15 Quilty Resolutions for 2015

I really don't have 15, but I certainly need to make resolutions.  Especially after today.
Here goes!

1.  Focus on my projects.  I've always been Type A, and it is hard for me to have only one project going.  I think that you can have too many projects, and not give enough attention to each one.  

2.  Clean up!  No, really.  First of all, at the beginning of the year I need to clean up my big, wonderful studio, and get it organized.  Then I need to keep it organized.  It's easier said than done but I know it will make me more creative!!

Those two resolutions were kind of boring and basic.  I have more!

3.  Keep on trying projects that I think are difficult.  For instance:

Paper piecing.  I had to make SIX of these blocks to get four geese sets that flew in the same direction.  But I did it!

Or maybe this:

Yes, Shards!  To me, this kind of piecing is not intuitive at all.  However, I wish, I really do wish, that you could see in person what I see close up!  Somehow the marbled background fabric picks up the strips of color, and as I stitch my very close quiilting, I see that over and over.  I am about 3/4 done with that stitching, and it has been a joy!

My NQB Bee keeps me busy with blocks which are also new to me, and make me think:

It's like vegetables--if I don't try them, how will I know if I like them or not?

4.  Finish the UFO's.  

Everyone has UFO's.  Why?  Most of mine are things that I have allowed myself to put away so that I can work on projects I like better.  Some of my UFO's are very early quilt tops, made when I had no idea what I was doing.  There isn't much of myself in those tops, and so I lost interest.  

5.  Learn new things, go to classes, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!!!!

And to me, this is what sewing, quilting and embroidery is all about!

Linking up to  Yvonne at The Quilting Jetgirl!

Hugs and much warmth and good wishes!



  1. Great list, I relate to all of them.

  2. Shards is going to be so fabulous when it is all done, Debbie! I find it hard to have a lot of projects going at once; if I could be really honest I would prefer to work on one project until it is done before moving on to another. Once I let the WiPs accumulate, it can be so hard for me to find motivation to work on my lesser favorite projects. Ah, well, such is life! Thanks so much for linking up!

  3. I struggle to multi task so working on more than one project at a time just leaves me frazzled ... and I don't like WIP's lying around it just makes me feel guilty when I start something new and I don't enjoy it as much - and I have quite a few WIP's lying around - guilty as charged!. Usually I'm excited to start, hit a glitch, then put it away for a "little" while lol ... perhaps I should make it my resolution to finish them :)

  4. Wonderful List! First I must say I love all your UFO's--Great color choices and as for the Resolutions--I find it is like laundry--and never ending task however if we do a load a day--we are all happy! So I guess we just need to keep working at it!

  5. Love your list!! Hope you check everything off as 'finished' before the end of the new year!

  6. Great list! I also plan on enjoying 2015!

  7. I'm like you--I find it hard to work on anything when I have so much going on! I also plan on tackling a lot of my ufo's next month. I also love our bee :) It's been such fun trying all of these new blocks! Have a Happy New Year!

  8. I have the same problem focusing on my projects. I had to create a spreadsheet to keep me on task.
