ALYOF - August Goal

I recently started to keep a calendar of blog posts to be created to keep me me on track with drafting and posting.  There were a few months that I missed the goal-setting for A Lovely Year of Finishes.  It's not like the hosts don't give enough time (seven days) to post your goal for the month....

I have been wanting to make a Plus quilt for some time.  I keep seeing Adrienne @ Chezzetcook Modern Quilts make them, so I figured it was time to try it.

I won a Denyse Schmidt fat quarter bundle at a MMQG meeting.  I added some Kona to the mix:  School Bus, Curry, Cappuccino, Pistachio, Baby Blue, and Raffia.

Chain piecing is the way to go.

My goal for August is to piece and quilt this Plus quilt.

Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes:


  1. Scratching off a few more Konas from that list huh? This looks great...the solids will really pop!

  2. Gotta love a Plus quilt! And I couldn't help but notice that you sneaked a little School Bus in there. :)

  3. I've been thinking, should I add another FAL to those that are in this 3rd quarter already for Adrienne?! I see your plus quilt and it reminds me that I, too, won a fat quarter bundle, with which I thought I should make a plus quilt...Love those florals!

  4. Congrats on winning! I can't wait to see this quilt finished :)
