Can you believe it's officially 2014? I'm not usually one to make New Year's resolutions, but this year I set myself a few sewing goals for the year, specifically sewing for the home.
|Time to replace this quilt with a handmade one.|
About a month ago I realized I've never made a quilt for myself. I really had to stop and think about it, but it's true. Every quilt has been a gift for a friend or family member.
My husband has asked me a few times when I'm going to make a quilt for our bed, and it seems like I've always had other projects that topped my list instead. So in 2014, it's time. I've decided to embark on a king quilt project.
I have a quilt pattern picked out, and this fall began to amass a range of fabrics. I've always been attracted to batiks, and both my husband and I like blues and greens, so the quilt will be made primarily of those colors, with pops of other color here and there.
I've also set myself a goal of completion by May 1. I'm a deadline-oriented person (which comes in handy in my profession), to the point where I work best when there's a set deadline. Whether I meet my May deadline or not (I plan to!) I know setting one will keep me on track.
