Every year, I always make the typical resolutions - lose weight, exercise more, etc., and never do anything about them. As a result, the resolutions only last for about a week and then I forget about them.
This year, I decided to actually try to achieve my resolutions, so I'm challenging myself with three quilting-related goals:
- Use at least 90% stash fabrics to make blocks and quilts. My sister tells me that I'm becoming a borderline hoarder with my stash, though it's very organized of course. :)
- Improve my free-motion quilting skills. Quilting? Eeek!
- Finish as many UFOs as possible. I'm counting by 5's now!
So for the January project, I'm working on completing my Sew Sew Modern projects. I made the blocks for the miniquilt months ago, but they have to be sewn together and the finished quilt and a small handmade item have to be sent out by the end of January.
I love this quilt pattern. Each block is 4" finished size, and is a small version of the Flower Basket pattern from the book, Scrap Basket Sensations. I can't wait to see how the quilt comes out!
