I have all the patches pieced for the 2010 TQS Star Crazy BOM. I would love to finish that. I have Celtic Solstice waiting for borders and to be quilted. I have a Pineapple Trash to Treasures top waiting to be quilted and I want to start more. I have a DGS who will have his First Holy Communion this spring and I've got to start that soon. Wouldn't you know I have obligations for more than half the month of January that will keep me away from my sewing machine. Wish me luck/focus!

I want to complete a Quilt of Valor. I have enough fabric and have several patterns in mind - have to choose one and start it.

As with the past few years, I have a lot of projects I want to finish. I have six quilt tops to be quilted and two tops that just need the border finished and they will be ready to quilt. I would really like to have these all completed in 2015. I am also working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt that I would like to finish -- my husband brought me the fabric when he was in Texas and Oregon..and I am trying to decide if I will do the TQS 2015 BOM. :unsure: It would be my first BOM from TQS and it is really beautiful.

Mine is with all of my own fabrics and is scrappy. I chose all batiks with jewel tones on caramel background fabrics. I think I got to May or June before I had to put it aside for other things.

I really regret not buying the Ruffled Roses kit. Did you buy the kit or select your own colorway?

The one project I have to finish is the quilting of my sister and her new husband's wedding quilt. That has a hard deadline of next Christmas, but I'd like to get it done this spring so it can go in the county fair, assuming it turns out nice enough. I believe that is my only "commitment" quilt for this year. After that, I have a long list and will probably add more during the year. The tops on my mind right now are finishing the piecing for my Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusions quilt, making progress on Sedona Star and Ruffled Roses and starting the marking and quilting of an angel wholecloth quilt that I have designed. But that's just a handful of what I have going!

I look forward to seeing everyone's progress on all of their projects through the year!!

Good question. Several ideas but haven't taken any action. Need to work on follow thru with time commitments mostly.

I'd like to finally quilt the first BOM....2008 wasn't it? I keep looking at it and trying to decide how I want to do it and work up enough nerve to start.

I have 4 quilt tops to be quilted so they will have to get done this coming year. One is the 2013 BOM! My plan is to remind myself to enjoy the quilting part of this hobby rather than dread it. I learn a lot with each quilt I complete so by the time I am 90 I should have it down to a fine art. ;)

I really plan to take my time with the 2014 BOM. AND, by starting on those quilts for my grandsons, surely I will use up so much fabric that I will be able to RUN to the quilt shop to get just the right fabric to finish them up, don't you think?

I want to improve my actual quilting and bindings this year. I have several show quilts I have already figured out, but I think that although my quilting is not too bad, it needs to improve. So I will be working on that this year. I also plan on making several quilts before buying any more fabric (unless I need a piece to fill in a missing piece). I also have a book I'm writing on applique and have to come up with projects that will work for the book. Sew I'm going to be busy, but it all sounds like fun to me. :D
