    I have my normal resolutions~be more patient and lose some more weight, but I also have quilting resolutions for the New Year. I'm going to plan on at least a half hour of quilting with my daughters each day they want to quilt. I wanted to learn sewing as a child but everyone in my family who knew how to sew was always just too busy to teach me so I want to nourish my girls' desire to learn. I also want to promise myself to try at least one new technique each month. What are your Quilting New Year's Resolutions?

    Work on one gift a month and maybe give it away when it's done instead of waiting for a holiday or birthday. Finish one UFO/WIP a month. Get into the sewing space more often instead of just looking at it longingly as I walk by. Hey, these all tie in together!

    I would like to make five quilts that are twin size or bigger. The first two will be for me, I badly need them. I want to learn to make more complicated quilts. I want to learn to do machine quilting using those designs

    clean my sewing room and keep it clean. Use more of my stash. Get my tops quilted. I would love to teach my girls but they aren't really interested yet.

    Keep working on my many projects, aiming to finish some and clear space for new ideas.

    Continue with the fabric moratorium on this board (no fabric purchases until end of November, except as needed for works in progress).

    Have fun and PLAY!!! Not that I need a resolution for that, lol...

    Clean and finish a sewing room. Also I would love to build a large stash of fabric. To learn several new techniques to share with the kids in my 4-H sewing class.

    I've thought of another. My Gram decided to stop quilting about a year ago so she gave me her UFO's and told me to toss them if I didn't want them but I'm sentimental and have decided to work on them with my girls, creating some three-generation quilts so my goal for this year is to finish them.

    I made a resolution not to make any resolutions because i don't seem to keep them anyway. However it is my grand intention to finish some of my UFO's. Goodness knows I have plenty of them. I sent out 13 crocheted afghans for Christmas and gave lots of Christmas stockings and Santa scarves so my gift cupboard is pretty bare now. Always try to keep a few things on hand for last minute gifts. I've just had cataract surgery and will need new glasses before I can see very well so everything is kinda on hold right now. But soon!

    I'm going to try to use more of my stash, it's getting too big to handle.

    To have some fun each day whether it be quilting or sitting with my DGD and just chatting. She likes to draw so we can sit while she draws and I sew.....sometimes we both sew but she has a lot of homework when school is in session. So that comes first. I think to just enjoy more of each day.

    Make more charity quilts to support our millitary. Going hand in hand with that collecting a stash of patriotic colored fabrics to make the quilts to be donated. Make some quilts that I really want to do. Relax with the actual quilting and do less intriqued. Have fun quilting! Eventhough I have always donated quilts I really want to increase the amount I am doing.
