Can you believe 2011 is almost here? Time flies and it especially seems to do so the older I get. I’ve been thinking a lot about the direction of my blog. There hasn’t been a lot of quilting I could share on here lately. Almost everything I’ve worked for what seems like months and months and months has been either for a magazine or for my next book. I’m quilting but I just can’t share any of it yet.
In 2011, the stash reports on Sundays will continue, as will the design wall posts on Monday.
I have a new quilt that I’ve written instructions for and I think maybe we’ll do that in February or March. You’ll get to see it ahead of time so it won’t be a mystery. I’ll probably do it more like a Quilt Along.
Another thing I’m thinking of doing and some of you may want to play along . . is to do a monochromatic type quilt each month. I’m thinking it would be easier as far as making a mess in the sewing room because I could pull one stack of fabric from one color, use it and then put the whole stack back. I was thinking I would put colors on pieces of a paper, put them into a bucket and draw a color for each month. Maybe odd numbered months could be monochromatic and even numbered months could be two color quilts where I would draw out two colors. Could be orange and purple! Could be anything! Of course, you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to do it.
Another focus is going to be on my UFO’s. My UFO list (part 1 and part 2) from 2007 has changed some. Hardly anything on part 1 is done and almost everything on part 2 is done. No telling how many more UFO’s have been accumulated since 2007.
No matter what direction the blog takes in 2011, I hope to have more quilting to share.
Have you thought about any quilting plans you have for 2011?
