    As I've been reading through the posts on the QB I've seen alot of New Year's Resolutions, I thought it would be fun if everybody shared some "quilting resolutions" What patterns have you been wanting to try, and are willing to make a resolution that you WILL do in the year 2011?

    Can't wait to hear from everyone :)

    I absolutely have to work on finishing all the quilts I have started first. But I would love to do an Annie's Choice Quilt. The blocks are 12" I would like to do a 42 block quilt (6 across, 7 down) or maybe 30 blocks with some sashing in between. IDK...... but its so much fun to daydream about the next project.

    My New Year's Resolution is to learn how to run my new Tin Lizzie that should be arriving on December 21st. Can't wait to finish a couple easy quilt tops so I can practice on my new "baby"! It's my first long arm, so will be an adventure learning how to load the quilts, etc. I'll probably be asking for lots of advice on here!

    My New Year's resolution is to quilt on my new Sapphire 735. I bought it with a Handi Quilter 10 ft frame when I thought we were building a sewing room addition this fall. Hopefully it will happen next summer so after the holidays I am going to set it up in my husband's shop.

    My new years resolution is to practice, practice practice! I've been working on my machine quilting (just my regular sewing machine)....and would really like to gain confidence in that.

    I think everything I want to try is already in motion. Maybe a crazy quilt or something simple like repeated schoolhouses in red and white... or a pickledish! New York Beauty! A Baltimore Album!

    Oh, no. Ideas are occurring to me. I thought I was satisfied.

    I wnat to do one of a dog sled team...and I have a picture of my grandaughter crawling on the beach that I am hoping to tackle.
    I am sticking to picture quilting...piecing is definitely not for me...I have a bargello lap quilt sitting on my sewing table right now getting quilted...it doesn't lie flat, is going to have some wrinkles, and doesn't look like a bargello either...no more piecing for me:>

    My resolution...Hmmm. I have 6 quilts in progress...some more than others. I would really like to finish at least two of them in 2011 plus start one for GD who is a freshman now. Figure if I start it now, I may have it finished in 3 more years. It is my own pattern/idea so is a challenge. If I can keep watch of this post by year's end '11, I will let you know how I did. :-)

    Ok, it is funny you ask, the bargello is one I really want to do. I did the ocean wave this year. Met my goal.
    Now Bargello, Purse Pattern from Buggy barn, for my one granddaughter.
    and on and on...

    I just got the fabric to do a French Braid. Have had the pattern for a long time but not the nerve. Will jump in after Holidays.

    In 2011 I want to get an embroidery machine. I also have quite a few projects already started that I want to finish. Would love to try a bargello, a log cabin and any new techniques I can learn would be fun. I am game to try most anything.......just don't care for the hand work stuff. lol

I am definitely, definitely going to do a Mariners Compass even if its just one block to use as a wall hanging!!! Of course I still have my Dresden Plate (just started) and Farmers Wife and ........ to complete!!!!

    Oooo....good luck with the Mariner's Compass...those are really cool when they turn out like they should. I'm not that brave just now, lol. It's almost like an inside-out dresden plate. How exciting!

    Well...I'm already starting to plan the quilts for NEXT Christmas! LOL

    I have a quilt for my husband to make that will be completely my design and a LOT of appliqué. I just started one for my baby boy that is snowball blocks, haven't decided what else I'm going to do with it yet. I think I'm going to make a Bento Box quilt for ME in black, red and white. I'd like to try a OBW, but may not get to it. I'm collecting fabric for a quilt for DD. I want to do a Harley Davidson quilt for FIL and an Eagle quilt for my step dad for Christmas(mom and MIL got quilts this year). For the quilts for the Dad's, I'll probably work from panels, so they should be pretty simple.

    Otherwise, I just want to try new block ideas and learn learn learn! I'm still pretty new to quilting, so I'm trying to broaden my horizons. :)
    I'm also making a commissioned quilt early in the new year. We haven't decided on a pattern yet...leaning towards Stacking Coins, but it's for a friend's baby's new toddler bed (the baby is only 8mos! LOL). We decided to wait until after the holidays, partially so I could get my Christmas projects wrapped up, and partially because financially, my friend can't do it right now. I won't be starting until I receive the first half of the payment, to buy fabrics and such.

    I am hoping to make a Dresden Plate quilt with plates of many colors using stash. I also want to make a bookshelf quilt that is an autobiography. Then there's a black and white sampler. And...

    Wow I remember this same thread last year at this time. We were going to finish 1 ufo a month. How many actually did that? I still have my 2 even though I have worked on them on and off all year. Now I am looking at them and wondering if I can finish by Christmas, ( insert eye roll, belly laugh and smirk)
    I will tell you all that they are not my own but I inherited them from my grandmothers. I finish mine from start to finish. What I want to do this year? A quilt for my son, in circles, a harder pattern, and I do not know. We will be moving this summer so I will probably loose 3 months of sewing. Will have to piece by hand something. Oh yea a wedding ring quilt for my friend that asked for one.
