How Did I Do in 2018?
Overall. I think that I did pretty well, but some of my goals will be moved to 2019.
Workshops. I accomplished this goal! I taught seven Saturday Quilting Workshops at the Tahlequah Armory and Municipal Center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Most of them were Quilt in a Day (not an affiliate link) patterns, but two were of my own design!
Pattern Designs. I am counting this as partial completion. I did complete two new designs. However, they are not for sale in my store yet.
Online Stores. I still only have an Online Quilt Shop at JANDA Bend Quilts. I dd not create an Etsy or a Craftsy store as planned.
Web Site. I accomplished this goal! I did reorganize my website and make it more user friendly as planned.
Social Media. Accomplished! I did start a JANDA Bend Facebook Group, and have used it to promote my workshops! In addition, I have improved my use of Instagram.
Quilt Alongs. After our successful I Wish You a Merry QAL quilt along, We decided to form a more formal group called Partners in Design.
Here are the members:
Abbie at Sparkle On
April at JANDA Bend Quilts <--That's me!
Bobbi at Snowy Days Quilting
Jennifer at The Inquiring Quilter
Karen at Tu-Na Quilts, Travels, and Eats
Kathleen at Kathleen McMusing
Laura at Slice of Pi Quilts
Sandra at Sandra Healy Designs
Sandy at SandyStar Designs
Sherry at Powered by Quilting
Vanda at Quilting with Vanda
We completed ourFall into a QAL quilt along in November.
In addition, I have continued to participate in the Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Alongs.
Quilt Market and Quilt Festival in Houston. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this year.
What Are My Goals for 2019?
Pattern Designs. I want to complete at least four new pattern designs this year and sell them at my Online Quilt Shop and on my new Etsy and Craftsy stores.
Quilt and Quilt Kit Sales. This year I sold my quilts at ourJANDA Bend Christmas Trees Shop and sold Pre-cut Quilt Kits at my Online Quilt Shop. Next year, I want to sell Quilts and Pre-cut Quilt Kits at my new Etsy Shop as well and expand my Pre-cut Quilt Kit offerings.
Workshops. I want to continue to offer monthly Quilt Workshops. I have already scheduled workshops through July.
Quilt Alongs. Partners in Design has scheduled a quilt along for this year. I am hosting and designing two blocks. In addition, I would like to try my own quilt along using a pattern that I designed.
Quilt Market. I want to attend either the Spring Quilt Market in Kansas City or the Fall Quilt Market in Houston this year.
Looks like another challenging year! That's the way I like it.

I am a quilter who is starting a new adventure. After retiring in May 2016, I became a certified Quilt in a Day Instructor. I am certified to teach workshops using Quilt in a Day patterns and techniques. In addition, I am designing my own quilt patterns.
