Goals for 2019

I love the beginning of the year, sitting down with a hot cup of tea and my quilting notebooks, to plan lots of projects.  This year I am happy to participate in Quilting JetGirl’s 2019 Planning Party.

2019 Planning Party


My Word for 2019 is “Fresh.”  I picked it to remind me to work more quickly and intuitively, especially in thread sketching and free motion quilting.

An acronym to guide my progress:

Finish large projects (see the five below).  Finish watching the Craftsy classes I have purchased.   Finish up a large tub of non-quilting cottons.
Re-purpose old tablecloths by dyeing and painting them.
Experiment with threads of different fibers, sizes, and weights, in practice pieces.
Sort through supplies and streamline my studio.

Large projects:

Repair this colorful quilt for a family friend.

Vintage Flower Snowball quilt top is basted and needs to be hand-quilted.

60 degree triangle quilt top based on “Papers and Plums” by Alexandra Ledgerwood — needs to have borders of some sort added, and to be machine quilted.


These shirting blocks need to be made into a finished quilt.

“Pixilated” needs to have its hand-quilting finished.  Or at least an updated picture needs to be taken, since this one was from the “what would it look like with these blocks added?” stage.

Small projects:

  • at least one baby quilt
  • oven mitts
  • microwave bowls
  • plaid table runner
  • four small art quilts for The Endeavourers group

I am looking forward to a busy year, and to hearing your plans for the year as well.  If you need ideas, click on the button above to see other plans, goals and resolutions from Quilting JetGirl!
