It's April OMG!

It's time to set a goal for April.  One Monthly Goal is hosted by Heidi @ Red Letter Quilts.


I finished this quilt top back in January.  But Strip Twist has been hanging around my sewing room because I had no clue how to quilt it.  Procrastination time is over -- my April OMG is to quilt this.


And because I need motivation to get it quilted and to continue to try new things,  I'm going to be a #BraveQuilter and link up with Julie @ Pink Doxies -- I'm going to do dot-to-dot quilting.  There's no turning back now that I've spoken it into the universe.


I recently watched Angela Walters: Dot to Dot Quilting (this is an affiliate link whereby I receive a small commission if you purchase the class).  This is a great class, and I'm no longer afraid to try new FMQ motifs (okay maybe still a little bit afraid, but not so afraid not to try new things).  I'm surprised at how motivated I was to jump in after watching this class.  Now to muster that same motivation and courage to get this one quilted.

Will you be a #BraveQuilter this month?

  6. I'm out here cheering you on, too! Yes, speaking it into the Universe has that power of declaring intent. I also know AW is an amazing instructor, and can't wait to see her instruction come to life in your quilt.

  9. Oh I'm so where you are with quilting! Flimsies hang around my studio for months as I either ignore them or actively think about a quilting plan. Even though I'm not great at machine quilting I find that once I have a plan I can do it and you can too! I've heard Angela is a great teacher and I'm fascinated by her dot-to-dot method. It just makes sense! So go for it girlfriend and let's be brave together!
