Last month I said that I was going to drop my goal of reducing the number of UFO projects. Just tracking my projects helps me keep some sort of control over the new projects that I start. So in this post I'm going to wrap up December and talk about my goals and projects for 2019.
My goals for December were:
- bind Indonesian Batik (didn't happen)
- make labels for Antelope Canyon and Indonesian Batik (didn't happen)
- finish the last set of Christmas postcards (Done!)
- make veterans quilt kits (well underway)
- make placemats with the last of the leftover Indonesian batik fabric (Done!)
Instead of finishing the batik quilt I made 4 veterans quilts because I'm doing a program on veterans quilts for my quilt club next week. I also quilted 4 other veterans quilts.
Here are my stats for 2018:
Starting UFO 15
Finished YTD 4 (Goal 12)
Started YTD 6 (Planned 6)
Ending UFO 17 (Goal 9)
Veterans YTD 22 (Goal 40)
Fabric Postcards 150
Pet Beds 2
Placemats - 16
Chair cushions/pillows - 3
Potholders - 3
Big Fabric Flowers
Quilted for others - 2
I expect to have more time in 2019 so I'm hopeful that I'll get more of my projects finished this year. I'm dedicating the beginning of the year to veterans quilts. Over the next few days I'll have 4 designs to share that I made for my program next week and I have a few more ideas percolating.
I'm also planning to be more dedicated to learning Electric Quilt. I bought some workbooks for EQ8 that I'm going to work through.
On the longarm, next up is to re-load and finish Lost My Marbles. Does anyone even remember that one? But the one goal that I do want to set for the year is to get my 2 mosaic projects done.
My specific goals for January are:
- finish 4 veterans quilts
- bind and label Indonesian Batik
- label for Antelope Canyon
- possibly start a foundation piecing project, I have a couple of choose from'
- resume quilting Lost My Marbles
- 3 EQ lessons
