    We all have them. And if we say we don't, it just means that ours is in our heads, rather than on paper/whiteboards/folders. I'm talking about our "To-Do" lists, more specifically, our QUILTING To-Do lists.

    As I find pics on the internet (mainly this wonderful board), I save pics I like to a folder titled, "Quilts To Try" and there they sit until I get around to them. The more pressing projects or ones I particularly want to start right away go on a list on a whiteboard in my sewing room. I started one before I even knew all the basics of quilting never once emptied the list since I just kept adding to it. Some of the pics in my folder are even floor designs (hardwood and tile) that I want to convert to quilt patterns.

    So, my question is this; what's on your Quilting To-Do list right now? What are the quilts you want to try or challenge yourself with??

    My Dad had a log cabin on his farm by his farm pond. My youngest son loves that cabin and spends quite a lot of time there. I have a wonderful picture of it. I would like to make him a quilt with that cabin and the water as my center block. I don't want to copy a picture of it, I would like to make it from fabric. Still contemplating exactly how I am going to do it.

    My list is so long it would be like a book. I keep looking at them and rearranging the order that I want to do them in. So maybe someday I'll get most of them done. The list gets longer and longer.

    ooh my, a long list, a crazy quilt (saving up velvets, silks etc for it), a special quilt for my Mom (all lavenders), a special quilt for each daughter (patterns to be determined), a sunbonnet sun for one daughter, a double wedding (just because I have always loved the pattern), a special quilt for DH (will have to have some Tennesse orange), a big boy quilt for DGS for when he gets his big boy bed. Nuff said, I will never get them all done.

    Because of the board I have added to my list quilts I didn't even know I wanted to make. The board opened the world of quilting that I did not know existed. :) I'm in heaven, well almost:)

    Oh my! I have a mighty long list! Then I add things to it like wanting to do an "Omigosh" quilt, and some totes. Joining in the swaps doesn't help the list at all either!
    But I love it all! :)

    I think I'm probably the only one here that does one (1) quilt at a time (actually, one (1) project at a time). Thus I will "think" about what the next quilt will be when I finish the one I'm working on right now ---------- back to contemplating my OBW layout!

    I guess we men quilters don't need to make "to do" lists.

    I call this my "Quilting Bucket list". Besides the numerous UFO's and WIP's, I want to do a Double Wedding Ring, another Bargello, a scrappy log-cabin, and a batik log-cabin, plus try some more of Jinny Beyer designs. In my spare time I will..........

    I don't think I want o sit here and type it all out. But I must say with my ultraorganized brain, I actually go through my to-do list every month and update the calendar with quilts I may tackle that month. Love corssimg stuff of the list, but it seems that new quilts make their way to the list way faster than I cross them off,lol.
    Right now, I am in a Lone Star mode!
