2017 Planning Party

Can you believe its that time of year already?  I sure can't.  The time is flying by at the speed of light, and speaking of spead, I'll be linking up with Yvonne over at Quilting Jetgirl for her 2017 Planning Party.  I participated last year and did okay with my 2016 plans.  Several items on my goal list were completed, some are still works in progress, and a few got dropped by the wayside. 



I looked over last years list and have moved a few things to my 2017 list and added a few more.  So, without anymore delay (drumroll please), here is my list of 2017 quilty goals:
  • Meadow Mystery Quilt - this is ongoing and will finish up in April 2017.  I plan getting it quilted before we leave the summer.  We'll be campground managers for another year at Cape Perpetua on the Oregon coast.
  • 2017 Stash Bee - I'm in Hive 5 and so excited to be a part of this group.  I plan on making the requested block each moth and getting it mail off on time. 
  • Mighty Lucky Quilting Club - I've joined this club for 2017 and also very excited to be participating.  I plan on staying on top of this each month.  
  • Make 3 Quilts of Valor quilts during the year. 
  • Make 1 baby quilt to donate.
  • Make 1 English paper pieced La Passacaglia rosette each month.
  • Make 1 redwork block each month.
  • Design and make a quilt to enter into a quilt show.  This is a scary one.
  • Complete my project for the Alison Glass Challenge Linky Party which will end January 31, 2017.
  • Pins and Needles Quilt and Needle Art Show - Be successful as our local quilt guild's quilt show intake coordinator.  This is my first year in this position and it is going to keep me very busy during the months of January and through the show which is from February 17th through February 19th. 
That's it.  Do you think I've taken on too much for 2017?  I probably have, but I like a challenge and to think BIG.

  3. I always plan on doing to much as well. I think your list is quite doable. I should have put the Alison Glass Challenge on my list but that's o.k. I'm planning on doing it anyways. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make.

    1. Hi Lisa, having too many goals gives you options. When I'm not in the mood to work on a current project I'll go to my planning list and pick something from it to work on.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Tami. I do a lot of piecing and handwork in our 27 ft. 5th wheel when traveling and do all my free motion quilting in our 38 ft. 5th wheel we live in.

    1. Hi Kate and thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment. It would be nice to complete all my goals for 2017. It may be wishful thinking.

  6. Lots of big goals. Entering a quilt show is fun, designing your own quilt adds to the ante. Good Luck! I was apparently late signing up for Stash Bee, but loved being involved the past two years. It is a very good group.

    1. How exciting Sharon that you won the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club membership. I can't wait for it to start. We will most likely be in Pahrump, NV (our home base) for the winter. Last winter we went down to Arizona for a week and enjoyed it.

    1. Hi Anita and thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog post. It would be nice if I could reach all those goals, but that is probably wishful thinking. I always add extras in case I get bored with what I'm working on. :)

  13. Your goals sound realistic and manageable...and your summer job sounds intriguing, too. Will you be able to stitch much then? Best of luck in 2017.

    1. Thanks Jennie. I will be able to do some quilting during the summer. I usually just use my Featherweight in our little 5th wheel, but do take my Bernina with us. May you have a GREAT 2017.
