Planning Some 2022 Projects!

 Yup, we are still just starting December and  I find myself planning my sewing for 2022 :)   Gotta love it!!  But my fabric for the Heart Felt Charity Quilt Along arrived the other day and I just can't wait to get started on it!!!   I have already pressed it all and am gearing up for cutting.  I am so looking forward to making this quilt next year, this will be my 8th year participating in the Fat Quarter Shop Charity Quilt Along and it is truly one of my favorites every year!!!  Are you going to quilt along??  You can see more details about it here!! 

And, speaking of charity quilting . . . If you have been around here for a bit, you know I do a lot of Quilting in Red, White, and Black.   And just about every Red, White, and Black quilt I make is donated to my Alma Mater, Southern Utah University.   The quilts are raffled or auctioned at school events and all the proceeds go to Scholarships.   I just love being able to use my passion for quilting to help my favorite school!!!  So when I saw that Riley Blake is coming out with a Red Hot Fabric Line that has 21 Red on White and 21 White on Red prints, the gears started churning!!!   I popped over to EQ8 and came up with 5 quilts in these fabrics, I just couldn't stop :)   They are so easy because all I have to do is pop in the prints into a design and add a black background.  The first quilt I designed is going to be a free tutorial in February, (more coming) and the second is going to be a picnic size version of my Ring Around the Rosies Quilt from Charming Baby Quilts ;)   Isn't that just so fun!!!   So ya, lots of Red, White, and Black for 2022!!  

And finally, I always try to make a Scrap Quilt or two each year.  This year I made the Cabin Among the Stars Quilt to par down my Neutrals scrap bucket, and the Stacked Squares Quilt to par down my Low Volume scrap bucket.   So for 2022, It's back to a Rainbow of scraps!!!   And I have some fun ideas for using up all these little rainbow scraps.  And I am so grateful that my AccuQuilt will make quick work of the cutting!!!   Truly, when it comes to scrap quilts, (especially small scraps)  I have found my AccuQuilt is my best friend, it just saves so much time :)   And ya know, time is that thing that I always seem to be running short on, as here I am planning for 2022 when I still have 25+ quilt tops to quilt, tee hee hee.   

So how about you . . . any plans starting to percolate for 2022 quilts??   What is on your To Make List that you just know you are going to cross off in 2022???  

Pin It!


  1. You've got big plans. I'll enjoy watching your progress. I've definitely been working on a plan, but I probably won't post it until later this month.

  2. You have such ambitious plans. It will be exciting to see them come to fruition.

  3. It looks like it is going to be a great new year of quilting for you.

  4. I still have a few UFO/WIPs to complete, and like you, I have a pile to quilt. I need a few quilts as gifties, and am going the scrappy route, I have more fabric than the years are going to allow me to use!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
