My quilting goals for this year include things like -
1. Charity quilts: 10 quilts per month for our organization - Fundacja Opoka.
Where am I? I should have 30 almost done but I don't.
I've finished 10 and have the next 10 in progress. (I got kinda behind when I focused on scraps in Feb/March.)
2. 2" strips quilts - 21 more for the year
I've finished 6 tops and written up those patterns. I'm okay on that goal
3. Scrubs fabrics quilts - I wanted to use up a tub of scrubs fabrics each month til they are mostly used up.
I've made 4 tops this year and not used up 1/2 of one tub. That goal is rather ambitious. It's crazy in fact. I'll probably revise it to 2 tops a month. I'm trying to make these quick and easy.
4. 2.5" strips quilts - 6 this year
Nothing yet. My problem here is that there are books and books using "Jelly Rolls" - so my motivation is limited here - but I have 4+ bags of strips, so I need to get busy using them. I will spend some time searching the 'net, though for patterns that will work with what I have and what I like.
5. Floral quilts - 10 quilts this year
6. Upcycled quilts - Finish at least 5
So far I have "finished" 2 - Double Nines and Monkey Wrench Fun and made a top that falls into this category but also the 2" strips category - Book Stacks. I have one top made in '16 left to quilt - A Nod to Mod. Still need to finish quilting 3 quilts in this category.
7. Get control of my scraps - This, being interpreted is - cut them all up so that I no longer have bags and boxes of scraps sitting around waiting to be processed.
So far, so good. I've cut up lots of them. You will see a "strips report" at the end of this month and it reflects this focus in February/March. I hope to reach this goal by the end of April and be completely caught up on cutting up all the misc. scraps and pieces sitting around. Of course, I say that, and then I create more, but hopefully never again like before!
So, you can see, I have a ways to go with my goals. They are all "just goals", however, and not a matter of life and death. I like to have something to aim for when I go into the room to sew.
So, wherever this post finds you reading, I trust you have a wonderful day!
