  1. Christine says:

    In 2013 I plan to finish the quilt for my guest room – it has been way too many years in the making! A nephew is getting married, so I will be hosting a Quilting Shower and will do the quilting after the top is pieced. Most importantly, two quilting friends lost their husbands this year; so I want to spend more quilting time with them as they go through the grieving process.

  2. Sandy W. says:

    One of my quilting goals for 2013 is to use up my existing containers of scraps by making quilts for small children.

  3. Debbie Goad says:

    One goal is to quilt some of my finished tops that have been put aside while I piece new ones. I have a wedding quilt to make, a quilt promised to my niece and a quilt my dad asked me to make. Lots to do and wish I had more time to sew.

  4. Brooke Ehly says:

    My goal is to quilt the tops I have hiding in my closet… 6 or 7 of them!

  5. Martha says:

    My goal for 2013 is to finish the quilt I started in 2004 and to make a baby quilt for a former coworker. And then…..

  6. Allison42 says:

    I want to do more quilting on the tops I already have stockpiled in the closet so my good intention for 2013 would be to come out of the closet (so to speak! :) )

  7. Karen A says:

    I recently got a new sewing machine that has lots of space to allow quilting. I have no more excuses for not getting my tops quilted now. 2013 will be the year of finished projects!

  8. Toni Stone says:

    Wow I can only list one. It would have to be the quilt and accessories I am making for my room. I have portions done on the quilt and shams and material bought for the pillowcases. Just trying to find the right sashing material for my quilt.

  9. Susan B says:

    My goals are to finish some UFOs and to better organize all my fabrics and notions. Thanks for the giveaway – I love the calendars.

  10. Sandy says:

    How ’bout to make a freakin’ quilt?? :D

  11. Susan Schwager says:

    I have so many projects that need to be finished! I hope to finish ONE of them in 2013. Let’s all cross our fingers!

  12. Linda Webster says:

    My goal for 2013 si to finish some of the unfinished projects I still have from 2012. They are projects I do want to finish but just haven’t had the time. Next year, I’ll be making time for them!

  13. carol l says:

    Working on a quilt for each member of my family, bed size. Wonderful calendars, count me in.

  14. Annaleena says:

    First I should finish couple old ufos so I can start new projects. I’m planning to improve my skills in quilting with domestic sewing machine and hand appliqueing. I think I’ll have a very interesting and enjoyable quilting year 2013. Thanks for a chance.

  15. Claudia says:

    Psst, Santa, the Award-Winning Quilts 2013 Calendar would look really great on the wall in my studio to keep me on track for the year. One goal: first, clean up the mess that has accumulated from this year. It is a disaster area. Second, complete my Hoffman challenge. Third, I sent for the challenge package for another challenge yesterday. Mostly, make more quilts to send to the Hurricane Sandy survivors, and possibly one to Newtown. And at least one QOV for a veteran.

  16. Brenda says:

    I need to seriously use my stash and make some quilts. I recently moved to another state and it took half of a moving truck just for my fabric. I love fabric and the beautiful things created with it. I made myself a promise to use what I have before purchasing more…well, it was a nice goal. Maybe for 2013 I will do better, or maybe just sew more so I can use up what I have and still begin a new stash for future projects. After all, fabric withdrawl could be dangerous to my health, right? Thanks for the chance to win. I love new projects.

  17. Lyn says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I would like to learn to FMQ on my new Janome 7700 (which I also have to learn to use!)

  18. Sharon says:

    I love quilt calendars – I would really like to play with Batiks in 2013. They are a fabric I love, but have never worked with.

  19. Cindy says:

    My goal is to make a large lap quilt for my sister which I am hoping to FMQ. That means I have to practice, practice, practice since I’m a beginner. Would love to win a quilt calendar! Thanks for the giveaway.

  20. LizaA says:

    My 2013 goal is to finish my first big quilt ever.

  28. Nancy Sue says:

    Having just moved in November, and yes, still unpacking, I’ve placed my hands on my UFOS twice now. Once to pack it, and another time to unpack it. Realizing how many UFOs I have, I’m going to try to chip out time EACH day to sew. I’ve said it before, but I’m really going to try to stick to it. So what if I’m sewing at 11.59pm trying to reach my goal:)

  35. Barb Colvin says:

    My first goal for 2013 is to finish my son’s red/black/white quilt. I only have a few blocks to finish piecing, so this is very doable. Then maybe I can finish my quilt! I hope everyone enjoys the holidays!
