Resolution and priorities

I have been thinking a little on how to prioritize my quilting for 2010... Last year Rose and I made a pact to make what we love and finish what we started, and it actually worked!!! With one exception I finished what I started in 2009. So I have made a small adjustment to the text in my side bar, and will keep on making what I love and finish what I start!

-and work on a few of those pesky UFOs in between ;o) However I do have three projects that will rank high on my list of priorities for this year:

1. The Sugar Camp Quilt
The reason for the resolution last year... I just ran out of time for finishing it between all my Christmas sewing, but it is ready for layering and quilting. The backing fabric arrived in the end of December, I have batting on the shelf, and the stencils for marking my quilting lines ready. Just have to get around to basting it!



2. Carolina Christmas
This mystery quilt was started in the end of November and I really had no hopes or plans of finishing it in 2009. I did spend some time during the holidays putting the blocks together, and now have to assemble the top. Not yet sure if I'll do the pieced border Bonnie suggests, or if I'll do a plain border for this one; or perhaps no border at all? Backing fabric is bought and in the drawer, and I think I'll either do some "quilting made easy" (I still have a few rolls laying around somewhere) or some stippling on it.



3. The Winter Quilt
Ehhhh... this is in the category UFO... Rose and I started working parallel on this quilt back in September 2007 with plans on having it ready for the Aussie winterseason 2008, but none of us are even half way on the blocks. I have all the pieces for the whole quilt cut out and ready to sew, and they are kept in the recliner in my bedroom:



Wouldn't it be better to have a finished quilt in the recliner ready to snuggle under with a good book?

Hello, sweet friend ! ;>)
I have very often looked at that logo of yours in your sidebar, and find it so clever.
Hmmmm.... I really should take example. Would you, eventually, allow me to use that logo on my own sidebar ? (referring to you, of course! ;>)

(((HUGS))) & smiles !
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXXOOXXO

You really got going on your Carolina Christmas and left me in the DUST! RATS! I better get a move on. I DID get a couple Christmas promised projects done and am just about to take a class sample off the frame today. A couple of customer quilts in the wing...and gee..I'm all booked up again. I guess having NOTHING to sew/quilt on would be more of a tragedy! Happy New Year!

All of your UFO's are gorgeous and I can't wait to see them finished. I have a number of UFO's I just don't know if I even want anymore. I'm going to have to go through things and possibly just give up on a few. :)

Just making a plan is a great start. Looks like you have things under control.

Du har vært utrolig flink til å fullføre det du har begynt på. Skulle vel hengt meg et slikt mål for 2010 jeg også. Jeg gleder meg til å se alt dette ferdig!!!

Those are nice projects and once finished, oh my .....! That is a great idea to buddy up with someone. It helps to keep a person on track.

Shasta said...

It's still a great resolution, because "finish what I start" doesn't tell you when the start happened anyway. I wish you well on your resolutions.

Hi, I am from New Jersey and I love your blog. I was wondering if you know where I can order a book with patterns from Norway. I am half Norwegian and have been to Norway twice and I would love to make a quilt with different blocks. If you can help me I would appreciate it.


Thank you, Linda

Your Caroline Christmas is beautiful. I LOVE the colors you chose. I really didn't like the way this pattern looked until I saw your choice of colors. You can really see the pattern and it sparkles! LOVELY!

SÅ flott Carolina Christmas'en din blir! Eg satsar på ein litt mindre versjon (smalare), og er på pause enno etter jula. Ta ein titt på mine fargar i bloggen, om du har lyst. Artig at dei blir så forskjellige :o)
