For 2013 there were just 3 major goals
- Finish 10 quilts
- Start 8 quilts
- Manage the stash
Two of the five finishes were actually on my "to be finished" list. There were 8 other quilts on that list that didn't get done. But the five finishes this year are definitely better than just the three finishes in 2012. Now that I have momentum on my side, 2014 will be even better.
Being a faithful follower of Cat Patches' 2013 NewFO Challenge, I started 12 quilts this year.
That's four more quilts than I had planned to start this year, which is also four more than were started in 2012. I stuck pretty close to my list for 2013, only one quilt on the list wasn't started. I finished two of the new starts this year, while none of the 2012 NewFOs got finished in 2012. So even more momentum for 2014.
Applying the glass half full stance to the Stash Management goals is a bit hard, I didn't meet a single goal. But I did use more stash in 2013 than I ever have before, so that's definitely a bright spot. I didn't buy as much fabric as I did in 2012, so there is definite momentum moving into 2014 on that front as well.
The 2014 goals look a lot like that 2013 goals:
- Finish 10 quilts (5 UFO's and 5 of the 2013 NewFOs)
- Start 8 quilts as part of the 2014 NewFO Challenge (list is here)
- Stash Management
Starting the 8 quilts will be the easiest goal to meet. Finishing 10 quilts would be a personal best, the most I've ever finished in a single year is 7. But I'm hopeful, one quilt just needs the binding added, another is pieced and just needs a back, one other has all the blocks made, it just needs to be set. I'm joining Lynn's "Something Old, Something New" challenge for 2014. I'm not too sure about the something new part of the challenge, but I am going to use the something old part of the challenge to keep me motivated to tackle those UFOs.
- Use 75 yards
- Buy less than I use
- Organize what I have
