Happy New Year - what are your goals this year?

My goals haven't changed much in the past few years - I just want to try and use up my stash!  And now I have more...is that good or bad?
My penpal in Japan sent me these stunning fat quarters in Japanese fabrics, for Christmas.  They arrived last Friday and I have been fondling them ever since :-)   in between surfing Google and Pinterest for ideas on how to use them.

Here are some photos from Pinterest that I have in mind for my fabrics.  I don't do complex designs as my readers know!  Especially when each piece of fabric deserves to be showcased, and not cut up into small bits.  Some people can do that extremely well, but I'm not one of them.

Great quilt choices for your lovely fabrics, they'll showcase the fabrics beautifully.

Always trying to use up stash and always finding I don't have just the right thing so I buy more! I think it is a common problem. Your new fabric is gorgeous and any of those models would be a great way to use them!

they are lovely ideas but the black i feel would over power the fabrics, as that's all i see in the ideas is the black stripes coming towards me, perhaps a lighter colour for the borders rather than a straight out black, perhaps charcoal or even a grey of colour? you are right, they are deserving of the spotlight they are very beautiful
thanx for sharing

Now that is my style of quilt, big pieces and a fab border.
