New Year's Resolutions? Nah. I don't think so. Not this year. Oh, maybe I do have one. I will make an effort not to use so many exclamation points when I write.
However, the New Year does make me start thinking of all the quilt projects I would like to tackle. My head is full of ideas. I want to start collecting more American Jane fabrics, designed by Sandy Klop. I love those primary colors she uses and recently saw a gorgeous quilt made up of hundreds of nine patch blocks using her fabrics. I just finished putting the binding on the quilt below, which uses many American Jane fabrics.
I want to do a bed sized quilt using the new Primitive Gatherings collection, Lakeside,Gatherings which is all yellows, greys, blacks and creams. Navys too, but I am not going to use those. I have something in mind with loads of half square triangles for that group.
I also want to do more curved piecing and also more blocks that use templates to create unusual designs.I would like to do a log cabin style quilt in 2015. And for sure I want to do something that will use all those Denyse Schmidt fabrics I have been collecting. Maybe I will get to it all this year, maybe not. But it sure is fun to dream about it. (Whew, I wanted to use an exclamation point at the end of that sentence, but I restrained myself).
I can tell you what I won't be doing. No more Block of the Month projects. I swear I have three or four incompleted BOMs sitting in project boxes out in the garage, and they are never going to be finished. I did join the Kim Diehl Simple What Nots Club through Fat Quarter Shop and will receive a little mini kit each month to make a small quilt, but I am not going to feel pressured to actually do it in the month I receieve it. No stress to meet a deadline, that sounds appealing.
I am definitely open to doing some sew alongs though, and am looking forward to what might pop up this year on the internet.
How about you? Do you have any sewing plans rattling around in your head?
