2009 New Years Goals - Part 1

Quilt Pixie's post on Sunday December 28th started me thinking about what my goals were going to be for the coming year in relation to my quilting projects. One goal that I do have for 2009 is to actually finish the quilting on my very first quilt that I started to make about 6 years ago. I took a series of classes to learn the basics and got it as far as making the quilt sandwich and then froze. I was afraid of ruining it and packed it away. So it's time to bring it out of hiding and finish it.

This morning I actually took the quilt out of the box and took this picture. I'm surprised I was able to find it so quickly so it really must be time to get it finished. The pale areas in the main body of the quilt (top centre square, left centre square and right centre long narrow strip) are going to have some embellishment work done once the quilting is done.

Tomorrow I will post the rest of my goals for the New Year. I starting thinking about them last night and I think it's going to be a busy year.

what a great "first quilt" -- looks like it'll be fun to go back to and spend time with :-)
