Goal Setting for the New Year

Goals for January: Planning for 2015

It's a new year with new goals & new projects. One of my goals will of course be to finish up the UFO's from 2014!

But my primary quilting goal for January- is to remember my Girl Scout days & "be prepared".

I ordered supplies for Quiltcon over the weekend. It is exciting to get in to the classes you eagerly register for, but so easy to forget all the prep work needed ahead of time. 
So... I reviewed my supply lists. OMG... What was I thinking???

One of my classes- Off the Grid: Creating Alternate Layouts with Lee Heinrich (
requires 5-20 pieced quilt blocks)- so I am determined not to wait.

For my Strings of Florid Blooms Double wedding ring workshop with Victoria Findlay Wolfe I need over 14 yards of varied fabrics for the front!!! 6 yards for background and 32 fat quarters.
I tried to order her fabric color recommendations and each time the websites would run short. Finally, I lucked out & stumbled on a pack of 50 assorted solids fat quarters from Nancy's Notions. Though they are not the Kona cottons I am used to- I am trusting Nancy's reputation & their quality.

My final workshop- Bias strip curves with Sherri Lynn Wood will require several more yards of fabric as well.

That works out to over 25 yards of fabric- and that is just for 3 workshops!

So, my first goal was to order all that fabric.
My next is to get started on those quilt blocks for Off the Grid.

Quiltcon is only 6 weeks away!


  1. A lot of fabric for sure but just think of all those great projects you'll get from it. Love the solids - so pretty!

  2. It's a good thing you got everything ordered and organized. Enjoy your classes - it sounds fun.
