Last year, I divided my quilting into categories and that seemed to work well for me. I am also a *list maker*. I take joy in being able to cross items off a list as done! So without further ado, here is
'Pat's Quilting Code of Conduct'
1. Promise Quilts and Things
I have already promised a few quilts to relatives, so this category stays. Recently a niece asked if I would sew her a Messenger Bag for her laptop. Hence, *and Things* added. I also have at least one carry-over quilt from 2009.
2. Gift Quilts
This is one of the main reasons *why* I quilt. Any occasion...birthday, anniversary, end of school, Christmas...I make a quilt. This is a keeper.
3. Donation Quilts and Things
In 2009 I donated quilts to Alycia's No Soldier Forgotten Quilt Drive. In 2009, the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild also started to collect quilts for Quilts of Valor. I'm thinking that the QOV's I make, I'll donate locally this year. I also volunteered to long arm quilt some of the Oconomowoc QOV's. I also hope to be able to make more children's donation quilts this year.
My day guild makes tote bags and comfort pillows for two local hospitals' Breast Cancer Care Units. I hope to continue to make the tote/pillow combination to gift to the patients.
4. Dinosaur Projects
ummm...projects older than the hills. High time that I un-earth some of my dinosaurs (or UFOs) and get them done!
I plan to continue with the weekly Stash Report over at JudyL's Patchwork Times. I like to track the fabric ins/outs. This weekly accounting also helps to curb uncontrolled buying on my part. Although, I have worked through quite a bit of the blenders in the stash~so they will need replenishing. :)
Another post without pictures...sorry...will have to see if I can remedy that by actually *doing something* quilt-y... :)
