          It has taken me a long time to start quilting. I finally just took the plunge. I’ve only created 5 quilts (crib size). Each time I believe I have gathered courage and gotten a little better on each quilt. You just have to DO IT! Good Luck :)

      I enjoy your quilts & inspiration! Am looking forward to doing the 2019 BOM with your hints and instructions, as well as maybe seeing some of the fellow quilters that have completed there’s. While I am inspired by your color choices I think I will try my own color combinations to use up some of my fabric stash, that seems to become overwhelming. Of course I’m sure that I will have to purchase some to match. Your sponsors have been a great source for my bulging stash!

    In 2019 I would like to be able to spend much more time in my sewing 🧵 room actually sewing 🧵 and quilting. I have 3 machines and an embroidery machine. Seems like every time I get down there and start a project, someone finds a way to help them with their own projects for the day! I want this year to be my project year!

    I would like to get started on my “Save The Bees”’quilt and hopefully work on it while we are in Pendaries NM this summer. We go in our RV. My sisters in law and I made chicken pincushions last year… all the sewing done outside on my “traveling” sewing machine! People got a kick out of that!
    Happy Sewing/Crafting!

I would also like to get control of my house in 2019. In 2017 and 2018, depression became a problem and I sewed my way out by making 10 quilts for Lutheran World Relief in 5 months, but fabric and supplies “took over the house”. I have been sewing in the garage because “stuff” has overtaken the whole upstairs, including a sewing room with Koala cabinets, etc., the dining room and everywhere. Goal for 2019, get back to sewing in the “sewing room”!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog this year. Even though, thanks to my machine being down since mid December, when I had my quilting schedule set to finish Bees, it will be finished. It is a gift for a little one who loves things that fly.
    This next year i had not thought of doing something “new” so much. In my sixties, I have accomplished much of what I have wanted to learn and try. If it uses needle, thread or fiber, I have tried it, reaching high levels of difficulty in sewing, design (costume for stage), knitting, crochet, embroidery, crewel, needlepoint, cross stitch. The final item I took on and have loved most is quilting. This I am still learning and will always be a student of new ideas in this arena.
    What one thing I most want to learn is to freemotion quilt, to make the quilting designs and swirls that enhance and compliment the design piece work of the quilt.
    I want to make each of my family a beautiful work of art for their bed that will be treasured for years to come.

I made three quilts for Christmas and being able to how FMQ would have finishing them up a lot faster. Actually, I have gotten into making quilts in the last couple of years and that is cause of being able to make them in the embroidery hoop. But, I have been hooping them and doing the FMQ by embroidery, which is a long process. So, I would like very much like to learn FMQ.

    What I would like to accomplish in the new year- is being more organized & need to stop and sort through all my quilting projects to determine if I need to let it go or actually get it finished. I’m easily distracted by shining objects (so many ideas & never enough time), but I am hoping to see a lot of the PhD(s)completed this year (at least 1 every month)! I feel my biggest weakness is ANYTHING quilt related that is FREE or ON SALE!

      depending on the quilt, applique over the hole. If pieced, unsew at a seam close to the hole, I like to use used material for the repair so it will not show up too much. New material will jump out and say “HERE I AM” .

    I have recently retired from nursing and moved to France so my want to do list is a long one, but most of all I would love to learn the techniques for making landscape quilts. The blog is so helpful, interesting and reassuring in its home and family love based theme. I made the Save the Bees quilt for my sister in law who works as a bee inspector for the government. It was a fantastic design and an ideal gift for her, thank you so much.

    I’d like to learn to be confident at needle-turned appliqué. Right now, I convert my appliqué patterns to interfaced and top stitched appliqué. It is still pretty; but I’d like to be just as comfortable at both forms. My other goal for this year is to spend more time doing embroidery that I then put into quilt blocks. I already embroider and cross stitch a lot; but I want to learn more embroidery stitches to make my work look more delicate and complex. I have greatly enjoyed the Save the Bees quilt along. Thank you for the free patterns and the wonderful opportunity to see how others incorporate their fabric choices into your beautiful patterns. Many thanks, and God bless.
