One Monthly Goal :: November 2019 Update

As they say in my native Minnesota--Uff da!! November flew by with most of my time and energy going into taking care of my rock star mom, who had bilateral (both) knee replacement surgery this month. She got home from the rehab hospital two days before Thanksgiving and is slowly hobbling around on her walker. On Thanksgiving day, while slicing apples on the mandolin, I sliced off the pad of my thumb! Yeouch! I was able to go to the ER, get fixed up, and was home in time to welcome a full house of guests. 

All that to say, my Black Friday plans of quilting my One Monthly Goal quilt and starting Bonnie Hunter's 2019 Mystery Quilt, Frolic were thwarted. Instead I spent the day in bed watching the Hallmark Channel. Not a bad compromise.

So while my OMG is not finished, the top is done, so I'm calling it a goal complete. 

The pattern is Pat Sloan's  2019 Block of the Month, Out of this World. I added a section to include the recipient's name using the letter patterns from Lori Holt's Spelling Bee. I still hope to have this quilt ready to be gifted in the next few weeks, and then back to the mystery quilt!

  1. Oh, geez!! SEW sorry that Thanksgiving and Black Friday didn't go the way you planned. The completed quilt top looks great and will wait patiently for you to feel up to quilting it!

  2. Ouch!!! I love my mandolin, but I always use the protective thingy that stabs the fruit/vegetables so I don't get cut...they are so sharp!! I wonder if using one of those gloves meant to go on your hand that holds your rulers when you are rotary cutting would help prevent this from happening?? Hope both you and your mom heal quickly!!

  3. Great quilt! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.


We love hearing from you!
