A Stroll in the Garden

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anais Nin

 

“What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome. Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our starts the flowers of the heaven.”
– A.J. Balfour

July OMG 2018

Time to be bold and announce my new goal for July.  

I’m not really going to be all that bold this month, since I am making time for family and sunny days!

I will be piecing three 5 inch blocks for the Squared Away Sampler project.  You can see my progress so far this year by clicking here.

My next goal for the month is to make progress on my President’s book.  Nope, not the President of the United States, but blocks that were given to me for serving my term as a quilt guild president.

I left off turning the blocks into pages for a fabric memory book that I can use for a keepsake.  You can see that post from one year ago here.  (It is a coincidence that I worked on this project in July last year, and have chosen it as my project for July this year.)

President's Blocks

I believe I have 36 pages to quilt.  They shouldn’t take long, and they wouldn’t, if it was winter and I could stay in my cozy home all day long (which I can’t because of the day job).  But it is summer, and the sunshine calls, so I am making this easy on myself.  I am going to quilt six pages for the month.

Speaking of sunshine, there will be time for strolling in the garden!

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts OMG (One Monthly Goal), where goals are met, one month at a time, and there is encouragement to keep on keepin’ on.
