2008 Quiltng Goals

I added a tally list in my side bar. My hope it will help me see were I need to make progress. Last year I really worked on getting my UFOs to flimsie stage. And I did totally finish 6 quilts not counting small projects.(I hand quilt it takes awhile). So this year I really want to get some of those flimsies finished. I think I'm going to explore machine quilting. I did play around with it on a doll quilt and want to try a larger quilt. My goal is to hopefully get 12 quilt tops totally finished. (I have some that are over half quilted). I also want to complete my 3 oldest UFOs to flimsie stage. I am proud that of the 10 quilts I'm still piecing only 3 are over a year old.

So with my sewing goals set I'm ready for the challenge.


I like to have pictures with my posts here are 2 quilts I enjoy and use every day. Top one is a lady of the lake and the second is a log cabin set in a windmill set

Sounds like you made good progress this last year. If you hand quilt, you have to expect to make slower progress to the finished-finished stage. Love your lady of the lake, I'd use that one everyday, too!

Hope '08 is just as productive for you as '07 has been *s* Happy New Year.

What's a flimsie? I make quilts, and I have never heard that term before.

You did a wonderful job on your quilts last year ESPECIALLY if you hand quilt. The two you are showing are lovely but I think I like the Lady of the Lake best.

Good for you. Last year I had 4 finishes and brought the remaining UFOs to top stage...if they weren't already. I also bought all the backings. This year it will be quilt, quilt, quilt!
