Last year in January I told you that my quilting goal for the year was to stitch something every day. You can read about that here. I kept it up for about 6 months, longer than most of my goals last, but not long enough to have achieved what I set out to do. So this year I have, surprise surprise, the same goal! And unlike last year, I didn't fail on the very first day! I am 3 days into the goal and right on track. I also christened 2009 the year of the mini quilt. I made a handful, but nowhere near what I had envisioned, so I am going to steal from myself and call 2010 the year of the mini quilt. Again. And guess what? I have already made one and have it up on the wall!
January 1st I made the top ...
and on the 2nd quilted and bound it.
It is called a Wave Runner quilt, and a lot of us in blogland have joined in the Wave Runner Quilt Along fun! Go have a look at Victoria's blog called Bumble Beans Inc and be prepared to be inspired! I can promise you that the technique is super duper easy and SO much fun!
I am thinking that if I were to take a photo of what I stitch every day, that would motivate me to both stitch more, and blog more. I hate to make that a goal for the year - I'm not going to say that I will post every single day, but I will make it an 'unofficial' goal:)
My gallery of quilts in my hallway is growing...Can you imagine if I were to make one a week for a year? That's 52 mini quilts for my gallery. A lofty goal indeed, but then, January is always full of lofty goals!
Back tomorrow with pics of another mini quilt I have started, and this time it has applique, my very favorite kind of quilting.
