  • I would like to work on an heirloom quilt from my grandmother. She finished the top and it’s been sitting unfinished since the 50’s. The problem is that I don’t like it at all…it has black butterflies in patchwork. Black butterflies? I’m hoping I will be hit with inspiration and be able to cut up the blocks or find a way to work with them. This calendar would look very nice in my sewing room!

    —Kathy E. on July 28, 2015
  • I plan to finish the quilt I started – it’s mostly cut out, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.

    —Karen on July 28, 2015
  • Hoping to keep learning and complete some projects that I have on my ‘to do’ list……some I already have the fabric and pattern, others just the pattern. But I’d love to make quilts to decorate with, and some to give as special gifts.

    —Jonnie on July 28, 2015
  • My goals are to finish all started projects and to make the kits I have not started.

    —Joan on July 28, 2015
  • I signed up for a quilting retreat in March 2016 and looking forward to it!

    —Kris Walter on July 28, 2015
  • I’ve only been quilting for a little over a year. In 2016, I hope to learn a lot more and do more complicated quilting. I’m addicted!

    —Andy on July 28, 2015
  • I want to complete the many quilts and projects I have accumulated over the past few years. I want to be able to start some new projects too. Lots of work and not enough time. But I will persevere.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on July 28, 2015
  • I have several items to tackle, but the main one is to quilt by machine a top I finished last year. It has laid long enough and I really want to learn to quilt by machine. I have left it as I wanted to finish it rather than have someone else do it. Then, on to some of the other projects wanting my attention. Beautiful calendar–it would be a joy to have.

    —Pam on July 28, 2015
  • Definitely attend HMQS as well as my quilt guild retreat.

    —Jo Anne on July 28, 2015
  • My goal for 2016 is to buy LESS fabric, and do a whole lot more sewing! I would love to finish at least one quilt a month!

    —Sonya M on July 28, 2015

    —Kim on July 28, 2015
  • My goal is to finish up at least 1 project each month from my UFOs (right now the count of UFOs is down to 18 from 24). Oops, forgot about the 3 new ones I have from the Hershey Quilt Show that I just came home from, so, (24 – 6 + 3 = 21). O.K. I need to get working again….

    —Judy M on July 28, 2015

    —Sue H on July 28, 2015
  • My Quilty plans for 2016, where do I begin. First I think I would finish some UFO’s that I have. Then maybe make some wall hangings, lap quilts, table runners, for future gifts and personal use. Now the question is, will I stick to this plan? Time will tell!! 🙂

    —Karen DH on July 28, 2015

  • My best friend and I will continue shop hopping to get new ideas for quilts we will be working on (and hopefully finishing!) during the next year. It’s great to have a friend who quilts and may have more fabric than I do! Thank you.

    —Teresa Joan on July 28, 2015
  • I really want to make another miniature quilt – but bigger size with the tiny pieces. And my scrap stash just won’t go down so there are plenty of choices hidden in my stash to do a big mini – tiny pieces, bigger quilt.

    —Joy Bradley on July 28, 2015
  • In 2016 I’m planning to make a special quilt for my first grandbaby who is due in February!

    —Susan Green on July 28, 2015
  • I want to take my daughters drawings & transfer them to fabric. Then I want to hand stitch them & put them together into a memory quilt as a keepsake. She is no longer able to draw but we hope some day she can again. ☺️

    —Jamie on July 28, 2015

  • Finish those UFO’s and use up some stash.

    —Glenda Britten on July 28, 2015
  • I try not to think that far ahead, but I see visions of creating and quilting many quilts, attending at least two retreats and Quilt Expo and hopefully tackling some UFOs. I may do a shop hop in another state or another region of my state that I haven’t tried before. (I think I’ve been to every quilt shop in my area.) It’s going to be a busy year. Is there a store where I can buy some time???

    —kraftykc on July 28, 2015
  • Plans for 2016 are to keep on quilting. Start quilts, finish quilts, and especially to learn something new to challenge myself.

