One Monthly Goal (OMG) – October

My goals for October were to get back to quilting after the hand surgeries.  My projects were Mountmellick, Sweet Stitches, Finish my RSC 2017 quilt top, and quilt my Hearts Quilt.

I have the center Medallion almost completed for Mountmellick.   Yesterday I prepared the 1/2″ hexagons for the hexagon flowers for each corner.  I had planned on making this quilt in 2014 – just a little delay here and there.

Sweet Stitches by Kathy Schmitz was a BOM that I believe I ordered in 2014 and now finishing Blocks 2, 3 and 4. I will be working on a few more blocks in November.

I made tons of 4 patches when I could during the summer months of recuperating and made a push this month to complete the quilt.  There are issues with the top, but it was a way for me to keep my sanity!  Hubby likes it so he will have another lap quilt (ok large lap quilt).  I am thinking that this top will be loaded and quilted in November.

Last Friday I did a marathon quilting day and finished my Heart Quilt which I had loaded in my long arm in May and could not finish it until now.  I started my quilting journey in early 2000 and in 2003 this was my first appliqué quilt.  I had to laugh at the stitches and I really thought I was doing so well.  It is good to always keep those beginning quilts to watch your progress in quilting.  I will bind the quilt in November.

It always feels good to set a goal and be able to complete them.  It has been a long 5 months but I am back to my passion of quilting.  Have a great day.

  1. Lovely handwork. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish. Please do add a link to the linkup in your post.


  2. I like the Sweet Stitches. Been doing some blocks to make a long hanging to put across the top of bed on the wall . Hope to have it done by Spring.


    1. Thx, I am enjoying working on them – they are easy. We will not be traveling to AZ this year. We changed our minds will do a week in Galveston Texas as a short and fun get away to “water”. Hope you have a great week-end Nancy. Thx for commenting.


  3. Hi, I think your quilts look lovely. I have an ‘arm’s length’ rule, that is, if I hold something an arm’s length away and I can’t see stitches, that’s about as close as a normal person would usually look at quilts and they’ll love it!


    1. Thank you Lynn. The Galloping Horse theory is another one. It is rare for me to do this, but if I had to make another 4 patch quilt I would scream, Especially with a two toned white with a color! LOL. It was good therapy and keep me from going insane! Thx for the comment.
