December OMG 2018 Goal

Funny how what goes around comes around.

For my December OMG, I decided to focus on a UFO called The Case of the Secret Garden.

The Case of the Secret Garden

I dug through the blog to see when I last worked on this project.  It appears it was also my goal for December OMG 2017.  Hmmmmmm.

The Case of the Secret Garden

If you click on the links above, you can find links to the beginning of this project, and each clue that I worked on it, as well as find where it originated on Linda Franz’ website, Inklingo.  Linda began this enjoyable mystery in the year 2013.

So, why did I wad this project up in a corner?

Partly because I went through a tough time (why do I throw my creativity aside when I need it the most…another mystery), and partly because I changed my mind about my fabric choices.

I like the fabric choices.  I don’t like the fabric choices.  I like the fabric choices.  I can’t stand the fabric choices.

Oh brother!

The Case of the Secret Garden

But then, my Mom and a couple of sisters visited for Thanksgiving.  One of my sisters said, “I really like this!”

The Case of the Secret Garden

Nothing like a little positive motivation!

So this top is pin basted, and I am in the process of machine quilting it.

I hope to complete the quilting, of course, but realistically, because it is December, and the busiest time of the year, my goal is to complete half of the machine quilting.

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal (OMG). Click on the link and see the other goals for December!  Maybe you would like to add a goal!

    Yay Yay Yay – a resurrected project! I am thrilled that you are finishing it and you will be too! It is striking.


    • I am driven to get this resurrected project to the finish line! Quilting makes the quilt…so they say. I hope that is the case for this one! 🙂 Thank you!


  5. Oh so pretty! You will get it finished! Mountmellick is in the last stages! Just decided on what to finish it with – it is a shorter version than the original! I am tired of seeing it!


  6. Time flies. That’s really lovely.
