2020 Quilting Goals

Quilting Jet Girl is having a planning party, so even though I haven't even finished my goals for 2019, I am looking ahead to the next year to decide what my goals should be. I tend to do things out of order anyway, and when there are prizes involved, well, how can I resist?

1. The first goal I have is to tame the scraps. I have emptied a few scrap boxes so far this year, and I would like to continue that process next year. My end of the year goal is to have 1 (one, yes only ONE) scrap box by the end of the year. A reasonable size box; no stuffing all the scraps in a refrigerator box allowed!

2.  Clean the sewing room every month.  I am still in the process of going through every.single.thing in the bedrooms, and I want to keep it in some sort of order by making sure that I keep going back to keep them tidy. It isn't reasonable to say I will always keep them clean so once a month sounds reasonable.

3.  Keep making a mini a month, allowing for exceptions for busy times. These little quilts keep the joy in quilting.

4.  Keep stitching 15 minutes a day.  It keeps me sane and gives me permission to take time out for me.

5.  Move quilts forward, preferably to completion.  I have a bunch of quilts in progress and I want to make sure that they don't stagnate.

6. Keep having fun. This means that if any of the other goals cause any stress, I can focus on another, or even, gasp, start a new quilt!

Making a mini per month would be fun. I specially like #6 :)

All great goals. I really like the mini a month and #6. Beginning a new quilt always makes things better, right?

Rachel said...

Great set of goals! What do you do with your mini quilts? I especially like your final goal and the way you've given yourself permission to move on if you start something that you don't enjoy.

A rational list of goals for 2020. I'm still trying to decide what I want for next year considering I've not met most of my goals the last few years.

I agree so much that smaller makes are joyful. Thank you for linking up and I hope that you have a wonderful 2020 as you work on your goals.

#6 seems to be the important one. If you're not having fun, the rest don't matter.

I am laughing so much at the image of a refrigerator box full of scraps! But I think your goal of a single small box is a good one

These are great goals! I hope you have a great end of 2019 and start to 2020!

Wishing you well on your goals, they sound doable. Especially love the mini idea and taming the scraps!
