Goals for 2013

1) I am planning on staying out of quilt shops - there is not one thing I need. No patterns, no thread, no batting, no fabric, no rotary blades, no rulers, no gadgets, nothing. If I don't have it then I do not need it. There isn't any reason for me to visit a shop in town or online. I guesstimated how much fabric I have and I will never come close to using it all. The folks who get my quilts don't know if the fabric is brand new or 6 years old, they only know that someone out there in the world cares enough about them to make them a quilt. I will be unsubscribing to all emails from quilt stores, if I don't see it I won't be tempted.

2) Make 12 QOV

3) Make 12 quilts for Ronald's House
4) Finish 5 quilts that I have already started

5) Make 5 quilts for Margaret's Hope Chest

6) Learn to paper piece

Other finished quilts

I love your goal #1. I have also found that turning off all the email temptaion is very helpful.

I always say there's nothing I need...then find that I need Kona white or the "right" shade/tone/tint of a fabric to go with something I already have or fabric for backing or thread to match/blend/accent. What I have just never seems to be what I need for that project.

If only I could maintain that sort of self-control! I know there's nothing I NEED, but, boy oh boy, there sure is a lot of stuff I WANT!!!

Ditto to Number 1. That's sorta my goal too! This is a year of finishes for me like other quilters are also voicing.
