One of my biggest goals I am working on for 2017 is to get good enough at my quilting that I can quilt for others as well as designers.
I have taken a notebook and started planning some of my goals for next year.
Practice quilting designs daily. One thing I will do is have a notebook handy and practice drawing quilting designs. I have a big stack of quilts to practice on.
Another thing I will do is some whole cloth quilts. I will draw out areas on the quilt and do different designs.
Also make a notebook of quilting samples. This let's me show people what I can do and gives them a closer look at my work.
Pattern testing for designers. I did some of this in 2016 and want to do it again. I found it was hard to keep up with several at one time, along with full time work. This year I will schedule my time better. And if I know we are getting swamped at work, I know not to try to do too many.
I also want to publish 2 patterns I have been working on.
In 2016 I participated in a new bloggers hop. I had so much fun and learned a lot. I want to apply again, and really improve my blogging skills.
I will also be sharing more tips and techniques on my blog throughout 2017. And would like to do more tutorials.
I am linking up with Yvonne @quiltingjetgirl.com and her 2017 planning linky party.
