Rachel I believe in you. You can do it! My quilting resolution is to complete at least two of the many unfinished quilt projects "hanging out" in the sewing room, ha. I also hope to spend at least 30 minutes a day doing some form of creative outlet. That could be quilting, stitchery, knitting or applique. Happy New Year to you and yours!

Trisha said...

Looks like you have as many BOM quilts as I do! I think you can meet all your goals! My goals for2009...I am going to tackle my UFOs and reduce my stash. Happy New Year!!

Catherine said...

Tackle them one at a time and you'll get them done! My resolution? Try again to master free motion quilting.

littlebluecottage said...

That is a great list and I think with your energy, you'll do it!

I have a few resolutions.

1. Quilt from the stash. Less buying = more quilting. Really, all I need to buy for a very long time is batting and maybe some kona cottons to do sashing and/or backing.

2. Practice & more practice mitred corners and machine stippling.

3. Do a hand-quilted project. Just to see and feel the difference.

4. Donate some quilts to school fundraisers.

That's it! Thanks for your giveaway! Come back to my blog...I miss your enthusiastic comments.

Tina

Hello Rachel!

That is a monster of a list! But you can do it! I have a huge one also! Anyway one of my quilting resolution is to make a quilt using all the fabric scraps my grandmother cleaned out of her sewing room and brought over and said make a quilt! So I have that to do along with 100 other things!

This Pick a Pocket purse has just got to be the cutest thing I have ever seen! I would love to carry it!

Thanks so much for the great chance!

Pumpkin Patch Quilter said...

Good luck with your 2009 goals. :) If you put your mind to it you can definitely complete it!

I have a few resolutions for this year, but one is to try to make some of the pretty quilts I've drawn up on EQ6. :)

Happy New Year!

Aimee said...

Oh fun! As a young girl I quilted a lot with my grandma. She'd mail me fabric squares and I'd sew them together and mail them back - we'd do this until we had our quilt top made. it was really a lot of fun. Now that I'm grown with 2 kids, I'd love to get back into quilting!! So that's my goal for this year!!! Wish me luck! :)

Needled Mom said...

A quilting resolution??? I have always wanted to try a Cathedral window quilt and I think this should be the year. I am sure it will be small unless I get really carried away. Happy new year.

Grateful Gramma said...

My quilting resolution? Enjoy the old quilts I've collected. That's probably the only resolution I'd actually keep! :-)

Susan said...

My quilty resolution is to finish my UFO's before starting any new projects, but I have a feeling that it is going to be VERY hard to keep!

Pat said...

I can never have too many pockets in a purse, so that purse is for me...I'm sure of it. One of my quilting resolutions is to pick out 4 or 5 of my MANY quilting books from the shelf and do at least one project from EACH of them. My list isn't as ambitious as yours, but if anyone can do that size list, it is YOU, Girlfriend!!! :) Hope you visited my Jan. 1 post on my blog and entered my giveaway, too. I have your blog as one I follow and it is on my sidebard.

Celeste said...

Kim said...

Cute bag. My resolution for quilting is fairly easy. I joined the finish a project a month challenge and am going to use up my stash so I can buy new fabric.:)I think you can do it if you make a couple of blocks a week on each bom you will have them all done in no time.

Anya said...

I resolve to finish all the center blocks of my Dear Jane quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

Sweetpeas said...

I don't quilt (and w/ a new baby due in April, I don't think 2009 will be the year I learn LOL), can I have a knitting resolution instead? I'm really hoping to get at least 3, ideally 5 more wool diaper covers knitted before baby's born in April.

andsewon said...

One of my quilting resolutions (goals) is to quilt my scrappy churn dash quilt..finally also use up as much of my stash as I can this year!!!

Lola

Quilt Hollow said...

Resolutions....I'm thinking goals! I would like to make and donate at least 6 quilts to Quilts of Valor for our military and reduce the stash I already own by half....it may be that easy with the economy the way it is. My goal is also to finally make a new Christmas tree skirt....I say that every year!

katie z said...

One of my goals for the year is to use up a box of fabrics I don't love anymore!

BUMBLE BEANS said...

my resolution, is to not take on more than I can handle!

cute blog!

Paula said...

I love that bag!!! I thought about making one, but decided I didn't have the time. I'd love to own one....and I'm certainly not picky about fabrics!! LOL I'd like to finish up more projects. I've got so many quilt tops started and I need to get them finished up! That's my plan!

Gord and Alisa said...

Wow, you've got quite the list going! I'm not as energetic as you are though. I'd like to quilt 2 quilts that are only tops, make a baby quilt and, together with my sisters, make a king-sized quilt for my parents.

Samantha R said...

My quilting resolution is to finish cutting squares for a corduroy quilt from the scraps I have from my husband's late grandmother and to put the quilt together. I also want to finish the quilt we inherited from that same grandmother - she cut all of the pieces and assembled one square, but never finished it.

