During the break between Christmas and New Year's,
I finished a quilt I started almost 7 years ago.
This is Gather Around by Debbie Roberts.
It was fun to revisit some of the fabrics I used from my extensive reproduction fabric stash.
My motivation was to be able to quilt it!
my goal for this year is to work on finishing some things and de-stash,
just like every year!
But, I am off to a good start.
My reward...I get to start a new quilt for my granddaughter.
A very modern quilt that will have lots of open space for quilting.

I am happy to report that I found a home for my charity quilts.
Our local Presbyterian Church sponsors a homeless shelter
and, no surprise, they have had a huge increase in homeless families.
So my second goal is to piece at least 1 quilt to donate each month
and to quilt all the flimsies my friends bring me for donation.
Haven't figured out which UFO will be next.
I have so many to choose from.
But my promise to myself is to use up my stash in whatever way I can.
I don't want to say I am a hoarder,
but it has gotten to be ridiculous!
And last, but certainly not least,
my little loves.
