I’m certain this project would have been put to one side without the incentive of the One Monthly Goal. So thankful for the motivation and results that setting a goal with Patty’s link party can bring.
At the start of this month I opened a box of blocks and fabric that had been tucked away for over a year. My stated aim: To make as many of the Sugar Block Club blocks as my fabrics will allow and then decide how I’m going to set them into a quilt top – I might incorporate the big cushion front into the quilt top or chop it up to use the fabrics in the blocks…
I’m pleased to be able to share the completed quilt top.
I pieced just one more of the 2016 Sugar Block Club blocks before deciding my fabrics just wouldn’t stretch to create the remaining four blocks in Amy Gibson’s year long BOM project. The large square was an abandoned cushion cover (the original reason for purchasing the fabrics). I had to order an extra length of the purple fabric to make the sashing. I will use the remainder for the binding.
Sad to say the project will return to the box for a while as I have some other project deadlines to meet over the coming month. But I do have a plan for my version of the Sugar Block Club quilt: There is a space on a wall in our hall where the quilt can hang. And the leftover fabrics? I reckon I could make a seat cover for the bench 🙂
Linking with Elm Street Quilts to see how other One Monthly Goal participants have fared in their quest to push a project through to the next stage.
