2017 quilting/blogging goals

I have a hard time setting and meeting goals, however I know that if I plan then things really do go better for me. I think the reason I have a hard time planning, is because I just want to do everything.

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.

I want to make a metro medallion quilt by @sewkindofwonderfuljenny. I love using their quick curve ruler.

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 and her 2017 planning linky party.


  1. It is a good idea to publicly state your intentions because I find it gives you accountability as you say. Good luck with your goals for 2017!

  2. I wish you the best with your goals in 2017. I love the quick curve ruler too.

  3. These are wonderful goals, Kathy, and I wish you a creative and fulfilling year as you work on them. Thank you for linking up and Happy New Year!
