Thread: Is there a quilt pattern, style or a quilting type that you have no desire to ever make?

    I ask this because most of us seem to really enjoy looking at everyone's project and then want to make them ourselves. I know I have a whole list bookmarked for future projects.

    However I have no desire to ever make a rag quilt. I've seen many here that i really like and I have a friend that makes gorgeous ones from plaids and homespun fabrics. If i was ever given one I would use and cherish it. But i don't want to make one myself. It just doesn't look fun to make to me.

    How about you...anything you have no desire to make?

    At this point I have no desire to make a One Block Wonder. What I have seen are beautiful and everyone has done a great job with them. They just don't appeal to me.

    I agree with both of you! Rag quilts and One Block Wonders don't interest me at all. And I don't like Civil War patterns and colors either.

    OBW! It's pretty but not something I desire to make. I too do not like the civil was repros.

    Yes...I have many bookmarks and an endless list of "want-to-dos", but I just don't see a bargello in my future. I do admire and appreciate the difficulty and see their beauty, just not my "cup of tea".

    Scrappy. I like some of the ones I've seen, but have no desire to do one. I don't know why I'm hanging on to my scraps, I should just junk them.

    I have no desire to do any quilt that is paper pieced. Tried it a couple of times and it nearly drove me batty! I like the looks of them, but I'll be sticking with patchwork.

    I may be banished for saying this but I have no desire to do anything batik. I have all kinds of stash but not batiks.
    I also don't want to do a OBW, or a bargello, or another rag quilt, already did a couple.
    But I do love civil war prints, want do try some Kim Deihl patterns.

    A bargello is probably not in my future-but that could change. I don't believe I'll do a quilt with black in it. I remember thinking batiks were the ugliest fabric known to man-now I LOVE them.

    Don't junk your scraps. There are many who would love to have them.

    Bargello, OBW/Stack and whack, Triple Irish Chain. Those are on the top of my list of "when hell freezes over" projects.

    I have no desire to make a paper pieced quilt. It would drive me batty. and very quickly.

    I prefer not to make scrappy, bargello, triple irish chain or hexagons. I probably won't make rail fence either. But, who knows. After I have made the thousands of others I would like to make, I just may change my mind. I've been known to do that on occassion. I still haven't figured out OBW and stack and whack so I'm not sure about those.

    A sampler. I like all the blocks to look the same or at least some kind of pattern to it.

    Oooh, yeah. A sampler is definitely on my "NOT" list. Along with any thing that involves UN-sewing, like a tube bargello. I've done a strip bargello, but ixnay on the ubtay!

    I never say never, my taste will change over the Years I'm sure and you just don't know what the future will inspire.

    Same here...tried OBW and hated the points in the centre - too bulky...tried paper piecing - I think it's beyond me...so I'll stick to patchwork and overworking my imagination!

    I like to make all kinds of quilts, but paper piecing is not my favorite.

    I love looking at all the bargello quilts here but I would never try to make one. And I can not do scrappy,just cant. I need balance and organization.
