Please only link up if you posted a goal in the comments last week.

As for me?  I did get my Dresden Plates quilted, I even attached the binding, but I stopped there, still need to tack it down.  What do you think?

I’m super excited about it, and can’t wait to send it off to my partner.  Deadline is in September, so I have plenty of time.

You have 24 hours to include your link, tomorrow I will up date this post with the winner of the beautiful charm pack, from Piece N Quilt!

Thanks so much for playing with me, we will do the same thing again next month.

    Hi Amy! Love your colorful Dresden! So unique! I love all the colors. I finished my challenge. The quilt top is finished and ready to go to the quilter if I choose to send it out to be quilted. Do you know a good quilter?

    Thanks for the challenge! I appreciate it!

    Yay! I finished cutting out all the pieces needed for my quilt-top. Thanks for this challenge! I work best under some moderate pressure : )

    I’ve got mine linked, but my blog is doing something weird and not allowing me to permalink it right now. So, I just had to link my blog. Hopefully it will fix soon. Your dresden looks so nice and colorful!

    Love the Dresden!

    I lugged all 5 boys to the fabric store yesterday to get more quilt batting so I am happy to say that I completed the challenge. The top and back are all put together and quilted…hooray! Thanks so much for offering this challenge, it really motivated me! I don’t have a blog so I won’t be able to link you to the pics, would like for me to post them on FB and tag you?

    I tried adding your button to my blog and it does not work for me. I love your Dresden for DQS9. I wish I had listed red and purple in my likes… LOL

    Amy this was such a great motivator for me! Just what I needed!! Thank you so much and your Dresden plate is beautiful!

    This was great! Apparently accountability and deadlines are the only things I respond to. I’m already working on my goal for this week!

    Great Challenge this week Amy! I was able to complete my challenge of finishing my Mini Margaret Purse! I have started on another goal, getting the top of my doll quilt done! While I am not in any swap for it, I want to complete it to put on my kitchen table!! Thanks for the challenge and the chance to win a charm pack!!

    Thanks for the focus Amy, I not only got my quilt top pieced but got it quilted and the binding sewn on too! I love your dresden plates, it’s wonderful!

    I just love your dresden plate it is such beautiful colors and so different from any I have seen. I am sure your partner will love it I would.I did start a little bag I have wanted to do and I just have to put handle on but I am not entering the contest because I don’t have a blog to link to.

    I met my goal for week one…hooray! I needed this little kick in the pants to finish up the hand quilting on this quilt for our grandson, Nolan, who is due next month! I love how it turned out…lots of work but worth it! Thanks, Amy, for this “Challenge Week”!

    Wow, I love how your dresden plates quilt turned out. It’s fabulous.

    Your dresden plate is beautiful!

    I met my goal – finishing that little skirt. I didn’t have a lot left, but I had pretty much zero motivation!

    Thank you Amy! I got my Bee Blocks done. Having a week deadline really helped. I love your Dresden plate. I keep wishing I was your partner.

    Yay! Got my challenges done! I love your dresden plate.

    (I can’t get the OTOW button link to work, Amy – it shows up as just a sad little empty box).

    Guess I got in on this too late in the week. I only just posted two days ago, and I didn’t even look at my project. I’ll post again next week to meet my challenge. I like this game.

    Your quilt is gorgeous.

  21. Jeanne July 27, 2010 at 1:23 pm - Reply

    I finished! I finished! And, I’ve even moved on to quilting my top.

  22. Linda in Calif. July 27, 2010 at 1:25 pm - Reply

    I had a blast finishing piecing this quilt and I’m linked up. I didn’t want to sew as my mom-in-law is visiting. But I did anyway. I sewed at the dining room table while she sat and ate (she is a very slow eater) Who knew eating and sewing could be so much fun! Your project is just beautiful Amy. Thanks for the give-a-way. (Sure hope I win!)

    I met my goal and then some. Yay for vacation time!

    I say this on Flickr and it’s so pretty and bright. Your partner will be so lucky to receive this.

    Thanks for the little extra motivation to get into my sewing room this week! The weather has been so warm, I avoid the upstairs when I can, which means the sewing room…

    Your dresden quilt looks great! I finished up my circle quilt– thanks for the motivation!

    Hooray we all did it!!! I finished my Cross-stitch I have posted the pictures on Flicker….Lucy

    Wow, I love how this quilt turned out. It is sad that you can’t keep it. It would be awesome if you could just look at it and touch it everyday because I think it would make you smile.

    The Dresden plate is beautiful! I actually did meet my goal for the week, so thanks for the motivation. I especially needed it this past week. :)

    Amy, thank you so much for this challenge – it sure got me going! And I hope to be back next month (though it may collide with my vacation, we’ll see)!
    I absolutely love your Dresden Plate: the colors & setting are beautiful.

    Your Dresden quilt looks so bright and happy! Great job on meeting your goal! I’m happy to say that I actually met my goal too, and am feeling extra proud of myself. There are now prairie points attached to my project. Woot!

    I just want to say Thank You Amy for starting this challenge. Even though I didn’t “finish” my goal, it is almost finished. I too need a moderate amount of “pressure” to get my butt in gear :)

    Your dresden plate is gorgeous Amy!

    Thanks for doing this! I finished a quilt reclamation that had been sitting in a sack on my shelf since January!! You rock, Amy!!

    It looks darling Amy!

    I got so close! I actually got as far as you did with your dresden plates :) Alas, my goal was to have it totally finished, so I fell just shy of it. There’s always next month!

    Shoot I just went to upload my link but you’re still on Utah time so I mistakenly thought I had a little longer. Anyways here is the link to my post if you want to check it out just for fun. Thanks for the challenge!

    Oh no! I wasn’t receiving feed from your new site properly and missed the entry deadline (although for the record – I did complete my project on Saturday). However – the good news is that I did complete my quilt top – yeah for me! And thank you so much for the insporation to do so. Can’t wait to play again.

    p.s. You can see this lovely top at my blog: :)

    Must’ve missed the linky…my kids came home from 2 weeks with their grandparents yesterday, so no internet time for me:) I did complete my goals though. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I didn’t reach my goal…:(. Everything always takes me so much longer than I want it to! I wanted to put together a quilt top–I got half of it cut out. It’s been a productive week, but just not so much for my quilt.
    Lots of people finished so many things!!

  42. Tove July 28, 2010 at 10:26 am - Reply

    Can’t bleieve I forgot to link up my stuff! grr! It’s ok because the challegned inspired me to finish up getting caught up and work on my sons quilt which I did both!
    Good luck to whoever wins the charm pack.

  43. Katie July 28, 2010 at 11:17 am - Reply

    Okay, I think I’m through pinching myself so I can use my fingers to type and say THANK YOU! I honestly took this challenge to get myself motivated, never believing for one second I’d win anything (I rarely do…), but I did! This is my second charm pack win this year – maybe things are turning around for me? (Or maybe I should just take the win and be quiet and hope fate doesn’t notice?)

    I was a day late, but got my quilt top done! Thanks so much for the motivation, it’s just what I needed. Be posting the Crooked Coins tutorial soon!
    LOVE your Dresden Plate!

    Congrats Katie!!! you will have to let us know what you do with your charm pack!! I am always curious what people create with the stuff they win.
