Goals for 2015

Kerry (who blogs at has posted her sewing goals for 2015 and is hosting a linky party, so here are my five goals/plans for 2015.

1. Make a quilt for my husband
We've decided on the Star Plus pattern, and, if I swap some smaller blocks for a larger block, I've got all the fabric. There was no reason not to start this straightaway but then goal 2 came along...

2. Make a quilt for a new great nephew
I found out that another great nephew will be making an appearance in January, so I might have to get this Nautical quilt made for him before starting goal 1.


3. Start something from the Millefiori quilt book
I've done a lot of EPP with hexies this year, so maybe it is time to try some different shapes.

4. Try some free motion quilting
My quilts so far have all been quilted with a walking foot, though I have added spirals to my straight line options. Perhaps 2015 will be the year I put the FMQ foot onto my machine and manage to make my attempts at feathers look less like cabbages that have gone to seed.

5. Restart my fabric fast
I've recently broke my fabric fast big style, but I will be restarting it again in January (note, I've not said January 1st - I might need to look at some sales and purchases of Liberty lawn will still be allowed).

It will be interesting to check back in a year's time and see how I did.


  1. I look forward to seeing you achieve these goals in 2015. Im going to try a fabric AND crafting materials fast in 2015 and also make all my cards. Not sure how its going to go (have been online today buying fabric to make stuff for Xmas next year), but. its got to worth a try

  2. You are rather ambitious! but I applaud your goals, and hope you do achieve them!

    And you are rather organised... I am slightly jealous of that bit, I just make it all up as I go along...

  3. Great list! You've planned things out well so your half way there already! Wishing you a wonderful 2015!

  4. Your list looks great.
    I have the Millefiory Quilt book as well, gorgeous design and great quilts are in the book indeed.
