My Plans For 2012

This year, I am not doing my usual to-do list of planned projects and goals.  Instead, I'm adopting a theme for my quilting and the theme is Project Fig Harvest.  I've challenged myself to "harvest" my stash of Fig Tree fabrics and patterns by focusing on projects that will use them.  This is less about stash reduction, more about using fabric that I like instead of putting it aside for I-don't-know-what-occasion. 

I've mentioned before that I have quite a lot of Fig Tree fabric in my stash..

...and patterns too. 

During the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, when I wasn't doing much quilting, I was giving this some thought and I have a couple of projects mentally planned out.  I even have an idea for a scrap quilt to use up the bits left over from the main quilts. 

But 2012 won't be all Fig Tree all the time.  I need to finish this year's school auction quilt before I start a new project and I want to make at least one more Christmasy quilt as well as put my Etchings fat quarters to work in something.  Sometimes, I can't stop myself from making to-do lists!


  1. It's funny to read your post because I too have so much Fig Tree fabric that i think it's time to make 2012 the year of the fig. Last week I cut out a cheaper by the dozen and have several kits I am planning to work on real soon. My problem is not knowing what to make out of these fabrics, it's that they are so pretty and i don't want to cut into them. I can hardly wait to see what you make out of your fabric.

  2. That is quite a bit of Fig Tree. I'm looking forward to your progress this year!


I love hearing from you - thanks for taking the time to leave a message.
