March 2018 One Monthly Goal Update


Spring break is a few hours old and we are already 2 states down the road. But, I'm happy to say that I did finish my One Monthly Goal this month and just before we left home, I took a picture of the finished top of my Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, On Ringo Lake.


After all the social quilting I did last year, my goal this year is to finish all the quilts I started. I am just thrilled with the reveal of Bonnie's mystery quilt. Last year was my first year participating in her mystery quilt along. She has such great ideas for using my overflowing pins of scraps.


Bonnie used teal, brown, coral, and white in her version on On Ringo Lake, which was inspired by a trip to Minnesota.

As a native Minnesotan, I was delighted that my beautiful state provided her inspiration. Last year, I loved seeing the variation in colors used by other quilters. So this year, I chose my own colors. I used the watery blues for Minnesota's 10,000 lakes, gray and white for our long winters, and purple for the Minnesota Vikings. (SKOL!)


I was too late to join the completed quilt link up, but you can see other On Ringo Lake quilts here.

To see more pictures of this quilt in progress, look for #OnRingeisLake on Instagram. If you'd like to see what I'm currently working on, follow me at de Jong Dream House.

  4. On Ringo Lake is gorgeous. My goal for 2018 is also to finish-up all quilt tops. You sure get a lot done. 'Wish I could do as much as you.
