Default Quilting Goals for 2019?

Not resolutions, as we all know what road that leads to, but what are your goals?

1: I have unsubscribed from all online fabric shops, they don’t help my wallet and I have more fabric than I will ever use, my goal is to use what I have and not add to the hoard.

2: Master Prosticher for my longarm and use it! It intimidates me and I don’t know why, but I shall overcome this fear.

3: EQ8, learn to use this as well, I don’t know why tech stuff leaves me so squeamish, but this too I shall either use it or lose it.

4: Curved piecing, I have made a few blocks over the years, but the result was not to my standards so I will accomplish this!

5: Paperpieicing, I have tried this a few times and I did like the results, and would like to do an entire quilt.

6: Use my favorite fabrics, better me than someone else, that’s why I bought it!

What would you like to accomplish in 2019?

My list is shorter...I'd like to learn how to make a scalloped border and I have one coming up as I work on the Hearts and Apron Strings quilt. You can see it by clicking here

I'm working on the T squares now, but some time in January I'll have the border finished and will be learning how to do curved binding. I'm sure I'll add to my goal as the year goes on.

I really need to use scraps. At least sort and trim into useable pieces. I like be scrap quilts but have such a variety that won't necessarily work together. Can we say "overwhelmed "?

Get my Bernina 440 in for a check up. I think at the end of a January if the the turn around time isn’t too busy. I am finishing up my current projects before it goes. While it’s away, I want to get another big quilt sandwiched for machine quilting when I get it back. I hate, hate, hate being without my favourite machine.

I have an overflowing scrap box and my goal is to do something with it.

Wow, tallchick, you have an impressive list!

Unsubscribe from everything?? Yikes! I rarely buy, and most always just delete the emails. Once in a while, though, I look at them, possibly put things in a cart. Rarer still is actually completing the sale.

Good luck with EQ. I decided that it really wasn't for me, and knew somebody who works with a good cause who was wanting it. Out in the mail it went. It stung a bit, having spent that much. But maybe it is being enjoyed, or at least used, by somebody else.

My goal is to get to sewing on a more regular basis. I retired 18 mos ago, but one thing or another has kept me from stitching. Most recently, nannying for grandson from late August until now. It was lovely to be with them out of state and spend time with the boys. Baby was 4 mos when I arrived, he will soon be 9 mos; other grandson is almost 3. It was amazing to see how they changed so much in that short time. They will both be in full time daycare now. While gone, kitchen, bathroom and laundry remodel happened. It's not quite done, and there is stuff everywhere. My cutting/work table was DH's temporary kitchen, and has just had microwave, hotplate, etc. moved. My hope is that in one more week I can get to my sewing machine, even if not everything is quite where it belongs.

I’d like to make a quilt using my new accuquilt cutter and complete the bom’s I’ve signed up for.

My hubby is putting together my new workbench which will serve as an ironing station as I type this. Next project will be to install shelves in the sewing room closet, then I can organize my fabric and better see what I have. I’m so excited and grateful to have such an amazing sewing space!

I’d also like to make a quilt for my oldest son and possibly a wedding quilt for a nephew who is getting married.

1. Learn 3 new techniques , minimum.
2. Declutter, organize, and beautify my sewing room.
3. Make at least 3 doll quilts, 2 large throws, and 1 for a family member (TBD).
4. Grease and prep my Featherweight and start using it. Same for my 15-91.
