I really love this idea -- picking a dozen new projects to start in the new year and actually starting them. There are soooo many quilts I want to make. I've got stacks of magazines bristling with bookmarks...and more saved on my computer from websites and blogs...and more that are just dancing around in my head... And I know I'm never going to start them all, let alone finish them all.

And it Does Not Matter. I don't have to make every quilt I've ever fallen in love with. Unless I've bought an expensive pattern and fabric that can't be used for anything else, I'm not committed.

My NewFOs for 2012

Spiral Log Cabin
Pineapple Quilt
Calendula Patterdrip's Cottage
applique ladies
Scrappy Kaleidoscope
Rob Peter to Pay Paul
big drab postage stamp quilt
lego quilt
wedged circles
big version of scrappy hearts
jack in the box
Kiss in the corner

These are just off the top of my head, so I'm sure I'll be modifying the list before long.

What quilts have you been wanting to start?

What a great list! It'll be such fun to have you join in. I love the lego quilt. I've been looking for a good scrappy. Maybe I'll try this one. Thanks for sharing.

Why are you doing this? tempting me to start yet another new project when I have so many UFOs. Are you going to finish all my old ones for me so I'm not buried under quilt tops?
OK, I want to do another pineapple quilt. I have 2 baby quilts to do first but then the pineapple. That's all I can commit to at the moment.

Wow, lots of pretty projects on your list. Looking forward to seeing your challenge posts.

I thought they were called Whimms. I like NewFO's much better!

Such a fun list and love how you added you are not committed and you can change your mind! Looking forward to an adventurous new year.

Great list, Michelle! This will be a fun year, don't you think?! :)

That IS a great idea. I have Swoon, too, and I want to do it. I just saw it finished on another blog and commented about how I need to start it. She said it should definitely be at the top of my list. I see it's at the top of yours, too. Cool!