  • I have a few UFO’s I hope to finish up this year, and a couple of retreats I hope to attend. It is a non-quilt show year for my guild, so that takes some of the pressure off.

    —Regina on July 28, 2015
  • 2016 I want to hit the road and visit quilt shops at surround my state and also go to a few new quilt shows. Always on the lookout for new goodies to add to my stash.

    —Kathy Luehrs on July 28, 2015

    —Sharon on July 28, 2015

    —Crista on July 28, 2015

    Jean Kester on July 28, 2015

    —jane d on July 28, 2015
  • There are 2 quilting retreats in my plans for 2016. Plus starting an heirloom – something with applique on it.

    —Carol Gearey on July 28, 2015

    —Diana Salmon on July 28, 2015
  • I plan to try for another quilt retreat this coming May. I am 83 and went to my first one last year. It was so much fun and so many interesting things to see and do.
    I would surely love to have that calendar to note all the events down and to share with bunk-mates.

    Donna on July 28, 2015
  • Make the tops I have finished into quilts, I have 3 or 4. This is my least favorite part, but still prefer to do it myself.

    —Memory Frost on July 28, 2015
  • My guild has it’s yearly retreat in Feb. looking forward to a girls weekend of fun and laughter with so many friends. My goal for 2016 is to work on getting the 50 + quilt tops quilted, not all but start getting the number down. I love making the tops, then I’m ready to move on. I do complete the smaller things, just can’t figure out what quilting pattern to use on the larger ones, it ends up being stipples or meandering just to get it finished.

    —connie b on July 28, 2015
  • I plan to finish some more UFO’s next year. Have finished 6 already this year. How can anyone have so many? Also, I plan to attend our guild’s Quilt Retreat at Red Top Mtn. And will probably go to a quilt show somewhere.

    —Sylvia on July 28, 2015
  • My plans for next year revolve around getting myself a dedicated sewing/quilting space. Goodbye spare bed :)I need the space for the mid arm I’m thinking of buying. Treating myself to lots of quilty related trips and most exciting helping a good friend with the new directions that her quilty business is travelling in. All in all I’m hoping for a fun filled year as the last year has not been so good ( I lost my mum in January)

    —Kath Caffel on July 28, 2015
  • My quilty plan is to learn to hand-quilt!

    —Cynthia Wilbanks on July 28, 2015
  • Quilty plans for 2016…to finish those "one of these days" projects. I’ve a couple of hand-stitched tops which demand hand quilting, so in the dreary days of January and February, and I am going to get going. Besides, our Guild has a show in early summer so my objective is to get those quilts in the show.

    Gail G on July 28, 2015
  • Greatest Calender Yet.
    I use it to keep trac of the many Quilt project I have going all year to get them ready for the Try County Fair in Bishop where I spend the summer.

    —Juergen Roesler on July 28, 2015

    Kathy on July 28, 2015
  • Get organized and finish UFOs!

    —Mary Lou Upton on July 28, 2015
  • I’m just planning to sew whenever the spirit moves me to, time and schedule allowing of course, which is the big catch to the whole idea. But lap quilts for a DiL, GD, and SiL are on the horizon, plus lap and bed quilts for myself, along with my usual oodles of blankies for Project Linus.

    —Suzanprincess on July 28, 2015
  • I plan on quilting and finishing my ufo’s in 2016. Thank you for the giveaway.

    —Janie on July 28, 2015

    —theresa sheldon on July 28, 2015
  • My quilts plans for 2016 revolve around my caravan. I have it all set up for quilting and plan longer trips away next year. This year I’ve been away for 3 or 4 days at a time – next year it will be 2 or 3 months at a time. I hope to be able to finish several of my multitude of ufo’s. Can’t wait.

