Well, I thought I’d set some goals for this year. I’m not making resolutions, because I always break them by the end of January. So these are goals. Totally different…!
Goal 1: Learn to FMQ
This is the biggie – I really want to have the option of doing something other than straight-line quilting.
So by the end of 2010, I’d like to have FMQ-ed a quilt that I’m giving away as a gift. That means not only do I have to be able to FMQ, it has to look good enough to be given away.
Goal 2: Learn new techniques
I’d like to try appliqué, paper piecing and hand quilting. I’d also like to attempt a skirt and learn to crochet.
I’m going to set myself a challenge of making at least one item from every book I got at Christmas. I picked the books because they covered the areas I’d like to learn, so making something from each one should cover this goal.
Goal 3: Make a bigger quilt
So far, my quilts have been pretty small ( I think the biggest has been about 1.2m long) so I’d like to make at least a single bed sized quilt.
So there we have it. My goals for 2010. Now, I just have to find my FMQ foot. I put it somewhere safe when my friend came round with her kids, but I can’t remember where that was! DOH!
