Goals? Really? - 14 in 2014 Planning

I've been whittling down the massive basket of UFOs and working on my 14 in 2014 project.  Looking at this picture that I took around the first of November, I see a few quilts that are actually finished!  Woo Hoo!  But here it is the 10th of the month, so I suppose I should figure out what I plan to work on in February.  And it's a short month too, so I'd really better get on it.

The bookshelf quilt is all sandwiched and ready to quilt, so I think I can finish this one this month.

I even made a pieced back for it from a layer cake my friend gave me.  In fact, it was one of the quilts I practiced spray basting with at the January ECMQG meeting, so it's sitting there all ready and waiting.  It will be good to get it done.

I'm feeling the need to do some piecing, so rather than start a new project, I think I will try to finish this one.  This Breath of Avignon quilt has been sitting in this exact state for more than 2 years, so I think it's time to get it out and play with it.  Hopefully it will be an easy finish and the remaining piecing will satisfy that need I have to start something new.  I really don't need to start something new just now, although it would be a blast.

So, if I can finish 2 more quilts in February, that would leave 10 to finish in the final 10 months of the year, which should be pretty doable.  I hope.

So, I'm off to get creative.

TTFN (as Tigger says).


  1. You're off to a good start. I'm on the same mission. I started last
    year, and made some good progress, so I'm continuing the momentum into 2014.

  2. Lovely quilts and great goals! I spray baste all my quilts.....works well for me!

  3. I have lots of projects like that too - finding the time to actually quilt a whole quilt is the challenge. Good luck, I"m looking forward to seeing what you finish!