    —Faye Adamczyk on July 28, 2015
  • We have taken the last two years to make quilts for each of our grandchildren (22 to be exact) for this Christmas. We did a few smaller items but I look forward to working on a hand-applique quilt, charity quilts, maybe a couple of baby quilts and a tiny bit of deep housecleaning. And, not to forget, cruise through a few (ha, ha) quilt shops as well. That is what next year looks like for me!

    —Janey on July 28, 2015
  • In 2016 I am going to get out a couple of kits that I have and do them along with a couple of block of the months that I belong to.I am sure there will be other projects that I will fall in love with and have to do too.

    —Sandy D on July 28, 2015

    —Melanie on July 28, 2015
  • I have gotten involved once again with hexagons. I got out my Grandmother’s Flower Garden hand sewn hexagon quilt I started 30 years ago and will attempt to finish it in the coming year. My good friend taught me to make hexagons as my first quilting project.

    Lately I have been making red-white-and-blue hexagons for a wall hanging to donate to the local Veteran’s Office.

    —Mary B on July 28, 2015
  • I am going to complete several projects that I started in my "lost" period after my Mother died. I bought a new Bernina last year and I’m on my way to getting these all finished up. Of course I’ll start some new projects also. There are so many fun fabrics to get into!! Makes me so happy again!

    —Kimberly P on July 28, 2015

    —JaniceCarole Allen on July 28, 2015

    —Jo on July 28, 2015
  • I would like to go shop hopping with a friend- what a great time it would be. Touching, feeling, admiring and dreaming what new projects can be made with the fabrics- sounds like an addiction:)

    carol on July 28, 2015
  • I plan to finish as many UFO’s as possible. Have made a dent this year and really need to do 2-3 times as many in 2016. Hope to go to another retreat in Montana if they indeed have one.

    —Marge P on July 28, 2015
  • Yikes — I am still plugging away on my 2015 goals and you want me to determine what I’ll do in 2016?! In addition to the perpetual "buy less, finish more" I look forward to gathering with the Magpies, my online quilting group, for our 9th biennial in-person meetup at the Dallas quilt show (March). My local guild show will be in November.

    Nann on July 28, 2015

    —Kay on July 28, 2015
  • 2016 plans are to try new things …at least two! One would be paper piecing using freezer paper and the other is appliqué. If I don’t add too many things to the list it feels more doable. This year was to finsh ALL 12 UFO’s…only two to go!

    —Joanne Larson on July 28, 2015
  • I plan to start longarm quilting my own quilts–I have almost 30 of them to get done, instead of quilting everyone elses quilts thinking I’ll still get to mine. Which by the way hasn’t happened in over 7 years! So it’s finally time that I take the time off for those unfinished projects or they will never get done and I love them all!!

    Diane Nagle on July 28, 2015
  • I retired on July 1st and I am soooo excited to partake of retreats and classes! And to think I can quilt or travel to quilt shops during the weekdays has me absolutely doing proverbial cartwheels! My big goal outside of that is to finish two bed size quilts, one that just needs a little more quilting and binding and another one that has to be backed and quilted!

    —Annie on July 28, 2015
  • My quilty plan is to finish a bed sized quilt

    —Lynnette Lamance on July 28, 2015

    Danette on July 28, 2015
  • Just be happy in my everyday life and learn as many new ways to quilt or craft as this year allows. Time goes so fast but fun days ahead with thinking of new projects and finishing up as they say "UFO"‘s. What a super nice gift and way to preserve your done quilts than putting them in a yearly calendar.

    Tanya Phinney on July 28, 2015
  • I want to finish piecing the small quilt my grandmother started over 25 years ago. It’s a pattern I’ve never seen in Christmas colors.

  • We just moved from coast to coast and are finishing our remodel, changing a garage into our home while assisting my inlaws, one of which has Alzheimers. I will be happy just to find a place to get my machine out again and sew whatever fits my fancy at the moment. I have several UFOs and they will be waiting to be unpacked in the next few months. Can’t wait to greet my sewing stuff again after almost 7 months of waiting.

