My bucket list doesn't include machines or gagets, just quilts that I'd like to do. So many ideas ... so little time. Fortunately I keep a list of "quilt ideas" in a Word document and keep adding notes to it so I can go back at any time and say "time to do that one now!".

Saw a pic of a quilt today on an Amish Quilt website that someone posted a link to. It was called "Faceted Jewel" and that one just made it to the top of my bucket list. First I need to break down the pattern, pretty sure I can do that with a trial block (or two, or three <g>).

Another quite high on my list is a mosiac.

The number one item on my bucket list has nothing to do with sewing. I have wanted a ride on the blimp since I was 7 years old (almost 50 years ago). I have lived in the Akron area all my life and still run outside and look up whenever I hear the blimp fly over!

Melanie, there are a lot of good FW's on Ebay. Read the description carefully, make sure the seller has a great record. I've bought 5 machines on ebay and every one of them is great!!! :D:D

My list would include going on a quilt retreat, going to a Martha Pullen heirloom retreat, making a grandmothers flower quilt, and a cathedral window quilt.

I want to travel and see the good old USA. There is so much to see. I would love to just get in my car and drive and see it all.

I keep a folder on my computer titled "projects to do". I guess that is my bucket list. I will have to live to be 100 to get them all done. :-D

use up my stash and make ALL of the patterns on my "must make" list. Since I will NEVER get it all done in my expected life time, I guess I'll just live forever!!LOL
