Heidi of Red Letter Quilts kicked this idea off in January of 2016. Our current hostess, Patty of Elm Street Quilts took over in November of 2016. I can't say that the One Monthly Goal has worked miracles on my ability to finish projects, but it has helped me realize the importance of prioritization in the sewing room. Committing to OMG has also helped me get past some of my typical stall points. Not having a final design and prepping a quilt to send off for quilting are my two biggies.
So what to pick for the August OMG? I've made good progress on the Christmas Angels and Scrappy Coffee Cups over the last couple of months. Of those two projects, Scrappy Coffee Cups is the farthest along.

All the sashing is sewn on, but the bottom three rows need to be sewn together than attached to the top half. This quilt has 4 borders planned and those always take longer than I expect. Looking at what's on the calendar for August, getting this project to the finished flimsy stage is definitely doable. So that's the goal for August.
Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the August One Monthly Goal.
