Thread: A quilting bucket list?

    A quilting bucket list?

    What is the quilt(s) that you want to do/finish before you die? Mine is a queen or king-size Broken Star quilt. For those who don't know what this pattern looks like, here is an example - http://www.amishcountrylanes.com/Pages/hs92.shtml

    So, what quilt is on your bucket list?

    A quilt for me to use as a bedspread, so something queen or king-sized. The idea mulling around in my brain is something involving a large mariner's compass, but it's far from designed.

    I do also want to make a hexie quilt--I might be away from my machine for a while this coming summer, so that might be a good time to work on a hand-sewn project.

    I want to do a bed sized double wedding ring. My mom had one that was made by a grandmother and it got used and loved to shreds during my childhood. I remember that quilt as the inspiration for my interest in quilting.

    I want to do both the Double Wedding Ring and the Snake River Log Cabin in queen size. However, I've got several to do before I think I will be experienced enough to tackle them.

    Judy Neimeyer bali wedding ring star, Starburst, and Diamond wedding ring, amongst others. (Unlike 4EVERquilt...they're not on my mind, they're in the sewingroom cupboards.)

    storm at sea, just right in blues and greys to give an almost nausea inducing sense of motion.

    mariners compass, with perfect points.

    and a tree of life/medallion quilt using the most gorgeous, unbelievably sumptuous william morris fabrics

    Top of the list would be a OBW but there are many others. Must finish UFOs first.

    #1Grandmother's Fan, all in blues and white. #2. Sampler in black and pinks and finally #3. Crazy Quilt.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Oh die, I'm going to quilters heaven. Full of fabric you never dreamed off. I will never finish my bucket list so glad I'm going there.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I'd have to live to be 300 yrs old to finish my bucket list. I keep seeing quilts I want to hand applique. I've been working on my current one for over a year. Then there are the paper pieced ones, and the whole cloth, and the intricate pieced ones and the hexies, and the machine appliqued, and the art quilts....so many quilts, so little time, sigh

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I've made three "bedspread" size Double Wedding Ring quilts. Just get one family member taken care of and then another family member guilts me into making them one also.....I know there are patterns out there other than the DWR but can't seem to convince my family of that!! I've got that particular pattern "down to a science." !!

    I have way too many on my bucket list. At 63, I need to make haste to even get a fraction of them made. I got a late start at this quilting stuff four years ago, so I have miles to go before I quit!!
