2014 Quilt Goals

It’s hard to believe that 2013 is quickly coming to an end.  It was a year full of unexpected change for me and I am definitely looking ahead and planning for a fabulous 2014.  My overarching quilting goal for 2014 is to improve and expand my piecing and quilting skills.  To this end, I have a several objectives and each objective has action steps (did I mention I’m a professor?).

Objective 1:  Participate in activities that will lead to improved piecing skills.

  • Complete paper piecing the 2013 Lucky Stars blocks by the end of January 2014.
