16 Before 2016 Goal Setting Plus a Few More! Goal Setting

Sixteen finished quilts in 2016 sounds like a lot to do.  But when someone like me has 53 current projects on my WIP (Work in Progress) list, it should be a manageable task.  So here's what I'd like to accomplish for 2016:

1.  Finish Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Mystery Quilt, Allietare!  I have clues 1, 2, 3, and 5 complete.  I shall work on Clue 4 this week.

Winter Mystery 2015 - Allietare!

2.  Finish Celtic Solstice (Bonnie Hunter Mystery 2013).  The top has been complete.  The crazy pieced back still needs to be finished before quilting.

3.  Finish the brown/green/blue/cream 16-patch quilt that was part of a RSC15 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge, 2015) project.  The top is complete; the back is one fabric.  It needs to be longarmed.

4.  Finish longarming (Lisa) Customer's wall hanging quilt which is ON THE FRAME for some CUSTOM work!  This quilt will also need a binding even though it is a customer quilt.

5.  Finish December 2014 Block Lotto Big O blocks that I won 12.31.14!  The quilt has been put together as a top.  The back has been made (one fabric).  It needs to be longarmed and a binding.

6.  Finish a Customer's Flower Sampler quilt (Lisa).  This quilt needs to have the back made larger and then longarm quilted and binding.

7.  Finish a Customer's Christmas quilt (Lisa).  This quilt needs to have the back made larger and the longarmed quilted and binding.

8.  Finish Sew Sweet Simplicity (Customer Quilt) for Maxine.  The blocks are made and need to be put together and then longarmed and bound.

9.  Finish a baby quilt for our speech therapist that is due in June, 2016.  (Gender not announced yet.)

10.  Finish a baby quilt for Baby A for a family at church.  Baby is due in June, 2016.

11.  Finish a baby quilt for Baby B (yes, twins!) for a family at church.  Baby is due in June, 2016.

12.  Finish a quilt top for Julianne.  This will be one of my RSC16 projects.  The pattern we are using is called Soul Searching.  "Soul Searching" is a quilt design by Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession.

13.  Finally complete my Amanda Murphy Designs (ugly fabric quilt).  This quilt has been on my WIP list for far too long.  It's not ugly at all (it's just a fabrics that I got in a swap that someone else didn't like.  But that was way back in 2012! 

14.  Figure out how to sash and border and finish my kite girl quilt.  It was a RSC14 project.  I love these little kite girls!  They really deserve to be finished.

15.  Make a cute baby quilt out of these fabulous kite blocks.  Accuquilt sent me this kite die so that I could be a die tester.  I haven't finished the quilt yet.  I love these cheerful colors!  Now that my fabric scraps are sorted by color it should be a simple fix.  All I need to do is cut and sew!

16.  Finish a red/white/blue charity quilt that will be entered in a contest at the 2016 Spring Tea.  This quilt has not been started yet!  I just printed an envelopes pattern that will work. :)

17.  Finish this sweet 16-patch baby quilt.

18.  Complete this Country Roads Mini.  It was a mystery at Humble Quilts for 2015.

19.  Longarm and Customer's Flower Sampler quilt (Lisa) before summer.

20.  Longarm and finish a Customer's Christmas quilt (Lisa)


  1. You can do it!! And so can I! I only completely finished 4 quilty projects last year. I feel like a slacker after reading a couple other bloggers' new years posts that had finished in excess of 50 quilts in 2015, and not all small ones either. I suspect they have given up sleeping completely -- not a sacrifice I'm willing to make. ;-)

  2. That is a big list but I'm betting that you will have all or most of them done before the year is over.
