Quilting goals for 2008

Quilting Goals for 2008

So, I am sitting here catching up on blogs from the weekend and come across Judith's post of "why did I forget my quilting goals??" LOL! Hey, me too! That is too funny :D I have several projects in my mind, several in bags, and several as work in processes is some form or another. Quilting is a bit tougher for me that stitching, you have to think a lot harder (that math!) you have to be much more precise in your cutting, and you have to move a lot more LOL! You know, up and down to cut, press, pin, sew… I've loved the outcome of making quilts, they are very very rewarding to me. SO, this year I feel that I can step up my game a bit more. I have so far done pretty simple quilts, that don't require too much complicated piecing. I want to make something somewhat complicated, and I am not sure what that will be yet… but I want to.
My goals this year are to:

Finish my current WIP:
Grandma's Log Cabin
Thimbleberries Pumpkin Quilt
Blue/Yellow Log Cabin
Pinwheels Quilt

And make the quilts I have kitted up:
Aunt Phyllis' Carpenters Star
Cowboy Carpenters Star
3 ea: Tablerunners

And to make some new ones:
One for my babysitter
One with my plaids I got this year
Make a quilt with my Hawaiian Fabric

Quilts take so much longer to make than a cross stitch. I get stuck after I make the quilt tops, finishing them is hard for me. I don't like basting them and all that, it takes a long time and can be a pain. I don't have big space to put it on a quilting frame… so wish me luck, I know I can get them done :D

wish you all a Happy New Year!!!

Wow, between quilting and stitching how do you have time to do anything else? Isn't it great to have hobbies :)

Happy 2008 ;)
