October One Monthly Goal

It's the first day of October.  Just 30 days to Halloween, 55 days to Thanksgiving, 85 days to Christmas and 92 days to finish all your 2021 goals!  I'm probably not going to reach my goal on quilt finishes for 2021, but maybe with the help of this month's One Monthly Goal, I'll be one step closer to doing better next year. 

Cabins and Fans just needs a few more border strips added to be a finished flimsy. 

Cabins and Fans:  Self designed

The last green border is pinned on, I just need to get back to the sewing room to stitch it down, measure the quilt again and cut the next two side borders from the black strips already assembled.  That should definitely be doable.  Hopefully I can also get the backing pieced. I've already pulled something from the stash for that purpose. 

This is an older Connecting Threads line that I ordered significant yardage of when it went on sale.  

So it should be an easy OMG right? Just finish the borders and make the backing.  Well, maybe not.  There's a family wedding this month and other stuff going on at work.  So we'll see.  

Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the October One Monthly Goal.

That purple fabric is such a rich color. It will look wonderful. Have a great weekend!

The backing looks perfect for the quilt. I hope you can easily get your OMG complete and enjoy the family wedding and more. :)

I really love that pattern. Well done. Would you be annoyed if I made something similar?
