    I must finish a patriotic quilt for my husbands military reunion. I signed up for a Craftsy's Art Quilting: Pictorial Technique, debating on ordering a kit from Connecting Threads - Floating Stars, finished tops that need quilting - flip flop, delectable mountain, Ohio star variation two colored quilt, and a flannel. Wow!!! I need to get started. I'm sure as the year progresses there will be more request and things that I can't pass up.

    I have way too many ideas swirling around in my head. I am trying to control them so I don't start too many projects and end up with a ton more UFO's. One goal is to finish my UFO's. I have a new rule for myself this year that I can't start a new project until I finish 2 UFO's. I am doing the stash buster train ride quilt on here. My DD ia pregnant and i need to make a baby quilt. I have a bargello to make called Bright Nights Bargello by Becky Botello. I have all 24 fabrics for it but haven't started. I also want to do a Judy Neimeyer quilt probably her new Mariners Compass one. I have a quilt to make for my nephew he is paying me to make a Tardis quilt (had to look up what that is). This is enough to keep me busy all year but I am sure I will start some other projects. I also will throw in a couple of charity projects. Unfortunately work and sleep interfere with my quilting time.

    That's a good question. I'm really torn. I have a few UFOs that I need to finish and I've promised myself that I will finish them this year. But I'm afraid that if I do nothing but finish UFOs my "hobby" will seem more like a chore than a "hobby." My hobby is supposed to be fun but I've stopped working on these quilts for various reasons, boredom, etc. For me the fun of my "hobby" is choosing the fabrics and patterns and learning new techniques. I don't just start quilts, I finish them, too. But I've had these few UFOs hanging over my head for too long and I want to finish them. So, what I plan to do is finish them this year and get them behind me so I can go back to having fun again.

    Thanks to the UFO thread I finally got mine done that has been lingering for 15 years. So up next is a Japanese inspired quilt for a friend of mine using red batiks and grey applique, then a baby quilt for my friend in Finland - it looks like a wrapped present and is so cute! Then I am going to get some small quilts going for local uses - Yale New Haven Hospital Childrens, possibly the local fire department or the Women's Club - anyone who can use them for people in need. The 5 Minute block pattern shold be just the thing for those - fun and easy to do.

    This year I want to make all my gifts for my family . For birthdays and stuff I don't know though. I wanted to do this for Christmas but put it off because I don't know if they'll like homemade stuff or not. How do you all get over being nervous and just go ahead a make the gifts and risk them liking them or not?
    Sew, sew, it's the threads that keep love together :>} I love sunbonnet sue,old-fashioned things like 1950's or older housewife things, and like hankies,tea towels and aprons . Thanks to some lovely members on here I now have lots of aprons in my collection !!

If I can get both of these finished before the end of this year I will be really happy. I might just have to throw in a quick and easy project somewhere just for fun.
    Wow that Affairs from the Heart pattern looks time consuming but beautiful!! Would love to start it but have so many appliqué UFO'S :0(. Needleturn appliqué is my passion!!

    My list includes finally quilitng 6 quilt tops. Finish the challenge quilt from my sewing club. Make 2 graduation quilts for nephews and a baby quilt for my sister's baby (due in July). I also want to do a scrappy log cabin and have already started started a EPP star quilt to keep my hands busy while watching TV in the evenings and when riding in the car. I also want to improve my bag making skills, make a couple of purses and work with my daughters (ages 9 and 11) teaching them to sew on quilts for their American Girl dolls.

    Well, let's see: I am ready to begin a white on white Welch quilt--18" blocks QAYG and then put together; a top that my late sister pieced for her newest gd; a jungle quilt for dgs who is 7 and a tumbler top that is almost ready to put together. Whew! That's a list! Good luck to all of us.

    I hardly know where to start. I'm trying to finish Craftsy BOM 2012 as last year I was side-lined for 6 months recovering from a ruptured disk in my neck, surgery and rehab for over 4 months, and have signed up for the BOM 2013. My DIL would like a quilt for Zoe's bed, our DGD, and a quilt for their bed, but Zoe's quilt comes first. I have 2 other BOM from several years ago, pattern and fabric all included; HOWEVER, high on my list is to decide on a pattern and then make the top for our July 4th family reunion this year. If I can get the top done early enough my oldest niece said she would quilt it, as she just got a LAQ last year - she and her husband plan to have a quilting business up and running when they retire, and yes I said her husband, as he quilts too. Then there are the Bow Tucks bags I want to make for friends and lots of craft items for a craft show in Nov. Other than that there isn't much on my agenda for 2013 LOL.

    I gave three quilts for Christmas, the ones who didn't get them wanted one too. More to be done for this year

    My LQS is having a mystery block of the month. They are 16 inch blocks and from Eleanor Burns. Also our monthly quilt club does a 12 inch block. You get a fat quarter that one of the employees picks out and buy it for a $1 and make how ever many blocks you can get then you get to put your name in for a drawing. If you make 3 blocks, you get to put your name in 3 times. I can't believe I have won 3 times lately, the last one I won was Christmas fabric from Thimbleberries which I kept, the Jan. one had 19 blocks and my name was again drawn but I declined as I already haven't worked on the Thimbleberries one.

    I joined a BOM program with another group I belong to. January is done. I think I can manage 1 block a month.

    I started a batik quilt I've been wanting to make for me. Got the pieces cut out and started putting blocks together. Just happened to notice the directions said to use 12 different fabrics (how did I miss that?) and I only used 4. I think it is going to look alright so I'm going to finish it. Maybe I'll do the correct version next time.

    I'm waiting on some clothes to arrive and then I have 2 lap size memory quilts to make.

    That is all I have planned right now as far as quilting goes. We are painting the bathroom this weekend. Next, we are going to do some repair work and paint the kitchen. Guess my time will be divided up for a while.

    Well, I'm in a 4-month Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt group - supposed to complete 3 blocks a month. Then I want to finish my Block of the Month from last year - need to cut the setting pieces and get the blocks sewn to the setting pieces. Should probably also do that for the previous year's Block of the Month. Currently working on finishing my New York Roundabout wallhanging. Should probably make the blocks from last year's Craftsy Block of the Month as well as begin this year's. Need to finish my Kaye England Civil War blocks - I've got 5 of them done. Also should finish my Ann Peterson FMQ sampler, I've found some things online that I want to do...

    Oooh! This list looks TERRIBLE in print! Maybe I should just pick ONE thing and finish it before I start something else. But what would be the fun in that?!?

    My goal is to use up as much of my scrap as possible. I made my husband a place mat for his computer in the office, lots of baby burb cloths, and not cutting and sewing tons of 3 1/2 tumblers...so hoping ot make a huge dent in my scrap pile. I am really loving scrappy...
