I don't like having to admit this but for the last two months I haven't managed to meet my goals for OMG. Life is hopping and it's interfering with my quilting plans.
Patty of Elm Street Quilts, who hosts the OMB link up suggested that I go with smaller goals. Instead of aiming to finish a quilt perhaps I should make a couple of blocks. I've decided to heed her advise this month and I'm setting my goal at making four blocks for the Honey Pot Bee. I've wanted to participate in this bee but refer to life interfering with quilting plans above.
I think I can manage four blocks. I did make these two pictured below in one week. I know they are both very simple but surely if I can make two simple blocks in a week I can make at least one more complicated block in a week.
The block above is a sample block for a quilt kit I put together for my guild's bee day to be held at the end of the month. I didn't have to make the block but I really loved the fabrics Cheryl and I put together for the kit so I wanted to see a completed block. I love this combination of fabrics so I'm secretly hoping no one picks this kit so I can work on it.
We get together on bee days to make quilts for the sexual assault/domestic violence project at our local hospital.
The next block is also for the hospital program. It's a sample block for the block of the month program where guild members get a kit to make one block to be made later into a quilt. Can you tell that I picked the pattern for this month. I seem to be obsessed with plus blocks lately. It's going to be gorgeous as well. All turquoises and oranges with the white background.
So I'm hoping that if I take the pressure off myself and place smaller monthly goals, that I can meet those goals and make some process on the bigger goals at the same time.
And just so you know I finished my February goal on April 1st. Here's my finished Meadow Mystery quilt top. Thanks to Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs for running another wonderful quilting mystery and designing another lovely quilt.
And so you know that the quilting gods have a sense of humour...it was after I snapped this photo on April first and put it on the computer I noticed that there is a section in one of the blocks that is upside down! I'm linking up to the OMG link up at Elm Street Quilts, and because both blocks above are for charity I'm linking up with Kat and Cat Quilts. Kat and Cat Quilts hosts the Sew Some Love Link up on Tuesdays, for any quilt your are making for Charity..
