    I plan on making a granddaughter's quilt for HS graduation, a scrap quilt, a few UFO quilts, and try and use my stash.

    2) piece the Fractured Crystal quilt I bought fabric for several years ago
    3) take a long arm class to quilt the 2 quilts above. I've run my first and last king size quilt through a sewing machine to quilt it. I often tell my wife that you need the right tool for the job- for quilting, that is a long arm, not a sewing machine!
    4) get proficient using EQ7

    BTW - some acronyms are commonly used that I'm not sure what they are. And I work in Aerospace where there are lots of TLAs!
    UFO - unfinished object?
    WIP - work in progress?
    If so, when does a WIP become a UFO?...

    And now that all these goals are being set, how does the accountability happen?
    A WIP is a UFO when the layer of dust on it is measurable by a quilting ruler???

    I want to just get back the desire to get to my quiltroom again. All the projects,fabric,books,patterns and no get up and go. Any suggestions for that? I have so many UFO's of my mom who passed 03/21/2009 to finish for my siblings.
    Do I have God = Charity, Love, Faith ?

    I think you need to start something for you and then perhaps get started on some of your mom's UFOs.

    At first I didn't think I really had any goals....I thought about the fabric moratorium and really considered I would be able to do it...then decided that not really, it didn't fit with my needs.

    So here is what I've decided...
    I will stash dive first, then buy what I need to fill it out.
    I will start a new project every month (I joined a 2013 NewFO challenge)
    I will learn a new technique (I'm going to sign up for the french braid class in our LQS's winter session).
    This Christmas (2013) will be as homemade as I can possibly make it (friends and family watch out!!!).
    I have about 6 full size quilt tops to quilt, I will do at least two of them. (doable goal)

    That's all I can manage resolution wise.

    I want to thank everyone who responded to this post. I think sharing goals is important and may help us stay with them. Good luck to everyone. Have fun.

    This year I want to reduce some of my leftovers and not always use new fabric. I have so much stripes and pieces from other projects and want to use a part of them for mug rugs, tapel toppers and other little somethings.
