Number 1 on my list is finish old projects. But of course I want to start new ones, too. So I'm going to try to finish one old project for every new project I take on. Some of my old projects I want to finish include:
Alpine Girls Quilt Group 2009 Turning Twenty Years quilt is one of the first on my list. Oh, I love the fabrics and colors in this quilt and using blocks from my friends will make a good keepsake.This Sunbonnet Sue Applique with Lori Holt's applique method tugs at my sleeve to finish. How cute is that little dog above! I love the fabrics in this one, too. Of course.
I have oodles of orphan blocks I want to incorporate into one quilt or several different little projects.
I started this vintage sheet quilt last year. I don't think I even showed it on the blog . I am ashamed that I started and stopped it within such a short period of time last summer.This quilt is nearly done and here it sits! Jacquie gave me the centers for the blocks in this strawberry quilt. I can't believe I let other projects distract me from it. I have to finish this and have it quilted and bound before early summer strawberry season comes again.
And using my overflowing stash is certainly #2 on my list of quilting goals. I have a really lovely stash and my fabrics are begging to be picked and sewn. I want to make a tiny dent in the stash this year. But I love what Brenda says about her stash. And I plan on echoing what she wrote to me: "I refuse to feel guilty about buying fabric so am hoping that having a target for the end of the year will make me look to see what I have before automatically buying more." Isn't that great advice?
Now I gotta get moving!
