OMG July Goal

Folks... I didn't get it done. I worked on it. And I'm resolved to celebrate the small amount of progress. But my July One Monthly Goal is a repeat of my June Goal. Except I know this month a quilt finish just isn't gonna happen. So my little goal for July will be to make progress quilting the Twin Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt. In July I'd like to add 20 spirals of quilting. The spirals measure about 5" x 6" to 7" x 8" so this would be a considerable amount of progress... especially taking into account the Summer vacation schedule and other quilt related deadlines.

I'm free motion quilting these large rounded corner rectangular spirals that turn into oval spirals in the middle with Aurifil 50wt Marrakesh Variegated #3817. I like the combination of precision in the spacing and the freedom of the organic spirals in the middle. I first used this motif on a smaller version of this Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt, inspired by Cynthia's quilting. I love it on the smaller version, but I have to say, as I'm chipping away at quilting this twin sized quilt, I really wish I'd picked a less dense motif. My lines are about a half inch apart.

Wish me luck!

      Thank you, Patty! I'm sticking with this personal goal until it's done. It may be numerous more OMGs of work. ;-)

      Thank you, Yvonne. It's probably still a bit of a stretch with my other commitments, but it is in the realm of possible. ;-)

    You do have pretty full plate these days - and a house renovation. Do what you can and you can even do every other, finish and go back to it. It has been done before 😉.
