It’s time for Quilting Jetgirl’s 2019 Planning Party!  Are you participating?  You can find all the information over at her blog.

I took a look at my 2018 goals first, and it turns out, I didn’t accomplish many of them.  That’s okay.  This year ended up being extremely busy and sometimes life is like that.  I continued to create through out the year, and that’s what’s important to me.

My 2019 goals are:

  1. Finish 12 tops and 12 quilts
    • This is usually my goal for the year.  It’s broad enough to work on the my other goals, but helps to remind me to finish projects and quilts
  2. Make my father a quilt
    1. My plan is to make him a Marvel Superhero quilt using blocks from Fandom in Stitches.  I plan on doing this as a BOM
  3. Continue to link up to OMG and go back to linking up to SoScrappy
    1. I think I meet only one of my OMG in 2018.  I hope to do better in 2019.  I didn’t do the RSC in 2018 and I missed it.
  4. Work on my scrap bins
    1. this was a goal for last year.  I didn’t do much with it.  It’s an important goal for this year.  For the first time in my life, I will be moving to another state.  Moving is expensive.  I don’t want to move my bins of scraps if I am not going to use them.  I will, after all, make new scraps as I continue to quilt.  This ties into the goal above
  5. Machine quilt
    1. I purchased a new machine in 2018, partially so that I could machine quilt some of my own quilts.  I need to do so.
  6. Buy less
    1. This is probably more of a hope.  I don’t intend to track purchases, or in vs. out.  I think this goal is more about being mindful of what I have and using what I have before I buy more

Hopefully I’ll be able to carve out more quilting time in 2019.

Happy New Year!

  1. You have great goals, Mercedes!

    I have a quilting machine, and while I love it, the quilting part of quilt making is not my favorite. I wish I could afford to send everything off to a quilter. On the other hand, I quilt them like I want them done and I can only be disappointed with myself if it doesn’t turn out.
