As I was cleaning up my quilt room after all the Christmas wrapping and creating that went on on there, I happened to open a drawer of patterns ( do you do that too? You are supposed to be focussing on one thing, and then you get distracted by something that seems way more fun? Hahaha). Anyway, I found a whole drawer full of patterns that I have collected over the years and I found some really cute ones that I MUST make…soon. So rooting through these patterns made me think about all the projects that I would like to work on this year….so I started gathering those together….and then I thought I’d make a list of said projects….
Yes, my quilt room is still a mess, and I’m embarrassed to say that I still have wrapping paper sitting around, but I did compile a list of everything I would like to at least work on this year, even if I don’t finish it! So here goes: Feel free to bug me about these projects in future months…keep me honest 😉 .
EPP: I want to at least finish my 6 stars to appliqué on my blocks and maybe, just maybe get this one QAYG-ed and finished??? I’m currently working on my last star so this seems very doable ….famous last words…hahahaha.
Collage quilt: I have a pattern that I bought fabric for but have been too chicken to start it! I received a collage KIT for my birthday and am hoping that that will kickstart that creative process! I am super excited to give this a try and hope it will be as much fun as everyone says it will be. Have any of you made collage quilts? Have any words of wisdom for me?
Embroidery: I have a couple of embroidery projects I would like to work on. First, I am so close on finishing my redwork embroidery on this one! Just one more panel to go and then I have to make all the blocks that are also part of the quilt.
I would also like to start this one: That should keep me out of trouble for a good long time! But isn’t it gorgeous?
I also received this kit for Christmas and would love to finish it and frame it!
And finally, I have big dreams of opening an Etsy store and selling some wares, as well as developing and publishing my very own pattern. This is a big one, but it would be nice to make some money doing what I love and this seems to be a good route to go.
As you can tell I am planning on having a busy year! But you might as well go big or go home, right?!
