I love the start of a New Year:  I love to look ahead and make plans for the coming year~ vacations (Mexico?  Alaska?), birthday celebrations and the milestones that my kids will be attaining (a 16 year old, my son getting baptized, my 12 year old getting her braces off…); I love the possibilities that seem to exist when we get to start a new calendar in January.  If you are like me, and LOVE the fresh start, I want to hear from you!




One of the resolutions that I’m making is to be build a great business around PatternJam, to make my blog more interesting and exciting, and to produce some lovely new designs!


To start the year out right on my blog~ let’s begin with a great little giveaway!  How does a fat quarter bundle of Vintage Verona sound?

    Lots of big plans in our house this year! Our 20 year old son joined the army as a medic and leaves for boot camp on Feb. 24th. He will also go to Airborne school and possible ranger school. We leave for the Yucatan Peninsula with a couple of our daughters the day after he leaves which will help with my sadness after he lis gone. We have a summer full of rafting trips and grand kids and a new grand baby coming in August! This will be number 7! We are blessed ♥

  41. VickiT says:

    I am a new follower here after being sent over from Sew Adorable Fabrics. This next year in the first month we’ll have all sorts of things from my birthday and me hitting one of those ‘big’ numbers and five days later will be my twins’ 28th birthdays which really makes me feel old. And after that because of all the things we’ve had going on in our home for the entire month of December we are going to do nothing unless we want to. Hubby and I need a rest from all the stress. lol As far as the rest of the year, I will be starting out by the end of January working on Christmas 2014 gifts. I want to be totally done with all my holiday sewing by July and then those things I must buy will be picked up every two weeks so we can be totally done with all gifts other than perishable items by Thanksgiving. The month between Thanksgiving and Christmas I want no stress this next year in December at all. I hope I can stay on this schedule, although it doesn’t sound too bad. It’s totally doable and I have been purchasing lots of Christmas fabrics now while at clearance prices so I should be good to go.

    This fabric would be awesome to win because it could be perfect for one of the quilt alongs I’m considering doing as well. It’s beautiful. Thank you for the chance.

  42. Kris says:

    My daughter is getting married in 2014 & I’ll be making a special wall hanging for her. I can’t wait. It’s going to be an outside Country Wedding with fall colors. Today we looked at gowns & she found the one she wants. She’s going to be so beautiful.

  43. Kandice says:

  45. Debby says:

    Thanks so much for the chance to win your beautiful fabric! I’m a facebook follower. I’m hoping to get a good start in the new year on all the things I didn’t get to finish for this Christmas and be ahead of the game for next year! 😉

  50. Lindy says:

    I have so many things I want to do, there aren’t enough hours in the day. I just moved to a new house and it has a marvelous front porch with an area that I am able to display quilt hangings from. I made one for Halloween and Christmas. All my neighbors enjoyed them. I’m now working on Valentine and Fourth of July ideas. I’ve also subscribed to a bench pillow of the month club. They will be perfect on my front porch bench.
    Your Vintage Verona materials would make beautiful hangings for the spring and summer.

    • emily says:

      Good luck at the new home~ I agree with you that there are just not enough hours in the day! I wish I was one of those people who require only 5 hours of sleep.

  51. Kathy G says:

  55. joy says:

    Aha…New Year….always tantalising, with thoughts of new projects such as make something for christmas every month!!! This is brought on by late Christmas rush and wishing I had made something special for each of the family. And then there is the thought of actually finishing some projects – granddaughters quilt, BOM etc etc. Finally the thought of sorting my sewing room again! All lovely thoughts…..just have to do them.

  56. Laura R. says:

    I like you on facebook and follow you by email.

  66. Marjorie Nath says:

    I sat down this morning and wrote up my list of WIP’s to work on in 2014. There are eight of them not counting the 4 BOM’s that I am involved in. The worst one is a flimsy that is from around 1977 or 78. It is a quilt top that I made for my youngest daughter (she’s 37 now) I thought I had finished it when I did the other one but I found it when I was unpacking stuff when we moved here to Mexico. It’s embarrassing to even admit that. I hope to get back to embroidering and combine the two. The very first quilt I remember was embroidered blocks alternating with pink solid ones from when I was under 10. Thank you for the chance to win the beautiful bundle.

  67. Sunnybec says:

    Lots of touring around my adopted country (France) with lots of sewing in between! Thanks for the giveaway. x

    Oh my, what are my plans for the new year?? Making more quilts for myself maybe. Having it as a business, quilting for others, and often not having much energy for health reasons, I don’t have enough quilts in my house, for use on the couch, for guest room ect… I hope I can get more made. Also these fabrics would be great for nice summer skirt for me.

  83. Michele says:

    I want to push myself out of my comfort zone and work on my small business with more diligence.

  84. This year I really want to focus an making my life and my family’s more simple. More homemade meals (from scratch), more crafts for all of us and more time together.

    • emily says:

      That is a great goal! I’m kind of an old fashioned stickler about family dinner, & I cook dinner about 4-5 times a week. I guess that qualifies me as an expert after 20 years, right? Not sure the kids would agree 😉

  121. Terri Herman says:

    I would love to finish quilting the quilt I started for my daughter as a college graduation gift. I had no intentions of making her a quilt but then in Feb before her graduation she asked for one. We went to our favorite mega fabric place, Mary Jo’s in Gastonia NC, and picked out all the red, white and black -NC State- fabrics. I began on it shortly after, designing a simple block pattern with a large block about 1/3 of the way from the top with NC STATE embroidered across it. Well, she graduated in spring 2011 and promptly got engaged in July! Moved to begin med school in August with a wedding in October! So, with all the moving and wedding, it got put on the back burner. Then she asked if I could make it a queen size. Geeez! This has been an adventure! It is now a queen size and ONLY needs to be quilted. Sooooo……

    • emily says:

      Kids are an amazing blessing, but they sure do require a lot from us! Good luck with the new queen sized quilt, and congrats on raising an amazing girl!

  122. Crystal says:

  139. RuthB says:

    Last year I made it a goal to finish my UFOs. That left me uninspired and I didn’t get much done. This year I want to alternate between new projects and UFOs and maybe toss some UFOs that just don’t work for me anymore. New projects are so much more fun than old ones, right?

  140. Connie Donaldson says:

    This is a tough one for me , but I want to be more organized

  144. Tammy says:

    My plans have been the same for 18 years now and that is to be the best mom I can be. This year I will get to see my son walk with his class as he graduates. He actually finished early at semester. He works hard and is applying for colleges. My 17 year old is going to school, running her own boutique business and preparing for her next pageant. My New Years resolution has held up so far.

  150. Karri says:

    Emily, I already like you on facebook and stalk . . . er, um . . I mean ‘follow’ you on Pinterest. I love your designs, and especially like the blues in the vintage Verona. This year I want to do more quilting, and more personal sewing projects. I am also going to make a concentrated effort to find and write about something wonderful in every day of 2014 (we’ll see how that goes!).

    P.S. In regard to Suzie’s comment above, a Quillow is a lap-sized quilt that folds up into a pillow. When it is open, there is a little pocket to tuck your feet into (the outer pillow case). They are fun gifts for kids.
