Gearing up for a Great Year.

Back in early November of year I posted about my Out of Control UFO's - the list was pretty epic.  I had 10 things listed that were started, partially finished or almost done.  I am so happy to say that list has been cut down by a whopping two projects, but its still better than none getting completed.

My 2013 quilting goal is to make and FINISH 5 quilts this year and I am confident that I am going to be able to reach that goal (mentally I need a few finishes - I think we all know how that feels!) and I would like to knock off at least 5 of my WIP's from last year off my list.  That gives me a grand total of 10 quilts/runners that I would love to have off my WIP/to make pile and onto my finished list.

As I said the other day one of my NEW projects is my Hemming Diamonds quilt:

I also have the two quilts I would like to make for my girls when they get their bunkbeds (which will be a process in it of itself but I am up for the challenge!) along with at least one or two scrappy type quilts from the book Sunday Morning Quilts.

My Step-Sister Sherry, from B.S. Crafts was in town this week from Winnipeg for her brothers wedding on New Years Eve (fantastic night was had - they had a beautiful wedding, threw a fantastic reception and I'm so glad that we were able to share in their special day with them) and I was able to impart some of my quilting knowledge on her and her sister today.  I forgot how awesome it is to just sit and talk with someone (or someones) about quilting and have them actually really enjoy themselves (or at least pretended they were enjoying themselves, they seemed interested at least!!).  Sherry is just getting into quilting and it was so awesome to share with her some quilts that I have made or am in the process of finishing and actually be able to answer some of her questions on quilting like I actually knew what I was talking about.  ;)  It inspired me to get to work on my WIPs and hopefully be able to show her (and all of you) more finishes in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by - see you tomorrow!


  1. Happy New Year, Kari. That diamond quilt is going to be beautiful. I have "Sunday Morning Quilts" too. I've started one quilt from the book and it's currently one of my UFOs, haha.

  2. That is really going to be a wonderful quilt.
