    I've only been on this forum since September and I think I have enough inspiration for a hundred or more years of quilting. My husband was talking to me today and said, "So, what are you planning on making in 2011 that you've been inspired to try from your board?"

    Here are my MUST try projects:
    2 Colored Diamonds like this: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-77415-1.htm
    Winding Ways: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-79027-1.htm
    Swish Bargello: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-45289-1.htm
    Hickory Nut Blocks: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-27345-1.htm I already have the templates!
    A yoyo quilt
    Magic Pinwheels: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-57130-1.htm
    3D Pinwheels
    and so many more!




    What are yours? Just curious!

    I want to try them all! Deciding where to start is my biggest problem next to getting off this site and sewing!

    I want to do a bargello but also a mosaic from the Bella Bella book, the first quilt you have listed here I had to bookmark for future reference, and I'm not sure what else yet. I'd like to also quilt the 30+ Ladies in Waiting (tops waiting to be sandwiched and quilted) that are sitting upstairs and finish putting together my Attic Windows, Mariner's Compass, and a couple of other UFOs. I've decided in 2011 I'm going to take several quilts that the blocks are done but not set together and make them into table runners for a craft sale next November. Most of them are BOM's that I got tired of before I finished them. I've discovered that taking 6 months to a year to get all my blocks together bores me to tears so I'm not doing that this year. I guess my main goal for 2011 is to finish some of the things I've started so that I can venture into new territory.

    My goal for 2011 is to use up my stash and *try* to not purchase on a whim. I know others have been doing it for a while...but I Must start!

    My other goal for 2011 is to FINISH the projects I already have started...that should take me 2 years :(

    Well...in 2010, one of my goals was to finish several of my UFOs. I did get 3 quilts finished along with a few other things. I would have to say that I want to make a quilt for our bed...queen sized...it is in shades of pink, cream and brown...all half-square triangles. I have had the fabric for about 4 years now. I hope to get started on it during Christmas vacation from school.

    I have fabrics picked for three definite quilts -
    a b/w/r Bento Box for ME - using Connecting Threads "After Hours" collection and a few throw ins from my stash.
    an appliqued "Airborne" quilt for my husband - no definite pattern yet
    a space ship/aliens quilt for my son - no definite pattern yet

    I've started collecting fabrics for a bed quilt for my daughter...still no clue what I'm going to do with it - I want bright and fun and girly...

    I have a friend paying me to make her a quilt in the new year for her daughter's toddler bed - we're still working out the details, but we're leaning towards the "Cake" pattern from the Moda bakeshop, using Moda's "Happy" collection

    I'm planning personalized stockings for my whole family

    I really want to try a OBW and have some beautiful fabrics to try it with.

    That's all...for the moment. It may well take me all year. :lol:

    Winding Ways and Magic Pinwheels are two I want to try. I've been trying almost every tutorial on this board. I just want to know how to make all those beautiful blocks. I made most of my larger quilts this year, so next year is using my stash and making wall hanging sizes. I might have to take all my pictures down to hang these. But am also working on a sampler day bed cover. This place is addicting. Beware!!!!

    In 2011 I want to make a bargello queen sized.

    Seeing all those wonderful bargellos got me even more inspired.

    I also want to make more time for myself, so I'm able to quilt more.

    Hey, not to brag, but, I don't start anything new, until my recent project is done. Most ufo's has been two.

    I'm proud of this :P
