    1. My mom is 79 years old. When she was 6 or seven her grandmother gave her a modified double wedding ring quilt. The “melons” and “intersection” fabric didn’t lay flat, and though my Mom and Grandmother tried to remedy the problem the project never got finished. So, my goal is to finish this 70 year old project by Mother’s Day for my MOM! It’s an endeavor filled with challenges galore, but I’m determined to get it done!

  1. I want to sew more, and get better at it. I’d love to be able to find a group to be part of. I like sewing clothes and I don’t know anyone around here who likes to do that. But I will keep on, and I hope I get a little better with each thing I make. There is nothing like experience!

  2. I plan to start making next year’s Christmas gifts early. I also want to make a custom-fitted sloper for myself so I can start making my own clothes again (including bras). I’m really looking forward to getting a lot of sewing done in 2015! Thanks to Bernina for the awesome contests!

  3. I’m finishing my first quilt in January and and want to do two quilts with two different friends in 2015. Hopefully, I’ll have time to do at least one more before the end of the year.

  4. My sewing resolution is to sew more. I’m a beginner and I’d like to get better. If I could stick to sewing at least one garment a month for myself and my two daughters, I’d call that sewing success for 2015.

  5. I have 5 unfinished and forgotten quilts, and 4 that get active lovin’. I hate that I get so excited whey a new idea pops into my head; everything gets put on hold until I’ve purchased fabric. I hope to finish all of them by the end of 2015!

  6. My sewing resolutions for 2015 is to finish my 3 UFO’s, one dates back to 2004 and lacks the border (I really don’t like the quilt), another one to 2006 and all it lacks is to hand appliqué the border, and the last one is a round robin from 2007. I would also like to incorporate machine embroidery in my quilts like Amanda Murphy has in her quilts. Last but not least, is to improved my quilting skills by learning new techniques and stepping outside my comfort zone to work on more difficult patterns.

  7. In 2015 I hope to finish a number of WIPs. I also have two baby quilts to make early in the year. I’m hoping to donate at least 10 quilts to a Children’s Hospital. Maybe I’ll even get more done!

  8. My resolutions for 2015 are: finish more of my UFOs, learn how to machine applique, organize my scraps or give them away, start making Christmas gifts earlier. Thanks.

  9. First, Keep scraps organized as I go. They are all over the place and far too precious to just dump in a bag or box 🙂 Second, At least one day a week, work on one or more UFO’s and third, at least once a month, learn new a new garment sewing technique on my trusty Bernina 440 QE. There are more…but the list is so long I won’t bore anyone any further with it! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  10. First off, to finish up my WIP list, and then to go back to making garments, which I have not done for 30 or so years, and to learn to sew with knits. Here’s to a new shirt or skirt in 2015!

  11. My goal is to finish two UFOs, finish two new quilts, and quilt one of the great-grandmother’s tops that I inherited. By the end of the year, I will have five finished quilts.

  12. My 2015 sewing resolution is to finish wedding quilts for my children. So far I have one top done, one in process and another one not even started!

  13. Finish quilting 4 UFOs. Figure out my BERNINA 830 embroidery modifications. Do one embroidery project each month. Purge my stash. That should keep me off the streets for awhile 😊

  14. I’d like to step out of my comfort zone and utilize more than just the utility stitches on my machine. I’d also like to try free motion quilting on a small project. Being primarily a garment sewer, I don’t often have the occasion to do either of those things very often.

  15. I plan to complete two projects before I can start another. I’m coming out of a slump after losing my Mother. I would start a project from a class but not go back to it. I purchased a new Bernina 350QE. And go far things are rolling along. I never lost my passion, just concentration. 2015 – look out.

  16. I will strive to try new techniques, take some more sewing classes, and to complete two quilts. I am looking forward to all of these because of my B750 QE’s capabilities! I love this machine!

  17. Just registered to become a volunteer mentor for foster kids transitioning out of the foster care system. My goal is to find a way to make 26 quilts, one for each of these young people. I want to embroider inspirations all over the quilts to give them hope, strength, etc.
