One Monthly Goal-July 2018

Patty from Elm Street Quilts is hosting One Monthly Goal,  and the link-up is now open for July. 

Just like my goal for June which I talked about here, my OMG for July is to continue working on this project, a BOM project called Time Began in a Garden by Sarah Sporrer.

I have 4 blocks left to do.  These are all hand done, it is raw edge primitive applique, some embroidery, and then hand quilted, and the backing excess is folded over to make the binding, So it is a quilt as you go project.  Then it is assembled and embroidery are added to the seams at the end.  

These are the 2 blocks I plan to get done in July:  

The sunflowers and the winter berries.  I put off doing those berries just about as long as I could.  I don't know why.  It is not as if I am trying to needle turn perfect circles.  It is just primitive raw edge.  

I'm excited for this project to be nearing the end.  The back of the pattern gives the year as 2000.  It is an old UFO.  

So I am linking up to One Monthly Goal on Elm Street Quilts here.

I especially like the winter berries block! That would be great in a folkart quilt of any kind, even not wool. I really like Payne's Sweet Land of Liberty that you did a long time ago, I think, maybe 10 years? Lately, I've been thinking about it, but ha, it isn't available as a pattern now, so I have to do my own blocks. LOL I have a few of them, though - an angel and a flower pot and something else, I think. It's a start. =) This fall. Best of luck with these two - I know you'll get them done!
