One Monthly Goal Success!

I succeeded on my January OMG! 
60+ blocks later I have enough blocks to make a twin size quilt for the guest bedroom. These blocks have 21 pieces in them.  And, in case you are wondering, I will not be making this same quilt for the second twin bed in the room!

I was able to make or finish over 30 log cabin blocks this month.  And then, since I was on a roll, I went ahead and rebuilt them.  If you are interested in how to do this check out Elaine's blog Elaine Adair Pieces. You can find her directions under Tutorial - Scrappy Rebuilt Log Cabin. I think these blocks are going to take a short recess and then I'll get busy on making them into a quilt.  I still need to trim them all to the same size and then work on layouts.  

Each block has 21 pieces in it.  Needless to say, I ran out of fabric and was begging off of the gals at retreat.  Sharon is represented by several fabrics and Nancy found one piece in her stuff.  Thanks friends.  

So the sad part about this is I some how twisted 4 blocks the wrong way so they can't be used on the front -- but maybe on the back.  

That's it for me today.  Go see what the rest of the gang finished at Elm Street quilts.  Also check out Needle and Thread Thursday and Midweek Makers.

Now to decide what is going to be my next One Monthly Goal! 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. Oooh, I love these black and white beauties! Congratulations on meeting your January goal. Glad that your quilting buddies came through with some fabric for the blocks.

  2. What cool blocks! I'm off to check out the tutorial. Thanks for the link!

  3. Love your blocks. I've always wanted to make one of those ever since I read her first blog post about them. Great work.

  4. These blocks are such fun! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!

  5. Yay for finishing your goal!!! That is such an interesting block. Can't wait to see the finish, but I guess I will wait since I have no control over it. LOL!
