WIP Wednesday :: 2014 Inspiration

First let me apologize for the photo heavy post - sorry! Then I feel like I should apologize for the ridiculousness of this post, it turns out I have a problem with planning. Or maybe a problem with my time management. Is there a fabric equivalent of "your eyes were bigger than your stomach"? Because that's me, in spades. So as part of my "buy no fabric in 2014" goal I've been going through my stash pulling together the projects I have planned in my head and all the fabric for and it's a lot. Like A LOT, a lot. I'm hoping that posting it here with help me be accountable and get some things finished this year. So here we go!

1. Denyse Schmidt scrappy trip around the world.

 2. Simply Color jelly roll quilt.
 3. Tula Pink jelly roll quilt.
4. Lush jelly roll quilt.
 5. Kona solids scrappy trip.
 6. JoAnn's jelly roll quilt for the kiddo.
 7. Kaffe St. Louis 16 patch.
 8. Brown/red/aqua St. Louis 16 patch.
 9. Kaffe/purple St. Louis 16 patch - this was all ready to go as a gift for some husband who shall remain nameless who told me that "he didn't really need a quilt as a gift". Ahem.
 10. Lark quilt - no idea what pattern this is, saw Kelby sews make one and loved it.
 11. Boy quilt, fabrics but no plan ;-)
 12. Indie quilt - planning on trying TRIANGLES for this one!! For our bed, will be BIG!
 13. Bari J. and Maureen Cracknell quilt - again, no plan just love the fabrics.
 14. Nordika large vintage star quilt using Jeni Baker's tutorial.
 15. Flea Market Fancy patchwork quilt, all the 9" squares cut and have backing.
 16. Kaffe shot cotton kit from my LQS.
 17. Florence F8 quilt.
 18. Rainbow quilt for the child's bed (not that she'll sleep under it).
 19. Something happy and patchworky, think Red Pepper Quilts :-)
 20. New Wave quilt with a Sew Mama Sew bundle from, uh, years ago. YEARS people.
 21. Gabbie Log Mansion using AMH's pattern.
 22. Rainbow picnic quilt.
 23. 1974 Urban Chicks quilt, again no plan just a whole lotta fabric love.
 24. Regular size Modern Maples.
 25. Thanksgiving table runner.
26. Christmas quilt for us. Maybe wonky log cabins.

And not pictured (because I keep remembering things as I type! Eek!)

27. Bright Kaffe quilt kit from my LQS, bought for me by BFF an embarrassing number of years ago.
28. Hip Holiday table runner
29. Lucky Penny scrappy trip - all strips already cut and I have the backing.
30. Halloween quilt (because I just didn't love the one I made this year).

Plus I have christmas fabric to make at least 2 more quilts as gifts, all my DS and AMH massive stash (and I really mean massive) and lots of other fabrics just waiting to play. So signing off buying for a year doesn't seem like that much a hardship does it? It actually feels more like a relief. So here's to working through the stash in 2014! Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted :-)

  1. With a plan like this, I know you will do it.

  2. OMG....theres a few projects! I probably have just as many or much fabric and so much more that is teasing me over at all the fabric shops! LOL! Bust those UFO's girl!

  3. OMG Girl!!! Thats a whole helluvalot of projects! No pressure or anything!! har har! I have never had a jelly roll, I wouldnt know what to do with it ; 0

  4. I love you even more for this list. You should probably be afraid that I "get it". I am forbidden from making any more stacks for a while.

  5. That is an awful lot of quilting! LOL What a lot of fun though!

  6. WOW! You're so organized! I hope you are productive and enjoy all your projects!

  7. hahaha! This is as bad as me! The TO-DO's are always longer then the Dones. Beautiful fabric choices!

  8. Wow - that is a lot of projects! Love the fabrics you have though!


  9. I love this....for so many reasons! Thank you for sharing!

  10. Beautiful fabrics! I love that you have a plan! That's half the work!

  11. Oh my goodness that is quite a list! I wish my stash was big enough to be able to do that haha. Good luck with everything :) I can't wait to see what you make.

  12. Seriously, I love everything on this list, and I am soooo envious that you have all the beautiful fabrics to make them all. I can't wait them all done. Good luck!
