Happy New Year!! What are your resolutions for 2015? (A Contest)

Well, 2014 is behind us.   That's really hard to believe.  It seems like it flew by.  I can honestly say I didn't do anything spectacular or memorable in 2014.   Is that a bad thing?   Maybe, maybe not.   I do have some resolutions for 2015, though.

#1.  I would like to finish at least one quilt project a month for me or my family.

#2. I would like to gain at least one new quilt customer per month in 2015.  I'm still working on the best way to do that.  I am getting more likes on my Facebook page, and a few more subscribers to this blog; so maybe I'm on the right track.

#3.  I would like to enter at least one quilt competition this year.   I said that last year, and even pieced a stunning top, but never finished it or did anything further.

My wishes for 2015, which are not the same as resolutions because they probably are impossible, include:

#1  Gaining enough quilting business to quit my teaching job and just work part time at Joann Fabrics.

#2  Losing 40 pounds without starving or exercising.

#3 Convincing my husband that we need to go on a real vacation this spring or early summer- camping or to the beach or out west somewhere

What are your resolutions?  What are your wishes?  Post your responses below.  One lucky person will win a free edge to edge quilting job (or half price on custom quilting).  That's what Vickie did to get her Santas quilted last month. 


  1. My resolutions for 2015 are as follows:
    #1 Use the fabric I've got, and it's a lot. No more shopping until the stash is under control.
    #2 Finish up some of the UFO's, and that too is quite a lot.
    #3 Get rid of used patterns or tools that I will not be wanting or using anymore.
    These are only the quilting resolutions. Let's don't get started with the weight loss or clearing out old clothes and shoes.

  2. My Resolutions for 2015
    1) Get Organized and tidy up!
    2) Keep learning and experiencing new things.
    3) Finish sewing projects and quilts.
    4) Be the best Me that I can be for my family!
    And for the wishes:
    1) I wish everyone could stop, and see the beauty that God created for us.

  3. I have been quilting for 7 years now going on 8. Love making quilts it's great therapy.

  4. I want to spend more time with my sewing machine! I am learning to free motion on my domestic machine and it takes practice!

  5. I want to learn more advanced quilting patterns. I find myself using the same patterns and not willing to learn the more difficult ones.

  6. My NY goals... I say goals not resolutions so I am more inclined to continue them past I am a new quilter in 2014, began quilting last year self taught so far.
    1. Learn and complete free motion quilting.
    2. Join a quilting guild, or monthly quilting group.
    3. Make one new quilt project a month.
    4. Walk 3-4 times a week.
    5. Reduce my eating out to 1x a week.
    6. Spend one day a month for quality family time.( it is difficult to take an entire day and not worry about laundry or what needs to be done.)

    1. I forgot to add my email is Thank you.

  7. My New Years resolutions are (in no particular order) :-)
    1. Slow down! Enjoy my days, dont stress over the little stuff
    2. Less time at work, more time with family and my grandbabies.
    3. Tackle existing quilt projects and utilize my stash more!
