My first goal for 2009 is to finish up Work in Progress. That would be Dressed for Dinner and Robbing Peter to Pay Paul.
I’d also like to start a Thimbleberries quilt, Winter Memories– start being the key word here. I don’t know that I will be able to finish it this year. It is a combination piecing and applique pattern.
I’m also going to challenge myself to do that River Walk art quilt I was thinking about last year. I’ve learned a lot in the last year that I would like to incorporate into it. I’m also thinking that means I should spend some time at the River Walk collecting inspiration too, right?!! Sounds like a good idea to me!
And lastly, I’m going to post monthly about techniques that I am learning from The Art of Manipulating Fabric. I’m not going to create a finished piece each month with the technique, but I will just do some practice pieces and post photos of those.
****Edited to add: I forgot to mention I also plan to learn to make T-shirt quilts this year… another reason to hang out at the River Walk: collecting t-shirts!! ;-)****
I am looking forward to 2009. It promises to be a quilty year!
