To-make in 2010

One of our dear friends' birthday is coming up. And you know me....any excuse to go fabric-shopping :)
I got these wonderful solids on sale. Even better! I am going to use red for binding -I think. We'll see. Maybe I won't be able to finish on time, as there is a lot of stuff keeping me from my sewing machine these days.
But if I don't finish in time for the birthday, that's ok, we'll get another present, and I'll get to make and keep the quilt ;D

I did sort of ok reaching my quilting goals for 2009.

A quilt for both my children to put on their beds (check)
A sampler for me using fabrics from the wonderful Anne (didn't make it)

So...50%! I did do a lot of other sewing, you can see some of the finished projects here, and some of the quilting bee blocks here.

As far as 2010 goals....I want to:

Sew curtains for our living room
Put together my SewConnected 2 top and finish the quilt
Make myself a sampler quilt from the fabrics from the wonderful Anne
Make a picnic quilt (preferably before summer!)

...better stop here. I am also in a couple of quilting bees, so I have some fun times ahead :)

Yummy colors! I am working on the same pattern...top is done, backing is purchased, now I need to baste and quilt. Love to see others take on same design!
