2018 Craft Goals

2018's word is Focus on what I have and use it.  Do not pine over another project.

To move the project below along, or even into the finished column would be great!

The first 12 are the UFO projects for Judy at Patchwork Time's UFO Challenge/encouragement for the year.  Every month she will draw a number and the number associated with the project is the project you work on for the month.  I hope to make progress on some of these projects, they do not have to be finished, but some sort of progress will always be great.

February - #1 - Wedding Quilt for L&B - fabric is starched.  The next step is to iron and start.  The colors of the quilt will be different.


December - #2 - Quit for Grandma - a kit that I picked up.  It has not been removed from the packaging yet.

August - #3 - Wedding Quilt for S&D - fabric starched, and EPP prepared.  The next step is to iron fabric and work on hand sewing the dresden plates together.

October- #4 - Wedding Quilt for C&T - fabric all cut, currently working on piecing blocks together.

April - #5 - Mom's Quilt - started, I need to figure out why I put it off to the side.  What happened?

June - #6 - Wedding Quilt for N&B - fabric is all cut.  The next step is starting the piecing.

November - #7 - Dr. Who Quilt - fabric is half cut.  The next step is to start sewing it together.

March - #8 - Gathering Mystery Quilt by Cora's Quilts - the parts are all cut out.  The next step is to sew it all together.

September - #9 - Ispy Mystery Quilt for Niece - the fabric is picked out and half starched.  The rest needs to be starched and then ironed.

January - #10 - Storm at Sea Version 1 - it was started in a class, I just need to finish it, after I make a few more units (more like 50 or more).

July - #11 - Bel Canto - some blocks have been started, it has a total of seven steps, with the seventh being the putting it together.

May - #12 - Christmas table runner - the runner has been taken apart to remove the stain, it is now time to put it back together.

Jo Kramer at Jo's Country Junction is hosting a BOM Challenge to finish up a BOM quilt that she has.  I am going to be participating and working on Sweet Tooth that I hope to finish over the next year.

Breakfast Club at my LQS is hosted in semesters, and they run 1st semester, January through June, and 2nd semester, July through December, each year.  The 1st semester I am doing an independent study and working on a quilt called Ring of Stars, which is for a belated wedding quilt for a couple that got married in January 2015 (yes!  I am that late).

My plan for my homework is as follows:
January: Cut out quilt - step 1 and 2
February: Step 3 - triangle blocks
March: Step 4 and 5 - 4 patches and bigger 4 patch
April: Step 6 - put blocks together
May: Step 7 - sashing
June: Step 8 - put together quilt top

The 2nd semester for Breakfast Club, I am doing an independent study and working on a quilt called Island Breeze, which is for a belated wedding quilt for a couple that got married in July 2015 (yes!  I am that late, again).

My plan for my homework is as follows:
July: Iron fabric and cut out quilt
August: Step 1-5 within pattern
September: Step 6-10 within pattern
October: Step 11-15 within pattern
November: Step 16-19 within pattern
December: Put quilt top together and borders
