Goals for 2013

Here's what I'd like to accomplish with my quilting in 2013, in no particular order:
1. Improve my machine quilting.  Specifically, I'd like to experiment with a variety of threads, improve my free-hand feathers, and maybe try out some different types of batting. Here's some metallic thread that I am admiring, but I haven't used yet.

2.  Put my work in more shows.  I'd like to enter Sacred Threads (already have the entry done!), NQA (the top is pieced, just have to quilt and bind it), and maybe a few more.  Here's my entry for Sacred Threads, tentatively titled "Leaping People".

3.  Try teaching some quilting classes.  I did a demo for my Modern Quilt Guild, and it was so much fun that I'd like to try teaching.  Out of the 3 goals, this seems the most challenging, but putting it in writing makes me committed to giving it my best effort.
4. Finish 4 quilts in the Tree Series.  So far I have 1 top pieced, and the next one started.  Tree 2 and 3 are merely ideas at this point, so this is a pretty ambitious goal. 

What goals have you set for 2013?

  1. You should call this "Leap of Faith". Thanks for sharing a beautiful quilt.
