My friend and fellow CI, Karen Overton, is also known as The Quilt Rambler. She has taken up the One Monthly Goal challenge from Elm Street Quilts and I have decided to follow her lead. (You can read Karen's goals here.) At this point, there are over 50 bloggers that have taken up this challenge. (You can see them at the One Monthly Goal January link up here.)
To be included, one must blog one monthly goal. In this post I will describe 4 goals that I have for the month. The one for this challenge is to layer and quilt my version of Bread & Butter Table Runner. Bread & Butter Table Runner is a marvelous pattern from Studio 180 Designs that uses the Tucker Trimmer I. My version uses William Morris 2017 fabric that I bought at Four Pines Quilting in Claremont, NH.
My second goal is to prepare and teach my first Tucker University class at Four Pines on January 20th. If you are interested, click here to register online with Four Pines. In this class, I will teach how to use the Tucker Trimmer I for making half square triangles, quarter square triangles, combination units and shaded four patches. All of these can be made in 11 different sizes using the single tool. For the class you need the Tucker Trimmer I, Quilter's Magic Wand, Shaded Four Patch technique sheet and the Tucker Trimmer I design sheet. These items can be purchased at the class if you don't already own them.
My third goal is to bind four quilts that I will be donating to my guild's Giraffe Closet. I will be posting pictures as I get each one of them finished so you can admire my handiwork. (Big grin!)
My 4th and final goal is actually one for the entire year. I will be trying to blog once every week. I would like to post every Monday but any day within a week will work for me. Hopefully, you'll hear from me again next Monday. Until then, take care!
