 I don’t want you to be stressed out about this challenge, but I do hope to MOTIVATE you.  Finish something, start something, just don’t be overwhelmed by everything – One Thing!

You decide, what’s reasonable for you to get done in a weeks time, and tell me your goal in the commentsNext Monday, I will have a linky and you can link to your blog/flickr post, and show off your met goal!


My goal for the week, is to finish the piece I shared with you last week.  I never had a chance last week, and now I know exactly what I want to do with it!

Brainless sewing :)


For those of you that meet your goal, you will be entered to win a collection of Power Pop fat quarters.  I’ll share a pictures later this week – I need to decide exactly which ones I’m willing to part with!

  1. It will be a great week if I can finish the appliqué on one Lollypop block OR get 6-8 paperweight blocks made. I’m hopeful but the week is young! Who knows what distractions could be lurking. Jan

  2. My goal this week is to make a couple of things for my etsy shop, finish a skirt that is half finished…I am thinking up sooo many things I want to do but I need to be realistic right?!

  3. thanks for the challenge – my goal this week is to do the final 5 wonky house blocks for a swap I’m in – I’ve been procrastinating on them for two weekends now ! oh and I’d love to do my december and january bom blocks that are now overdue as well :)

  4. Woo hoo! My goal this week is to put the binding on my blue gradation quilt. I got it back from the quilter’s a couple weeks ago and I’d like to have it available for use!

  5. My goal for the one thing, one week challenge is to create (start to finish) five baby bibs from my first week of curves class at Stitched in Color. I don’t know how to sew a curve yet, but I will have this mastered this week and make the first handmade items for our bun in the oven (our first child, Due July 25th). Thanks for the motivation Amy!

  6. Let’s see….. This week I would like to finish 2 ticker tape blocks that I am in the middle of. Then I would also like to finish two
    Blocks for my quilt bees. And get a plan together for what I am going to do for two different swaps that I am in!

  7. My goal is to sew the blocks for my 36 block QAL that have been languishing for too long! Thanks for extending a hand on the bandwagon I needed to jump on.

  8. I am hoping to practice and work on some basic sewing methods this week. HSTs. I need to find where a good 1/4″ seam is on my sewing machine. I know it is there somewhere…I will mark it, and then start sewing HSTs until I can almost do it blindfolded..and maybe have enough to start a table runner..this in preparation of having to make 200+ HSTs, ingredients for churn blocks….

  9. With all of the attention on using scraps and postage stamp charms in blogdom this year, I decided to make a mat for the top of my dryer. It has some rust spots and scratches that I keep making worse by leaving detergent bottles and hangers sitting on top. I will be using muslin and 2.5 inch squares from my scraps.

  10. Looking forward to finishing my Made in Cherry quilt top this week and finish sewing the blocks together for my Western Many Scrappy Trips quilt. If its a good week, I may even get the binding made. Thank you for keeping me on track. :)

  11. I need to scallop the border on a sample for my LQS and get the binding on. I dislike doing bias binding so it has been sitting here staring at me. LOL! I need the push to get it done. Thanks!=)

  12. I want to finish my Made in Cherry quilt-a-long mini. I have started the quilting, so this should be possible. But I am also the chair of our cub scout silent auction, and that is Saturday. If I can figure out how to print on the carbonless paper for bid sheets, all should get done!

  13. My goal this week is to do one fun, and maybe messy, thing with my kids every day. I also want to finish my do. Good Stitches bee blocks and mail those off. I like this challenge! Glad I found your blog and this challenge! Thanks!

  14. I would like to finish 2 quilt swap blocks. I have a broken ankle and am finally able to put some weight on it. Hopefully can get into my sewing room and cut and sew.

  15. I don’t usually have several projects going on at the same time (I know, unusual for crafters but I’m an accountant at heart!) but I do right now for various reasons. My goal this week is to finish the hand-stitching on the binding for my first charity quilt and to sew the binding on the quilt (for my brother’s birthday). Doesn’t sound like much but there’s this pesky thing called a full time job…! Thanks for the motivation!

  16. I have kind of lofty goals this week…I need to put the finishing touches on a knitting project today, then learn to do a FBA so I can make my Valentine’s dress and knit a shrug to go over said dress. Then, if I have time, I need to finish the embroidery on a Feb. BOM.

