One Monthly Goal :: April 2018 update

It's that time again, the end of the month means time to post an update on my One Monthly Goal. 

When I set my One Monthly Goal for April, I was sailing the Caribbean. As I write this update back home in Ohio, it is overcast and rainy. Fortunately, the colors of the quilt reminded me of the warmth and beauty of our trip.

At the start of the month, I only had a few blocks done. I made them over a year ago after my friend Jamie got engaged. I knew I wanted to make her a scrappy, beachy quilt for her wedding to Toben, but I didn't have the actual design figured out.

The "love" letters are paper pieced using the Wonky Alphabet pattern I bought from Kelby Sews. For the "HEIM" in the middle, I made my own templates in the same style as Kelby's lowercase letters. Here they are in reverse because I love the stained glass look of a quilt top in the sun.

Today is actually Jamie & Toben's first anniversary. I didn't quite finish the quilt, but the top is done and should be headed their way soon.

And it's DONE! 

Here's a recap of other One Monthly Goals I have made.

  1. What a lovely wedding gift! Full of love, I'm sure they will appreciate it a lot. Love the picture from the back too!

  2. Wow - that quilt is just awesome! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!

  3. Oh my gosh I LOVE this top! I have a small quilt I made using this block and it is so fun! I love the colors you used and agree the stained glass look is wonderful! What an amazing gift I'm sure they will love it. I also love how you track your goals here, what a great idea. I'm pretty new to this so I might need borrow this idea from you and start listing mine.


We love hearing from you!
