13 IN 13


Happy New Years quilting friends.  Do you make quilting resolutions for the new year?  No new projects until old ones are complete; no new swaps until BOBs from old ones are put together; less fabric buying, more stash using;  keeping up with BOMs and BOWs; etc., etc.

There are yahoo groups to help you -- Stashbusters and Work in Producers to name two.  Last year there was a group doing BOM Rehab.

This year I'm trying something new, 13 in 13.  That's 13 finishes in 2013.  Doesn't matter how many a month, old or new, large or small, knit, quilt, whatever.  Just FINISH 13 projects in 2013.

I have at least 10 quilt tops that just need quilting and binding.  I've put them off hoping for a new machine with a larger harp area.  But doesn't look like that is happening anytime soon, so...............  I've done twin size on my little 6" area.  But many of my tops are queen sized.  Maybe I should concentrate on smaller projects, given the limitations of my equipment.  Or getting good at quilt as you go.  Hmm...............

My friend Carol and her daughter-in-law Donna came up with the idea of encouraging each other in finishes this year.  Anyone want to join us? 

Feel free to snag the photo for the theme for your blog.
