New Projects to make and Ideas to try 2015

New Projects to make and Ideas to try 2015

This is a sort of reverse UFO Zapping! This is a list of things you'd like to make or ideas you'd like to try in the next twelve months. It'll help you remember all those plans. I'll give a prize every month to one person who ticks an item off their list. Remember this is a list of NEW projects or ideas, not old.

Just like last year, this is a sort of reverse UFO Zapping thread!

Add a post to list things you'd like to make or ideas you'd like to try in the next twelve months. It'll help you remember all those plans. I'll give a prize every month to one person who ticks an item off their list. Remember this is a list of NEW projects or ideas, not old.

Upload a photo to the album in the article at the top of the page when you've finished something new and post a picture for us all to see here.

I have been waiting patiently for this thread and have been keeping a running list since I joined the forum. Here it is, probably a bit ambitious for one year but we can but hope and if not then at least I'll be able to start a list on the UFO 2016 thread. laugh

Projects I have patterns and/or fabric for:

Table runner (non-seasonal)

Strip and flip quilt

‘Charm Pack Cherry’ pattern spare bed quilt

Pocketed Wall Organiser

Hexie pin cushion

Complete the Sew Happy Quilt A Long project

Quilted cutting mat bag

Placemats

Jelly roll quilt

White/cream hexagonal quilt for friend

A zippered pouch

Christmas tree skirt

Decorative Christmas stocking

Origami wreath

Things I’d like to try but haven’t picked a project yet:

Foundation paper piecing project

English paper piecing project

Mug Rug swap

Quilted cushion cover

Machine applique project

Make something from the Fast Fat Quarter Quilts book I won as a forum joining prize

Free motion quilting practice project (mini quilt/runner or hanging)

A fabric storage box/boxes

Christmas table runner gift for Mum

Guess I'd better hurry up and finish decorating my office/workroom so I can get started on something.

Hi Katy

Looking at my 2014 list, please can you bring 6 across to this year after removing the Green Fabric Swap. This has been half made on my design wall for months so is now a UFO and also remove the Layer Cake scraps quilt as by the time I get started on it again it will have become a UFO.

Please can you add

Sizzix half hexie quilt

Sizzix Friendship Braid quilt

Sizzix Large Dresden Plate quilt

3D Honeycomb quilt

Gypsy Wife Quilt - this will be an ongoing project through the year
