    We've all been diligently working hard on our Christmas gifts. What will you do when the holidays are over? Birthday gifts? Baby gifts? I'd love to hear what you'll be trying next!!

    Hmmm, not sure yet, but when the quilt bug bites hard again, I am sure the fabric will talk to me and I will find something to make! LOL

    Definitely baby quilts - just picked up the cutest flannels at LQS - also some baby grow panels too. I have a baby girl (friend of mine) due in February and another friend having first grandchild in May - looking forward to the holidays over and back to normal.

    Planet Patchwork just posted a small mystery--I am tempted. But I have tons of UFOs and other projects in the works. And I want to do some of the gifts I gave away for myself... apron and neck pillow for sure.

    I'm really hoping my shoulders will heal--real bad tendonitis. I'm very tense when I quilt and my shoulders and neck hurt for days. I'm ok when I piece, just hurts when I machine quilt.
    I do have to make a quilt for an auction but I hope someone will volunteer to quilt it. Not due til end of Feb.

    I am deTermined to Not make gifts in 2011. One year off from gift-making. All of my quilting career (lol... 10 years, minus 2.5 years away from it) has been about completing quilts in time. In Time. Birthdays, mother's day, new babies... I want a year where I am quilting to improve and vary my skills. Where I have Time to fiddle and experiment without the pressure of hurry hurry hurry.

    I'm really really looking forward to it! After christmas, I will re-organize my quilting corner and work on diminishing my scraps via string quilting. Then! Who Knows what Glorious creations await! I'm excited!

    I'm going to be on a search for the right fabric to do a OBW for myself. Other than that, not really sure. Just need to work on getting some of this fabric used up. I found a bin full of really old fabric that I'm thinking would be neat to make a dresdan quilt(would look so vintage :) ).

    Make scrappy 9 Patch, Log Cabin tops etc. for Baby quilts.
    Handquilt 2 "Freddy Moran" type tops already pieced.
    Complete a vintage Dresden Plate top.
    Piece and quilt a non-traditional quilt from the book by Freddie Moran and
    Gwen Marston "Collaborative Quilting" for fall 2011 area Quilt Show.
    Whew .... that is at least a start, right?
    In meantime I machine quilt for others.

    Well, I told my sisters I would make them quilts for next Christmas. Two of them are thrilled but the third said no thanks. So I have 2 queen sized quilts to make before next Christmas. I would really love to finish all of my current UFOs. Then I would like to make a Hunters Star quilt for our king sized bed. Plus I have an online store so I need to make some things for that and hopefully stuff will start selling! Sounds like I have a busy year planned as do many of you!

    Once Christmas is over and all the decorations are down our place looks so blah! So I am going to make a snowflake quilt as a wall hanging to brighten this place up. Then I have a spring wall hanging to do and several quilts that are sitting on the back burner including some charity ones and ones for the young women in my church that turn 18 next year!

    I couldn't have said it better. This December of making no quilty gifts has been an eye opener & I don't plan to get caught up in the rush rush ever again.

    My first project is to get my studio clean and re-organized. Then I have two baby quilts "owed" to a couple of friends. After that I want to make a king-sized pieced duvet cover; no quilting, though, at least not yet. I may someday quilt it so it's a quilt by itself, but I'm not wanting to take that on right now.

    I have several other projects in mind, but these three are next in line.
