2015 Sewing Goals

So.. as 2014 is drawing to a close it’s time to think about aims for next year and inspired by Kerry over at Pennydog here’s my list of sewing goals for 2015!

P1110456

1. Conquer precut fear- above is my current collection of precuts. 4 Layer Cakes, 3 Jelly Rolls and 13 Charm Packs. I did have more but I either gave or destashed some… They are pretty to look at butI hate the idea of wasting them on random things so they have just stayed in the drawer. I need to design patterns and use these up.

P11104502. Attempt more dressmaking- last year I did made a Ginger skirt, cut out a flora dress and modified the pattern for the Plaintain tunic but that’s it…. I really need to make the use of these patterns then I can get more 😉

3. Write/publish patterns- been thinking about this for a good while.. as it could help fund my fabric obsession and be a good way to get these ideas out of my head on to paper and actually made!

4. Try new quilting techniques- I really want to do a pixel quilt or applique art quilts to do with seals!

5. Get a good in the next FOQ entry- of course this means I’ll also need to design and make something for it too 🙂

P1110446In addition this is some of what is hanging on the back of my chair pieced quilts in various stages…. I really ought to get a move on and finish these!

P1110448And……….. some present additions this month 🙂

Is everyone managing to sew or partake in the sales? Don’t forget if you want to win some of Kerry’s fabric in the goal linkup you only have three more days 🙂

  1. You have some fabulous pieces of fabric there – I’m quite envious! I hope you find a use for them as it seems a shame to give them away just because you don’t know what to do with them. Pinterest is the answer!!

  3. Thank you for linking up, I can really recommend the books by the Lintotts to get you liking precuts- my first quilt was a jelly roll one.
