Welcome 2012

What are New Year's resolutions? Something you say you are going to do and after a month or two you stop. This year I decided I can follow through if I break the year down in quarters like over at Quilter in the Gap. I think if I break down my list by quarters I will feel like I have accomplished my goals. Here is my first quarter list.

1. Finish this quilt. Needs the binding sewn down. This is a February birthday gift.

2. I have another quilt almost like #1. It needs quilted.

3. Finished hand quilting this postage stamp quilt. This is a March birthday gift.

4. Use up my flannel scraps making rag quilts like this one. I wonder how many I quilts I will have when finished.

5. I want to make Building Houses from Scraps 2012. I don't plan on making 366 houses but I do want to make some houses. Check it out at Jeanneke.

6. Make 3 baby quilts.

I think this is a reasonable list that I can accomplish.

Have you seen the 12 Days of Christmas Blocks? They will be a mini mystery sampler quilt. You can find the blocks at Temecula Quilt Co. Here are my first seven blocks. I am making two sets.

I hope everyone has a blessed New Year.



  1. You have quite the list but it seems doable. Can't wait to watch you tick them off your list.

  2. All those birthdays make nice additional incentives for those projects. They all look lovely!

  3. seems a good way to make your list achievable xx

  4. That's a lovely list to accomplish for the QAL! I can't wait to see what you're able to get done.

  5. Hi Karen, thanks for visiting my blog. Your "12 days..." blocks look great.

  6. Good luck with all your projects!

  7. Good idea of breaking your year into quarters. And, I love your 12 Days blocks. I am having such a good time with that little quilt. Today I need to make yesterdays and then we're done. Sniff. Hum, maybe I should find something else to take it's place?

    Looks like you'll have lots of finishes in 2012

  8. You got quite a bit done. I got your one entry but you can get one entry for each finished item. if you are on flickr you can add a link for a flickr picture. if not, let me know and i will add them for you.
