2018 Quilting Goals


2018 New Year’s Goals



1.      Give more of my quilting items away.  It is always nice to give a gift; it makes a random day very special – both on the giving and receiving end.  Since I appreciate all of my friends, I will show some love through the mailbox.   So if I ask for your snail-mail address, you will know why.

2.     Don’t fret so much if something doesn’t turn out just as I want.  Finish it and move on.  I am working on the triangles for the Jane Stickle quilt right now, and must remember this.

3.     Blog more than once a week.  The Design Wall Mondays have me programmed now to blog every Sunday evening, for publication on Monday morning.  There is lots more going on than what’s on my design wall.

4.     Make a list of quilts I’d like to make.  It’s in my head, but I’d like a paper list to add to, cross off, eliminate, tweak, etc.

5.     Eliminate  guilt when I start something new.  I will work on what is fun and if a UFO doesn’t get finish now, it will get finished later.  Quilting (on new-old-whatever) and not guilt, is what I’m aiming for.

6.     Five is enough.  Make no more than five goals, is what I say.  Happy New Year!


  1. I like your list, especially #6. Sometime, if you are so inclined, would you do a blog post on 'the quilts in my head'? It would be fun to read your list and imagine with you. (I enjoy your blog very much and follow you through my feedly account.)

  2. Those are wonderful goals! Quite frankly, they are my goals too. I am in the process of going through my 10 bazillion UFO's, okay maybe 100 and figuring out how to donate things and making more quilts for giving. Sometimes having a huge quilting space is a detriment in my case!

  3. I love starting new projects sew will always have UFO's and I am going to accept that about myself from now on. Without guilt...

  4. I agree with #6. We sometimes complicate our lives by making our "to do" list much too long. I was thinking, just this morning, that I should gift some of my quilts to my dear friends. I'm more about the making than about the having.

  5. Great goals!! Especially #6 - I'm not so good at lists - but maybe that is a good idea

  6. Good goals...looks very similar to my own.

  7. I like your goals!!!!! Short and Sweet and attainable!

  8. You've got a great list of ambitions for 2018. Good luck with each!


I am always searching for new ideas and your feedback helps me learn how to do things better. Thanks for stopping by!