Dandelion Quilts said...

WOW...good luck on that list. My quilting resolutions are to use at least 1/3 of my current stash, to try new patterns, and to keep sewing. Thanks for the giveaway.

quiltma said...

I am working on my resolutions with an open mind that even if I don't make it through the end of the year each day I do make it will be a better day for it.
My Resolutions:
Try to use my stash, as I work on projects say a prayer for the receipient, try to make more of my gifts this year and also to try to learn new skills and perfect others but only to the point where I can still enjoy my hobbies

Codi said...

Kari said...

I am positive you can make your goals. I would like to finish at least 5 UFOs and start a couple of patterns I have had for a long time. Happy 2009!!! P.S. I love to see the Pogues on your blog.!!!

Jeri said...

Rachel what an impressive list! I wish you well - just do a little bit every day and you'll be well on your way to finishing those BOMs.

My resolution is to machine quilt and bind at least 4 of my quilt tops this year. It sounds do-able, right?!?

jeri.mihm@sbcglobal.net

simplestitches said...

Hi Rachel, Happy New Year.

Wow, that's quite a list, I'll be back to check on you, to see the progress.

Mine's not that big, double wedding ring quilt, and loads of stitcheries.

cheers Julz

Lea of Farmhouse Blessings said...

My quilting resolution is to finish the anniversary quilt that I began 11 years ago! Oh I'm so ashamed to even mention it ... but there it is! And I'll get to it as soon as I finish the project I just started! LOL

Smiles,
Lea

Simone de Klerk said...

Hi Rachel! Great of you to have this giveaway. My resolution: finish my daughter's quilt by the summer of this year! I'm in for the calendar challenge!

laurie in maine said...

I resolve to finish something - even if it's small - BEFORE starting something new. To remind myself FINISHED is better. Less UFO's + Less Stash = More Satisfaction. Less IS more? ;)

Signing up for the Calendar Challenge would not be breaking resolutions already. Right?

Agneta quilts said...

I'm struggling to get my stash and my scraps in order, so that is my resolution!

agnetaquiltar@gmail.com

Fulvia said...

Quilting Mai said...

My quilting resolution is to finish my ufo's and don't buy anything until everything is finished. I hope I can stick to it

sewing_passion said...

My 2009 quilting resolution is to actually make a quilt. Last year I planned a doll quilt for my niece, but never actually did it. I've never quilted before, so I think if I start small it will be less frustrating and more apt to be finished.

~Bren~ said...

Goodness, girl!! That is some list! I have quite a list too, but the main objective this year is to finish hand quilting my queen size quilt for my bed.

Rue said...

So many unfinished projects! I have so many tops that need quilting! I want to quilt all my stuff. My own bed quilt has been done for 4 years buts never quilted. I only send ones off to be done that I will be giving away. I don't know how many projects are in different stages so I have resolved that I must do those and only do small projects in between the old ones. I need to practice self discipline and that goes for buying fabric just because I like it or it is on sale too. I think this challenge will be fun as there arent lots of rules and restrictions. Getting started tonight!

Helena said...

My goal is to get my first patterns and my little web shop ready.

Vanessa said...

CUTE bag! My quilting resolution is to make something larger than a pillow lol!

cedar chest quilts said...

New Year resolution---clean my sewing room! so when I get a chance to work on something--I can find what I need. Please enter me to win the bag--that's a neat pattern. Angie

Andreah @ Life's A Hoot said...

My quilting resolution is to finish my very first quilt! Thanks =)

Melinda said...

One of my resolutions it to finish at least one more quilt than I start. I can't just keep adding to my UFO stash.

Amy said...

You can do it!

My goal is to make one quilt! My first ever!

~ Amy

Lynn Osborne said...

I do not quilt, but I plan this year to do my darndest to learn. I do lots of embroidery and would like to incorporate them both together. I am getting all of the tools together that I will need and plan to start as soon as my craft room is cleaned up.
Blessings,Joann

Hello Rachel-love your comments on family. My quilting resolution is to finish all items I started for family but have not finished-so today it was a Christmas "NOEL" swag for my mother-in-law (took six years!!), next is quilt for my daughter, flannel throw for my husband and cookbook cover for my mom. Cheers

to finish 5 quilts (by hand)

T said...

This is the second time that I've visited your blog this afternoon - the first was to discover and join the Calendar quilt challenge. You are a very bad influence, I think! ;-)

My resolution is kinda fuzzy at the edges - but I think it's to make more scrap quilts this year. I've realized that even if I don't open my fabric closet, I have enough bits and pieces laying around my sewing room to make multiple quilts!

Rhonda said...

Wow... that is some list! I'm sure you can do it!

I really don't make any New Year resolution 'cause I never stick to it. However, the only goal I might make is to finish a large quilt for me... no promises though. lol
