Quilting in 2012

Looking forward to 2012.  Now that my sewing room is better organized and I know what I have in my stash, I look forward to continuing my monthly project outline:

1) Complete 1 UFO each month  - this can mean that I complete a block for one of the 3 or 4 BOM's I started and never finished, I complete a top, I get borders on an existing top, etc
2) Start a new quilt with the caviat that I must finish the new quilt  before starting another
3) Participate in on-line sew alongs and swaps
4) Complete monthly project for my quilt guilds.

At the moment, this list seems a bit daunting, but I am inspired by members of my guilds.  These are some extremely prolific and talented quilters/artist.  I found 2 on-line sew alongs that I will participate in.

The first is from the Craftsy Site - they have a BOM that looks interesting.

 The 2nd is a sew along that has monthly projects that should help reduce my scrap stash.  I have added the button under the TMQG button.  Please feel free to browse.

Those who know me know how this will go.  I will start out full steam ahead and by the 3rd or 4th month, I will lose interest and move on.  So I am depending on my followers and fellow quilters to nudge me along to ensure I complete my goals.

To my fellow bloggers, can you recommend some swaps?  There are so many out there.

Happy New Year to all!!

Happy quilting, sewing, knitting, crafting to all.
