April Goal Complete

My OMG (One Monthly Goal) for April was to quilt and bind this Blue and White on point Mile a Minute quilt, and it is done.  A full size quilt measuring 88 x 102 inches. 

I hurried home from work to take the picture while the sun was still out and there was a nice patch of snow for the background, and you can see I have a few clips holding down the binding.  Once I finished supper I sat down and finished hand sewing the binding. 

My daughter picked the Entangle pantograph by Hermione Agee, she thought the design was a nice compliment to the on point blocks, I have to agree. 

I used larger pieces from my stash to piece the back, the binding is patchy as well.  It feels good to use fabric that have, rather than buying more, I honestly can see my stash shrinking (just a little). 

You can see Entangle better on this bit of the back. 

 I’m thankful to ElmStreet Quilts for hosting this OMG, as it keeps me on track with finishing the many projects I have on the go.

When you love what you have you have everything you need.

Blue and White Mile a Minute OMG

Another month and with it a goal to complete another quilt.  My One Monthly Goal (OMG) for April will be to quilt and bind this Blue and White on point Mile a Minute quilt. 
Completing this quilt top was my goal for October 2018, and you can see the blog post here.  I think it is the oldest quilt in my project book, so I would like to get it done as I've nearly completed all the quilts in the book and I am ready to move on to new ‘keeping track of projects’ book.

I am going to piece the back out of the larger pieces in my blue collection, to helpfully whittle down this stash a bit. 
Come back at the end of April to see how I've quilted it.  I’m linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal April Link-up.
