OMG June Goal

Well, I'm so out of OMG practice that when I met my goal last month, I totally forgot to linkup my finish. Oops. Onward...

This month's goal is a two-fer. My Island Batik project challenge is to try something new. I've chosen the product Fabric Magic by Pellon as my something new. A few weeks ago I looked at my "want to make" list and had significantly more on the list that time would allow in my life. I had to eliminate some fun "wants" like finishing the Trinket quilt top by the sew along deadline (you can see all my blocks on Instagram), and participating in the Riley Blake quilt challenge. I was nearing the realization that I would have to skip participating in the Pantone Quilt Challenge (which would be a bummer after participating in 2017 and 2018) when I realized that I could double dip with my Island Batik project. This year's Pantone color of the year is Living Coral. I've pulled these three fabrics (Tangy, Flame, and Peach) to start with (though I imagine I will add other colors). I also have some improv curves in mind. I'm giving myself a week to get it done. :-)

P.S. For anyone still wanting to participate in the Pantone Quilt Challenge, I shared some Living Coral color palettes.

I'm linking up to the June OMG goal setting party. Someone remind me to linkup my finish when I post it. ;-)

      Thanks Anja. A friend used it on her quilt recently. I'm not sure yet exactly how it works, but it shrivels up the fabric to be textured. Fingers crossed!

      Thanks, Nancy. I'm itching to get started. Organizing the studio has taken priority. :-)

    I hate when I do that! This is a great fabric pull for the challenge! It will be fun to see what you do with the textured fabric. Good luck!
