Publicly announcing some goals helps to hold one accountable and possibly even some public shaming (in jest), but when you walk along side a group of quilters or friends, it is easier to accomplish said goals!
How did I do with 2018? Any shaming to be deserved???
✔Goal #1 - two commissioned baby quilts
✔Goal #2 - three t-shirt quilts (The goal was three, I actually made 4)
This one had so many shirts I had to have some spill over to the back...
The fourth quilt was a Harley Davidson quilt, that somehow managed to get out of the house without a final photo...
✔Goal #4 - Farm Quilt
✔Goal #5 - Dresden/Tie quilt
✔Goal #6 - Ruler Class - I attended in February and have used my new skills, though not as much as I thought I would.
✔ Weekly Linky Parties & monthly Blog Hops;
✔ Continue Quilters Through The Generations series - I had 15 quilters stories, an average of more than one per month... however, I am in need of more quilters to be featured. You can email me at MelvaLovesScraps@NolanQualityCustoms.com if you are interested in documenting your family's story.
Accountability worked for me! No shaming needed. LOL!
Goals for 2019...
#1 - Assemble and complete the Sunbonnet Sue blocks that I got from Dave's aunt
#2 - Continue participating in weekly linky parties and monthly hops
#3 - Participate in two Block of the Month sew alongs...
One will be the 2019 Color Challenge hosted by Patterns By Jen
I am still looking for a second one... Suggestions???

I have enjoyed the sew alongs that I have participated in this year. I have been pushed to try new techniques and improve my skills. I even quit whining about all of the applique in the blocks in the It's A "Wild" Life BOM after four or five of them!
It doesn't mean that I am in love with applique, as some predicted may happen, but I don't even think twice about the technique now.
While my goal list may seem a little wimpy, I feel comfortable with them because the monthly hops will keep the creative juices going and plenty of opportunity for some No Guilt::Go Quilt days!
Happy New Quilt Year!
