Another Monthly Goal Accomplished

My One Monthly Goal for August was to complete a block-of-the-month quilt.  I started this is 2015 and then work on it stopped when I decided it wasn't going to the originally planned recipients.  My nephew got married in a small ceremony in July, 2016 right before I had surgery on my shoulder.  I'm slowly getting back on track completing larger quilts and thought this would be a good gift for the (somewhat) newlyweds.  When I put the finished top on my bed, I was tempted to keep it.  I even showed the picture to my sister to confirm whether or not her son and daughter-in-law would like it and was more than a little disappointed when she said they would love it.  But I know this will go to people who appreciate it, and it's perfect for their home on the coast of California.

I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts.  It's always fun to see what others accomplish during the month.


  1. Good for you on accomplishing your August goal! What a gorgeous quilt top you created; I bet they will be thrilled to receive this. What's new?

  2. It is certainly lovely and I can see why you wanted to keep it, I think a sign of a most successful quilt when the quilter herself totally loves it.

  3. It's beautiful Susan! So sad they loved it, huh?! I'm sure they'll appreciate every stitch. This challenge has been successful!
