Have You Set Your 2013 Quilty Goals?

by Nicole

I haven’t written a list of projects that I want to do this year. Instead, I have one major goal: Finish what I start. That’s it. Easy. Simple.

When I heard about A Lovely Year of Finishes, hosted by Melissa and Shanna, it sounded like a lovely match between my goal and the event. Every month you set a goal to finish something, finish it, and at the end of the year you will have a lovely year of finishes. Easy. Simple. I like that.

For January, my goal is to finish the Christmas log cabin quilt I started only days before Christmas.

Since Christmas is long over, I will dedicate this quilt for Christmas 2013. It will be the first time I have ever gotten a head start on Christmas prep!

So what about you? What are you hoping to finish up?

Yes, that is a good idea to plan ahead for what I want to get done! For January, I would like to get my tumbler quilt top quilted and done. The top has been done since last summer, but I am stumped as to how to quilt it, so it has just been sitting there, waiting for me to find inspiration. Any suggestions on quilting ideas for a simple old-fashioned tumbler?

I listed all of my WIPs o my blog and plan to finish (or abandon) all of them. I imagine the ones I don't love will be donated to charity through my guild.

1: Use up my stash, 2: Use up my stash, 3: Use up my stash.

I jumped on this too, after finding 38 WIPs when cleaning o.O

It's a big green brute that needs finishing next…another one to banish to a cupboard once finished I'm afraid.

I made a FAL list – at the top is the mod crosses which I'm anguishing over now! ;-/

First I re-organized my quilting studio, now I'm going to work on all those WIPs! Hope to get lots done this year – as well as new projects.

My goals are very similar to your goals! I want to finish what I start and also quilt from my stash as much as possible… I definitely need to use up some fabric before I start buying more!

I love your goal of finishing what you start. For me that might mean by the end of the year instead of the month, but even that would be an improvement! It is impressive that you started a quilt just days before Christmas. I'm certain you are a master at organization. I've made a 2013 quilts project list, so I'm on my way!

finishing things we start seems like such a simple idea and so difficult to achieve! But that is my goal – slow down, and finish, finish, finish!

This is a good goal. That quilt is going to be lovely and so nice to take out this fall.
