I plan to finish my last 3 UFO's this year, make 12 new quilts, and to do something to improve my fittness level. Would love to win any one of the books. Great blog.

Liz said...

I plan to finish UFOs and get better at free-motion quilting!

H2Ogirl said...

Lovely giveaway for the new year!

One of my few goals is to finish at least 3 quilts that I've have my beemates help me make.

To make more quilts

Kritta22 said...

One of my goals is to finish a quilt a month! You are welcome to stop by my blog to read my others! Thanks for the giveaway!

Keeping it Real said...

My goal is to try to work on more smaller projects rather than overwhelm myself with big quilts. I think it will help me to build my skills and make me feel more productive.

Oh, I've been drooling over the new 99 Modern Blocks book! Not very original, but I'm going to say UFOs and quick. I don't expect to get them all completed, but at least the ones I want to enter in our local Quilt Show.

This year a postage stamp quilt is calling me ...

thank you for the chance to win some lovely inspiration!

happy new 2012

I'm determined to get all UFOs from previous years completed this year. I don't want to carry them into 2013.

LethargicLass said...

Hmmm... well I would love to make myself a quilt... but I also do need to get myself in better physical condition :)

Deb said...

I just want to spend more time with my family...have a few quilting goals but nothing host I must do apart from my bees :)

Deb said...

So many goals, so little time! One quilting goal I have is to make 4 charity quilts. I've made blocks for various charity opportunities (which I will still do) but this year I want to make 4 quilts to donate on my own. Thanks for the chance! All of those books look FAB!

I definitely have a few unfinished Christmas projects that I would love to complete so that I can use these next year (includes an advent calendar and stocking, plus a few more).

Patchwork and Play said...

GREAT giveaway! Thank you for offering so many great books! I am determined to complete more UFO's this year! I have started by finishing one today!

Sally said...

I have a goal for 2012 of trying to stress about things less, i suffer from anxiety and it really puts a hold on things i do, therefore this is the year to get it under control.
I also have a goal to start my new job and enjoy it, as well as have a great year!!
Hope your all have a great 2012

evamarie said...

My resolution is to not feel chased all day, be more in the moment. I'd love to win the practical quide to patchwork!

Thank you for this giveaway! I'd like to have this first book, I'm going to try many different blocks this year. And then again I will try to sew every day the whole year.

Basildon Kitchens said...

Thanks for the great giveaway!

I plan to complete many of my UFO's and do some serious organiztion of my quilt room.

Hope your 2012 brings health, happiness, prosperity and lots of quilting! :)

I Plead Quilty! said...

I resolve to get the laundry done more often. Last year, I had a goal of one quilt a month, which meant I didn't do much around the house and only did the laundry when I ran out of underwear! (Come on, you know you've done it, too.) This year, I'm dropping the quilt per month, but definitely need to do better with the laundry. :-)

deborah said...

One of my goals is to organize my stash and sewing tools- they're all over the place!

Thanks for the giveaway... any of those books would make me happy. Have a wonderful new year!

supersara20 said...

Great giveaway Anna! My goal is to finish up a few of my finished quilt tops from this year.

Lisbeth said...

Well. beyond more sewing, my big goals this year are to keep my house more picked up and clean than I have in the past. (Side benefit - a clean house is easier to sew in, right?)

Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Linda Beth said...

great giveaway! I certainly have a list of quilty goals for the year, but the big goal for me is to finally have a fence put in in my yard so I can consider finding a dog to bring home (something I've talked about for years now).

Kim's Crafty Apple said...

What an amazing giveaway! Thanks for doing this! I have so many plans for the New Year! My first is to reorganize/rearrange my crafting room so my new 'small' long arm can actually fit in it :) I also need to get back into shape after having my third baby (I know...typical resolution) - BUT I need to do this so I have the energy to keep up with my three very active girls!

Thanks again!

Melissa @Lilac Lane said...

Found you from @kimscraftyapple on twitter. Great giveaway! I have a lot of goals, but one is to clean out my sewing room it's a giant disaster! I'd love any of these books but the practical guide to patchwork would be awesome!

Lisa Marie said...

One of my goals is to increase efficiency so I can sleep more and work less! Not sure how to make that happen but there's got to be a way! Great giveaway. Happy new year!

Colleen said...

To let go of perceived greviences. To pray more and put my trust in God.

Chelsea said...

ooh, awesome giveaway! my new year's goal is to try to answer emails more promptly. so, yeah, let's see if that actually happens!

Katie said...

This year I would like to make my first quilt!!!

Marika said...

This year, I want to be healthier and get in a better shape.

I'd love the first book with all the blocks. It was on my wish list but I didn't get it, so...

Thanks and happy new year !

Ann said...

What a brilliant giveaway!!
Hmmmm. Resolutions... I do not do much of that.. But I have promised myself to get into a better habit of drinking water in stead of just forgetting it: I am convinced my body will benefit from it!

Thanks for participating in the Geese in a Ring Swap too!

B Greene said...

My goal is to get my crafting area up and functioning ASAP! We moved in mid-2011 and the basement has been a disaster - BUT, I am making progress!

The books look wonderful! In fact, two are sitting in my shopping cart at Amazon right now. I think I will hold off on clicking that "Place Order" for a few days! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Karen (nybird) (KMello) said...

Get my new sewing space painted and flooring put in, then move in and get organize so that I can work more efficiently. Right now I have to keep moving piles of fabric and WIP around which slows me down! I have bee blocks that need to be made up and a quilt top from a couple decades ago to get quilted.

Any of the giveaway books would be wonderful to own!
