October Goal for a ALYOF

Earlier this year, I won a Gee's Bend pattern from Debby Kratovil Quilts.  I chose the Medallion Variation pattern:

Kona:  Poppy - Black - Corn Yellow - Jamaica - Turquoise- Purple - Yarrow - Grass Green - Pomegranate

I've had the pieces all cut and ready to sew for some time.  So October's goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to piece and finish this quilt.  I'm so glad I decided to participate in ALYOF -- it's been great accountability to get a bunch of WIP's completed.  And the chance to win prizes is a great motivator as well.

There were a lot of cutting instructions, so I was a bit nervous about the piecing.  But the piecing of the quilt is broken down into six sections -- that makes it manageable and not seem overwhelming.

Thanks to Melissa @ Sew BitterSweet Designs and to Shanna @ Fiber of All Sorts for hosting.

Do you have any goals for October?

  1. Awesome - I like that you will be sticking with all solids as well! I have so many goals it is silly... the most important will be to finish up the quilt for my husband. :)

  2. ooo...that looks like something I would love to do too. Have fun with it!

  3. Looks interesting and great!

  4. Did you win this pattern from ALYOF? That would be very funny if ALYOF caused you to have another WIP! :) I'm looking forward to seeing this come together. It looks so improv-y... but we know it isn't!

  5. This one will be stunning. Good luck reaching your goal.
