    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

    This year's goal was to get healthy. Quilting and the friends I've made through quilting have helped me do that.
    I also bought a 10' quilting frame and a 11" machine to put on it.
    That started a whole new project. Learning how to use it.
    I've done about a dozen quilts on it now, from practise swatches to crib quilts to queen size. And the technique is getting better.
    I've also been making some purses and bags.
    My goal for 2011 is to continue to improve my "midarm" technique and start doing more quilts for those of us who 'quilt by chequebook."
    I also want to finish making a quilt for each of my nieces and nephews and great nieces, and great nephews, before I start having grandchildren. LOL, my son is 10!!

    My goal is to do the quilting on the tops I completed in 2010. For me, this is a huge leap and I'm scared to death. Not sure why but I definately have a mental block and hesitate to start.

    I want to make a quilt for myself. I have made them for everyone else, and I want one. I am embarrassed to say that I still have a Walmart store comforter on my bed :roll: .
    I would also like to do more applique. I haven't done much of it and need to get some good practice in this year.

    In 2011 I would like to finish at least 3 quilts that I have tops for. I would also like to find that intricate, challenging, once in a lifetime quilt that will take me a long time to make - I think I'm ready for that. Until I find that quilt to work on, I'll continue happily quilting along on whatever strikes my fancy!

    I would like to get on with restoring my beautiful treadle I bought a little while ago (kitchen reno's got in the way).
    Quilts....T-shirt quilt for my stepson (have all the T's already), OBW, random/grab/scrappy for our bed (was inspired by Rosy's wonderful creation), cat quilt (have a cool pattern already) and some extras as I would like to stockpile a few and maybe try and sell them....not sure about this bit, but each quilt I make is an improvement and people seem to like my quilts...anyway, we shall see....oh and keep working on the EPP Grandmother's Garden...maybe 2011 will see it done and dusted.

    Going to start a D9P tomorrow and will be trying out a OBW after the holidays!! Excited about both projects - have been mulling over my color placement for the D9p and have finally got it planned out in my head. Tomorrow is cutting day-yay!! After I finish these two projects who know what will come next - maybe I will brave the Judy Neimeyer paper pieced Hunters Star pattern that I bought 4 years ago. With the help of the tuts on this board I may just be brave enough to try it!

    I have one of those 'Happy Daisies' in the works and just printed off the beginning instructions for a scrappy mystery quilt that was just talked about on here. I'm itching to get started but I'm heavily involved with my GDs' Christmas sewing projects right now.

    Same here. It is actually written on a paper that I keep adding to. BUT for 2011, I DO have a fabric for OBW quilt, most fabrics for a queen size (my first) bargello for my bed, a pineapple star and a couple of wall hanging that are already in kits that I put together. So here you go five or six quilts that are ready to go, I just need to sit down and start!

    I am looking forward to it!