    Hmm…I *might* want to get offline and work on all that…

  17. Thanks for the challenge, Amy. I hope to finish a lap quilt that is I quilted almost half of already. If I get that done, I’d like to get to work on my UFO for February and make a Valentine’s bunting.

  18. My goal is to piece a small wall-hanging quilt. I saw a inspiration piece on Pinterest (go figure…LOL) and I wanted to just play with the concepts from that. Hubby’s supposed to be out of town on business, so it will be like a quilt retreat just for me!

  19. My goal: finish a quilt! In the last challenge, I got my Whimsy quilt basted. Now it needs quilting and binding. This challenge comes at the perfect time. Thanks so much, Amy! :)

  20. I actually have two goals this week. The first goal is to finish peicing the back of the quilt and the top of the quilt and start the quilting on Saturday.
    My second goal is to get the rust cleaned off of my new treadle sewing machine.

  21. My goal is to get the back of my baby quilt pieced together. I’m finishing up the front today. I have a scrappy plan in mind for the back, so it’ll take a little bit of more time than the usual backing.

  22. Since last week was filled with “hurry up and get it done” sewing, I’m taking a break from sewing. However, this week I WILL start organizing my fabric and getting it put away into the dresser I inherited from my kids. I also would like to get the dresser moved against the wall instead of it hanging out in the middle of the room; gotta make room for it first.

  23. I’m a beginning quilter, so I’ve set my sights a little low – I want to get my first quilt back finished, and make up my quilt “sandwich” in preparation for actually quilting it next week!

  24. Yay! I love these challenges, Amy! I need to get a baby quilt done I am making for my cousin’s baby…the shower is Saturday!
    Hope your Monday is shiny…we have some sun here today :)

  25. My goal is to finish a few burp cloths and bibs for my friends very soon to be born baby. And if I get really motivated a couple of special iron-on onesies with pictures of inside jokes, but I would be happy with the bibs and burp cloths to start with.

  26. My daughter wanted a brown and cream linen purse for Christmas. The cut out pieces are laying in my dining room. This project WILL get done this week!

  27. Wow! Everyone has huge goals. I am going to keep mine managable and make a baby quilt top for a charity that gives quilts to children. If I get one top done, will start the top for the second. : )
    Happy Monday everyone!

  28. I would love to finish the top of my Christmas quilt. It shouldn’t take that long I just have to buckle down and get it done. Thanks for the little push and I hope I make it!

  29. I hope to make some Valentine’s Day fabric baskets, or an apron, or pot holders, or embellish some hand towels. I wish I could do it all.
    I have a new sewing machine just begging me to do some sewing.

    Have a great day!


  30. My goal this week is to finish the 4 notebook covers that are in different stages of the work. Started all at the same time, one step at a time but now I just need to get them done so I can give them to my daughters.

  31. My goal this week is to quilt my Christmas quilt. Its either a bit late for last year or early for next year, depending on how you look at it!

  32. I hope that new people can enter. I need to make burp cloths for two new mom’s this week, at least 12. Had a busy week last week and behind on my sewing. Maybe this will help me catch up.

  33. My one thing to finish this week is the thing I have been avoiding – the binding on my sons quilt. It is my first large quilt, it is sewn on by machine, but now i need to finish it. I have a tool to help me with the corners, and once I do that, I can go to town machine sewing it on! That will be a first also. Thank you for the motivation!

  34. My goal for the week will be to finish piecing my crazy quilt–sashing, borders, and all. It’s supposed to be a surprise, and I can’t get my sweetheart to leave the house for any time at all so I don’t know if I’ll succeed. He was supposed to go on a business trip, but it was cancelled yesterday. Valentine’s Day feels awfully close!

  35. STRESSED ?!? Whose STRESSED?!?!? I’m just like a hyperventilating chicken running around in cirlces not able to just zero in and focus on something …… ANYTHING and make some progress on something ….. ANYTHING !!!! (sigh) …..ok ….. deep breaths ….. I can do this …. ummmmmmmmmmm……. a teeny, tiny , teensy , weensy SIMPLE Valentine project …… YES …. that’s all …. just a simple little Valentine project …. that’s my challenge plan ….. ok …. yep ….. I’m gonna try and stay focused !

  36. I’m taking an online Curves course and have 3 projects to tackle this week! I’m hoping to get all three completed but will definitely have at least one done from start to finish for Monday!
