Resolved to sew 2012

Have you seen the massive giveaway over at Very Berry Handmade? If not, hop over there to check it out. Lovely prizes. And it got me to thinking, what am I resolved to sew this year?

1) my 9-year old needs a new bed-sized quilt. For now, he squeezes himself under the crib sized quilt I made him years ago, and while I am flattered, I imagine he has got to be cold.

2) I started hand quilting a quilt for my bed about 5 years ago and then got bored. Well, I want a quilt on my bed. It is downright embarrassing to be a quilter and not have a quilt on my bed! I'm finishing it this year.

3) Remember my Pindrop block that I made up a while ago while participating in my first Bee this year? I'd like to make a whole quilt out of those.

4) I want to make a bed-sized flannel rag quilt. I have more flannel than I know what to do with.

5) I want to quilt at least 3 of my existing tops this year. I don't know if that is possible, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

6) I've been doing a pretty good job of making and giving homemade gifts, but I want to go all the way this year. It means I'll need to be more disciplined and prepared, but I think I can do it.

Join the giveaway -I'd like to see what you are resolved to do this year.

Great list, Erin. I also want a quilt for my own bed - that will be Swoon. And I'd like to make more handmade gifts for Christmas. Like you, I've resolved to start earlier instead of leaving it to the last minute ;)

I'd say that is a pretty ambitious list. I want to finish my daughter's quilt and make a wedding quilt for my #1 son. Also my #2 grandson is needing a big-boy quilt too. That should be more than enough to work on.