    —Jeanne on July 28, 2015

    —Lynne on July 28, 2015
  • The very first thing (after hopefully finding employment) will be to finish the "promised projects" that have gone to the back burner. I’d also like to join the local quilt guild and get some new ideas for projects on my "to do" list. So many people want a quilt for one reason or another and I’m beginning to get a bit overwhelmed with it all.

Not able to travel, retreats are not possible so I am seeking to quilt, quilt, quilt for so many folks who have taught me, mentored, me, and encouraged me on the pathway of my winter years.

  • My number one priority for the coming year is to quilt the king size wedding quilt I made for my step-daughter. I finished piecing it in January, and I keep looking at it, trying to get up the courage to quilt it myself. I only have a little sit-down mid-arm machine, and the thought of dealing with that 102″ square quilt is daunting. That, and I’ve only been quilting for a few years. But I’m determined! My hubby will help me baste it, and I just have to stop procrastinating. Hopefully I’ll have it done by the time they set a date for the wedding.

  • I’m hoping to go to a quilting retreat weekend near Fort Robinson which is a historical site of a soldier’s fort near Crawford, NE.

  • What I have started this year is finished. Any made next year finished next year. Pray I can see to do it. I have double vision and may be having surgery soon on my right eye to correct it.

    —Linda Christianson on July 31, 2015
  • I’ve never had a quilt calendar (hint, hint!) I plan to make throws for my husband’s two friends first off (because I was going to do it this year and am strapped for time). I also plan to make something just for ME.

    —Nancy Eriksen on July 31, 2015
  • I’m hoping my hubby will have finished making me a table for my machine, so I can do some machine quilting without all the drag from being on top of the table.

    —Madeline on July 31, 2015
  • My goal for 2016 is to practice and improve my long arm quilting skills so that I can finally quilt that big stack of finished tops!

  • I hope to have my home sold and moved before 2016, and settled in my new apartment with my quilting room all set up. That calendar would look wonderful on my new wall!! 🙂

    —Judy Pennington on July 31, 2015
  • I hope to make a paper doll quilt for my granddaughter’s March birthday, I’ve had the fabric for a few years and I’m anxious to get started. Plus I’m in a mini quilt of the month class at my local quilt shop and I’m
    way behind! Also I’ve committed to make a charity quilt for a foster kids camp due in May. So many quilts, I need that calendar so I can keep track! Thank you, I really love it.

    —Renee Welton on July 31, 2015
  • 2016,,Oh, what will it bring into my life?? I hope to have piecing time to complete a few quilts I now have started, at Retreat at Home Harvest in Trenton, Ga., is one of the highlights of the year for me. Then in March we have our Guild Retreat at the Y-Camp and it is wonderful time to sew together and share a lot of laughs and get to know one another!

    —Charlie on July 31, 2015
  • Plan to finish, or at least make good progress on, several UFOs so I can start some new projects! Also hope to travel to all the stops on my favorite local area quilt shop hop. Linda, I pray that if you need to have eye surgery, it will be a complete success!

    —JLouise on July 31, 2015
  • I really haven’t thought of what my quilty plans are for 2016. My plan for 2015 was to start using up as many scraps as I could. This plan has come along very nicely but I think those scraps are multiplying when I am not looking. So I may just start 2016 with the same goals in mind. Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway.

    —Renea on July 31, 2015
  • I plan to make a fan quilt with my mother as a surprise gift for my daughter.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on July 31, 2015
  • I plan to start a block exchange with the friend who started me on my quilting journey.

    —Beth T. on August 1, 2015
  • Travel to some quilt shops and retreats. Finish more quilts.

    —Susan on August 1, 2015
  • I’ve never done a Shop Hop so my goal is to do one this year.

