A Quilter's New Year's Resolution

The holidays are over, and my quilting studio is like a scene from a horror movie!  There are bits and pieces of fabric, batting, and thread strewn across the room from my last minute gift-making done in a hurry.

So for 2010 I am going to be bold and have 2 resolutions.  One is to keep my studio clean, and two is to clean out my stash!  I think I may take the prize for stash overload.  I’ve got stacks and stacks of fabrics that I just HAD to have, and bins and bins of fabrics that were intended for great projects!

I enjoyed making small projects for Christmas so much, that I think this is how I am going to tackle my stash problem going forward.  I want to find more fun, easy, small projects that can be done in an hour or two that make great gifts.  My family and friends enjoyed my handmade gifts so much, and I enjoyed making them.

Mini-PursesOne of our gals in the Sample Room, Jean, made these little purses for Christmas gifts and I just adore them.  I think these could become another addiction for me like the coasters were.  Watch out stash, here I come!  Bit by bit I may be able to make space for more new fabric!

Anyone else have a Quilter’s New Year’s Resolution?  I’d love to hear from you and know I’m not the only messy-studio crazy woman around!

Happy New Year and Happy Quilting!

  1. Oh my, I would love to second those resolutions but…..I need to work in chaos and as hard as I try to work through older fabrics….newer ones keep showing up at my door!

  2. Those are drop dead darling! And I love how those snaps look so fabulously professional. I want to make some of these, too. And who cares how neat your sewing room is? Nobody will notice when they see the great stuff you’re making. Hip hip hooray! Another great project!!!
