My Quilting Resolution Blog Hop

Carla from Creatin’ in the Sticks is hosting this blog hop! It’s a one day blog hop … and all we have to do is fill in the blank for this statement:

My stitching resolution for 2021 is _____________________________.

Well, when I got to thinking about this statement, I thought:

  • do I fill in one word?
  • Or many words?
  • Do I talk about my lofty goals of reducing ALL my UFOs (highly unlikely)
  • Do I talk about what I’m going to try that’s new-to-me?

One word


Can you think of another word that would fit? I can’t!

Many words

Another 365 days of planning, creating, sewing and quilting!!! Sounds good to me!

And Blogging … yes … many many words are in my blog posts …

And continuing to designing EQ … here are some of the designs with Island Batik Fabric (and some of them did not come to be finished quilts …

And also learning more about and designing with Artistic Digitizer. These 3 pouches were designed by me!

Lofty goals

Along with PHD in 2021 – which includes finishing 12 UFOs … and completing NEW projects … is it remotely possible that I could finish ALL my UFOs? Now that would be LOFTY! A Dream … but who knows what this year will bring?

Something New to Me?

I’m going to join in Joyful Quilter’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I’ve joined the “Table Scraps Runner Challenge.” Sew … each month, I will make a table runner or a table topper or a mug rug … with each of the monthly colours.

Here’s what Joy says about the challenge: In the interest of fairness to ALL tables, the rules will include quilted mug rugs.  I know it’s a stretch from the standard table runner, but  those of us who live in small homes may not have use for a larger quilted runner or topper.

SEW … are you going to join me in this challenge????

    • Yeah Pam!!!
      And what a year you’ve had!
      I’m so happy that you feel your UFOs are under control – it feels GREAT, doesn’t it?
      Happy Quilting and Happy New Year!!!


    • Hi Joy!
      Thanks for hosting the Table Scraps Challenge! I’m looking forward to making some toppers that fit my own tables … and use up a bunch of scraps in the bargain!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. I like that word. QUILT The problem with that word is that there are so many individual processes that go along. It is the variety that got me into quilting in the first place. I hope to get a lot of it done and I hope you get lots done too.

  3. Your one word does say it all, but blogging, reducing UFOs, and trying new things seems to make it seem like a lot more to get done. Maybe just QUILT. lol Thanks for all the info and neat new things to try. Why do I not know about PHD? Writing it down now. Your page at the top isn’t operational, but maybe that’s on purpose until next year… Happy New YEar!

    • Hi Carla,
      Yup Quilt … that’s a goal!
      You didn’t know about PHD? It’s being going for 3 years now, 2021 will be it’s 4th year. I find that making myself finish what I start certainly helps to keep the UFO list decreasing instead of increasing each year! … Will check out the page at the top … thanks for the heads-up!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  4. Wow, I hope you get all your goals and UFOs completed Gail. I will be working along with you on my PHD in 2021!! And, I accept your challenge to join in the Table Scraps Runner Challenge! I love making mug rugs and small toppers, though I have an 84″ long table with the sides up! But I have lots of smaller tables that could use some love!

  5. I felt the same way when I was answering the question. Instead of one word I ended up with several paragraphs. You inspire me to make progress. I am in for PhD for 2021 and no dilly-dallying this year. Also looking forward to Round Robin Mystery.

  6. Fun! I’ve had varying success with RSC in the past, I’m not sure if I’m participating in 2021 but I love watching what others do. You will have a colorful table at the end of the year for sure!

  7. Great Resolutions and I hope you get all your UFO’s completed!!! I try really hard to complete a project before I start something else and yet have still ended up with several UFO’s!!!! Obviously as quilters we just can’t help ourselves!!! Have a wonderful 2021. Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    • Hi Susie,
      Well, making myself finish everything I start, certainly makes me think twice before starting a new project! Sure helps keep the UFO list from growing!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
