My Quilty Resolutions 2016

The new year is here and I have been in an organizing frenzy.  I’ve been creating, in my head, all the things I want to accomplish this year.  I thought I would throw the quilty ones out here and see if I can follow-through with them.  So, it is now time for My Quilty Resolutions!

Quilty Resolutions

  1. I will finish those UFOs that are cluttering up my sewing area in the form of quilt tops or blocks not yet put into quilt tops.01b65ba82469a3ae30cebe21edbded59215b92ea37 01f1f6c3a840aa6edbd6c76d32ef18d58978e18575019ef6c53b728fd5adc7801234ce8e61b3e6cc5756
  2. I will limit my stash buying to items I think are awesome, items needed to finish current in-progress quilt tops, backing fabric if I cannot or do not want to piece a back with the scraps.  I will also be joining Jenn from A Quarter Inch from the Edge in her The Year of the Stash 2016.

  3.  I will continue to organize my sewing area to keep it tidy.  I will need to destash all fabric that is no longer my style or that I cannot see that I will ever use in any project.   I may try to sell it or I may just donate some of it.  I think the older stuff, especially the fat quarters from Joann’s that are way too thin for anything I would sew now, will be donated.
  4. I will self-design patterns and make them available to the quiltiverse via Craftsy or free on my blog.  This will be a big challenge for me as I develop the skills needed to accomplish it.
  5. I will continue to challenge my skills where the actual quilting is concerned.  I am venturing out of straight lines and hope to get moving toward more free-motion quilting.  I don’t like to practice anything so that could be my downfall here.  I just want to jump in and get it done.  However, I know that practice is key to training your muscle memory where FMQ is involved so I will try to practice and become more confident in my skills in this area.01374bb3fd0039a40b49c0408f5ff535a57a59a6d7

  1. Thanks for spreading the love about The Year of The Stash. When you’re destashing, consider making quilts to donate to a local charity. Baby quilts are a great size to practice free motion quilting. That way, you’re practicing, but making something at the same time, so it doesn’t really FEEL like practicing. And if you don’t like how it turns out, it’s not going to be hanging around your house staring you in the face! 🙂

    I love reading other crafter’s yearly goals. Thanks for sharing yours–I’m with on finishing up the WIPs. Whew!

  3. I may have to adopt all of your 2016 Quilting Resolutions for my own, since I did not make any. But yours read as if you have a camera in my sewing room – Aaaaahhhhhh! Great post, and loved seeing the quilts!
