If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll know that each year on my birthday, I choose a new project to tackle in the upcoming year. In the past, I’ve done a hexagon-a-day quilt and an improv block quilt. This year, I decided to do something a little out of the box.
I was inspired for this project by Instagram personality Brit Morin, who in 2018 did a “Give It a Week” challenge. Each week, she conquered a different challenge — everything from going sugar-free to learning how to play guitar. I thought it would be fun to recreate that challenge with things on my quilting bucket list. But instead of a week like she did, I thought a month was a better time commitment for some of the complicated quilting techniques I may be taking on!
Each month, starting with October (my birthday month), I’ll tackle a new quilting challenge. I’ve made a preliminary list, but won’t commit to anything until that month, so I can choose something I’m feeling excited and passionate about. I’ll spend the month learning, practicing, reading, taking classes, and anything else I need to do to truly learn and be immersed in the quilting technique. At the end of the month, I’ll report back on what I learned, what products worked for me, and any other fun tidbits! (I’ll also be updating everyone on Instagram, so if you don’t follow me yet, join me there!)
I’ll update soon on what I’ve chosen for Month #1 of Give It a Month. If you have any suggestions for me, let me know in the comments!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour”,
