Do you “kit up” projects from stash? My HeartStrings group has set aside the last week of December and the first week of January to kit up projects for 2022. While some people actually cut their projects while kitting them, I’m just choosing patterns and bundling fabrics together for quick and easy “grab and sew” projects.
Some of mine will be 3 yard quilts … I had a bin with fabric bundles set aside when I moved in June but I’ve been in and out of it for months including during Mom’s visit when we pulled a bunch of fabrics for her to make several 3 yard quilts.
I’ve assembled/re-assembled several bundles from that bin but I haven’t decided on which pattern I’ll use with which bundle yet – that’s my next task. I also kitted fabric for one of our Sharon Inspired HeartStrings quilts. I like to start with a stripe fabric for those quilts.
I have bins of precuts and purchased kits and pulled a couple projects from them. Right now I’ve got 7 projects set aside for my Grab and Sew bin and once I decide on the patterns for the 3 yard bundles I’ll add them.
I’ll also spend some time looking through my website and my quilt inspiration folder next week and come up with a list of scrappy quilts I’d like to make in 2022. I won’t cut them out yet but just having a list of scrap quilts to work from will make it easier to get started.
Have you started to think about what you want to work on in 2022?
