I missed last month’s One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts, I honestly don’t know where March went and here it is April! And what a fabulous month this is going to be! So many wonderful things planned I hope you will join me!
My goals are quilt related but not necessarily making a quilt…what?
Yes, it’s going to be more of a rambling month with some roaring reporting going on by my sidekick, Little Lion Judah as The Quilt Rambler is on the road, in the air, on the air, and all around social media this month.
Mark your calendar and join me for some of these goals and goal reporting!
It’s All About The Blog, No Trouble
“it’s all about the base, no treble” Okay, so perhaps everything isn’t a song after all, but I bet you are humming it (grin).
First goal is to reach 500+ subscribers to The Quilt Rambler Blog by midnight 4/3/18 – if you have found me in blog land somewhere, won’t you be kind enough to find that little button on the right hand side of the screen and take a chance on me (“take a chance on me” – yep – remember that song from Momma Mia!)
Some of the benefits of having a subscription, besides not missing a single ramble, is the upcoming blogs planned for this month! Which is part of the goal of increased subscribers. Here are a few things you have to look forward to: a Blog hop with Island Batik’s City Culture 2 collection, the Blog hop with Island Batik’s Northern Woods collection, the adventures of Little Lion Judah and company on two road trips (details below) and the coverage of a new quilt shops grand opening! Now doesn’t that just make you want to jump over to the right-hand column, enter your email address and hit that subscribe button! Don’t be confused, this photo doesn’t do it for you – you have to hit the actual button in the sidebar! Go ahead, you know you want to!
Upcoming Road Trip Goals
I’m super excited to be vending at the Beaumont Golden Triangle Quilt Guild Show April 13-14. I will be demonstrating Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design tools and techniques in The Quilt Rambler booth #143. In addition to all of Deb’s products, I will also have Island Batik fabrics and fabric kits available for purchase.
Immediately after this fun road trip, I will be taking to the air to join Deb Tucker and company on the road to Paducah! I will be assisting in her booth at the AQS show and can hardly wait! Paducah has been on my bucket list for years! Are you attending? If so, then you will find me in the Studio 180 Design booth and I’d love it if you stopped by to say hi!
But Wait, There’s More!
Immediately after Paducah, I will be ON THE AIR or at least on a podcast with none other than Pat Sloan herself! I am over the moon excited about this and can’t begin to imagine being interviewed by her. I just hope I can fill up my allotted 12-minute session (grin). Won’t you join me for this!
Did you think I wasn’t going to have time to sew this month? Well, here’s the real challenge – I’ve got my idea floating around in my head and by the end of the month I have great plans to share with you my Island Batik Ambassador project. I can’t wait to cut up some fabric and sew!
Oh, and somewhere in between all this, I will share updates on our reconstruction Post-Hurricane Harvey. So eager to get back into the REAL studio, not to mention the rest of the house! Yep, it’s going to be an epic month!
So if you haven’t subscribed to The Quilt Rambler blog I hope I’ve given you something to consider as I look forward to sharing my April happenings! A rambler needs an audience after all and it’s a whole lot more fun to share the journey with others! Speaking of others, be sure and check out those who have linked up with Elm Street Quilt’s One Monthly Goal! I’ve been introduced to some great bloggers and Instagram quilters through this project!
This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, reminding you to take time to enjoy the journey and get off the beaten path every now and then to enjoy the flowers!
