Quilts to Make and Things to Learn in 2014

I'm writing this post for December 25 and thinking that the year is almost over. One of my new year's resolutions is to spend more time quilting. I just love it so much and it makes me happy. Here are a few quilts I want to make and a few things I'd like to learn:


A few quilts I'd like to make: 

A scrappy log cabin quilt (I like this one- Scrappy Log Cabin Baby Quilt - by Audrie of Blue is Blue) 


A coin quilt (Sliced Coin Quilt by Cindy at Hyacinth Designs)



A low volume quilt like this one (Cath at Wombat Quilts made this gorgeous Log Cabin quilt)



Or this one (The incredible lightness of being... low volume, by Lynne at Pieceful blog)


A few other quilts that I'd like to make are:


A quilt with All Solids (such as this one from Needles Pins and Baking Tins) 


A quilt using only tiny bits and pieces of scraps (like this one, Scrap Vortexfrom Crazy Mom Quilts)  

(All photos used with permission)


Techniques or things I'd like to learn:
  • free motion quilting
  • how to get better at selecting fabrics
  • time-saving techniques - such as more piecing and less pinning!

I'm sure I will think of more ideas...this is just a start. What are your next year's resolutions?

-Ellen
