Sewing Goals for 2015

I am not a big new year’s resolution person. Instead I choose topics to think about, work towards, or meditate on, but this year I do have some measurable goals for my sewing practice.

  1. Hand quilt something. Maybe something very small- a mug rug, a pin cushion. But hand quilt something.
  2. Quilt my Portland quilt. (uh, apparently I never even posted about that…but )
  3. Quilt my Botanics offset cross quilt.
  4. Take a long-arm certification class at Prairie Quilt to see if I like long-arm quilting.
  5. Learn how to use rivets in bag making.
  6. Make a sewing machine cubby.
  7. Show work in a quilt show. This is cheating because I know I’m showing something on the second weekend of January. I’m terrified; more about that later.
  8. Get more involved in my local quilt guild. Also cheating, because I was just elected to the board of my local quilt guild, haha.

I have some other goals that I want to define more and that are more personal to me. There are some items I want to design myself, which I’m sure will take some painful trial and error, but such is learning and growing.

2015 has been a blast. Can’t wait for 2016!
