    What's your quilty resolutions for 2012?

    Mine are to 1 - keep up with my BOM/BOW projects (probably NOT gonna happen though); 2 - practice, practice, practice FMQ; 3 - try different applique techniques; 4 - find creative ways to use felted wool; 5 - find time every day to do something quilty, even if only for a few minutes. What's everyone else's quilty goals???

    I want to quilt every day, if only for a few minutes. I want to learn how to use my Janome mid-arm. I want to finish quilting all my tops that are waiting to be quilted on the Janome. I want to be better at FMQ.

    Well not buy fabric unless I need it for a WIP or UFO, finish up my WIP and UFO's try to get more cabnets in my sewing- craft area. Learn to make feathers on my Lizzie! Have been trying for a year and still can't get them right. I think thats enough of a challenge for me! LOL

    I'm pretty good in the finding time to sew department. I do want to finish up UFO's and not start anything new, unless it's needed for a gift. And speaking of gifts, I made so many this year I want to finish up stuff I already have.
    Next goal would be to organize my house and studio.

    1. make a queen-size quilt for our bed
    2. get rid of some fabric that I know I will never use (anyone remember 'stretch and sew' ?? LOL)
    3. make a quilt for DD either for their bed or for their living room naps on the couch
    4. make a wallhanging that might be even remotely as gorgeous as the ones my friend makes
    5. finish organizing my sewing room (maybe this one should be first!)

    I hope to quilt everyday, reduce my stash, and do at least 3 Judy Niemeyer quilts in queen size.
    It's not a stash-it's a fabric library!

    I just want to FINISH some UFOs. My list of quilt obligations is long and even though these are people I really like, having the unfinished project on the list still weighs heavily on me. So TIME TO SUCK IT UP, STOP WASTING TIME, AND GET TO GETTIN'!

    I vow to post to Judy Laquidara's Design Wall Mondays at least 40 times this year, as I work through the projects I have in mind for the year. It's a great way to make progress, since I only post when there's something new to report!

    I hope to save up for a new and better sewing machine so that I can get excited about finishing my numerous UFOs. And to add lots of new fabrics to my stash. Doing both of these would make a great YEAR!

    To figure out who I AM as a quilter. To stop doing everybodyelse's patterns and start making quilts that make ME happy.

    Finish putting together the tops that I have the blocks made for. If I get all that done it will be a big accomplishment.

    To sandwich, quilt and bind some of the gazilion tops that are already pieced.
    To take the blocks that are pieced but I no longer want to make the quilt and make table toppers of them.
    To get rid of more of my stash by making bazaar items.
    To totally rid myself of some of the things that I have in order to get my upstairs into sewing rooms that are functional for something other than just storing a huge stash.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    I want to try fmq on my husky, finish 10 donations quilts for David's House (10 year cancer remission gift), reduce my stash, only buy fabric for a specific purpose, qoos (quilt out of stash) whenever possible, finish UFO's, and visit all the favorites under quilting and eliminate some (over 100+ sites).

    You all have such good resolutions and high hopes for the new year. I plan to practice, practice, practice on the longarm, stop wasting so much time that could be productively spent, and use up some of my stash.

    Mine is to do quilts that I've already settled on a pattern and have the fabric. Make pillowcases for ConKer Cancer between making quilts. Start my Halloween and Christmas quilts six months before the date.

    When my daughter had her Bridal Shower, I gave her her hand pieced queen size quilt top( over 3000 pieces) after the shower she gave it back to me to hand quilt. That was 18 years ago. I have about 2/3 of the hand quilting done. I want to finish it this year before their anniversary in Sept. and give it to them.

    I would like to finish a BOM that I started last August (not so very far behind). This is doable.

    Mine is to finish at least 2 kits, keep my sewing space organized-cleaning after each project, and get my fabric, books and patterns organized. I also have a list that I hope to stay focused on.