    —Sherril M. on August 1, 2015
  • im looking forward to sewing my stash…ive made a good start in 2015 and hope to carry on thru 2016

    —jenny on August 1, 2015
  • I would like to complete at least 12 quilts! I just had a thumb reconstruction, so I am hoping for pain-free quilting! Growing old is for the birds! haha! Love the calendar giveaway!

    Margo on August 1, 2015
  • To finish some of my works in progress!

    —Amy Cofer on August 1, 2015
  • One of the things I want to do in 2016 is start on a total hand appliquéd quilt. I have had one in mind for quite awhile, I just need to get to it. Love the inspiration your calendar can give me as I look at it each month.

    —Nancy N on August 1, 2015
  • There are a lot of projects that need to be finished. But there is always time to hit the shop hops!

    —Pearl on August 1, 2015
  • My quilty goal is to do more applique

    —cak on August 1, 2015
  • Oh good grief it is coming up too quickly, lols.

    In 2016 I intend to learn more about the art of quilting and step out of my comfort zone by attempting EPP, I intend to complete my daughter’s king size quilt and begin my quilt, in between all of this I have ’round robins’, embroidery guild meetings, plus the planned fishing camping trip with DH, just wondering if I could sneak a sewing machine into the trip 😉

    —Janet G on August 1, 2015
  • I plan to make a large pictorial art quilt of three of my grandchildren jumping on the beach. Can’t wait to see how it turns out! I also have a retreat or two I plan to attend!

    —Meriul on August 1, 2015
  • Hoping to attend Quilt Expo-Madison, WI in September, and take some quilt skills classes this winter.

    —Vin M on August 2, 2015
  • looking forward to a quilt retreat and then a rug hooking retreat with my sister. We keep each other busy with projects and new "toys"

    —connie b on August 2, 2015
  • I think I’m going to challenge myself in 2016. If I can finish two UFO’s then I can reward my self by starting a new project. But I must finish that project and then repeat the process. I must also commit to "sewing" at least one hour a day. Sewing being cutting, sewing, ironing, trimming, etc. I feel I might accomplish more if I can work on my quilting a little at a time.

    —Mary Smith on August 2, 2015
  • Where has 2015 gone so far? You know the expression "your eyes are bigger than your stomach"? Well, my eyes are bigger than my plans for 2015 and I am still working on that. I might have to carry over my plans 2015 into 2016. I still have some gifts to make, small items such as potholders and place mats. Usually start thinking for next year around October, once the weather cools off. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on August 3, 2015
  • In 2016 I’d like to improve my patchwork piecing skills and practice machine quilting–practice, practice, practice! I need to slow down and be more patient when I’m at the machine. Thanks!

    —Kathleen C on August 3, 2015
  • I am still in the learning stage – and my goal for 2016 is to learn different techniques for piecing, and to concentrate on learning the options of quilting on my 1970’s Kenmore!

    —Marian Allen on August 4, 2015
  • I intend to finish several UFOs, go on a shop hop with quilting buddies, and have a retreat with them in the spring. Love that sewing and quilting! Sewing with friends makes it even better!

    —Carol Kussart on August 4, 2015
  • My plans are to go to my annual quilt retreat in January and work towards finishing any projects started this year that have not gotten finished! I will also keep working on my English Paper piecing projects as they are my carry bag projects. I may start a few new small projects before then but usually finish the small projects quickly.

    —Debbie Miller on August 4, 2015
  • I always have a calendar over my sewing and computer station and would love to have the 2016 calendar featuring quilted projects. The 2016 calendar would add such a nice touch while I am sewing and researching on my computer. I would like to perk up my sewing room to enhance my love of quilting.

    —Carol N. on August 4, 2015
  • My plan is to finish some of the UFOs that have been hanging around a bit too long now…..

    Tania on August 4, 2015
  • Who doesn’t love a dose of daily inspiration? The tough part would be resisting the urge to jump ahead and the challenge would be completing the project in a month. Guess that would have to be the New Year’s resolution to start the year off with!
