog. She hosts the OMG every month. If someone posts their goal at the beginning of the month, and then posts that they did indeed complete that goal, the person has a chance to win a gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop.
Last month, that person was me! I ended up choosing a fat quarter bundle to use in an upcoming Snowflake quilt. You'll read more about that in an upcoming post!
Here is the fabric I chose, Polar Magic by Lemonni...
That's it for now....back to work for me!
I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal Finishes - September.
