    Smile What Quilts are on your Bucket List?

    Since I began quilting way back in the "olden days" (mid-1990's...LOL), I have maintained a list of quilts that I want to make. This is my bucket list (in no particular order). What's on your bucket list?

    "Third Weekend in October" (a WIP)
    I Spy quilt
    "Dear Jane"
    "Farmer's Wife"
    Millefiore Hexi quilt
    Judy Niemeyer quilt (don't know which one yet)
    Bookshelf quilt

    Can't wait to see what quilts are on your lists!

    The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.

    I haven't been quilting that long (little over a year), so several of the quilts on my bucket list are way outside of my current abilities. They're something to work towards, though!

    Tumbling Blocks
    Inner City (I love 3D quilts!)
    Judy Niemeyer's Fire Island Hosta (WAAAAAAY outside of my abilities; I don't even know how to paper piece! )
    New York Beauty

    The ones that I could do now but haven't gotten around to yet :

    Double Irish Chain
    Rail Fence
    Spool quilt

    Exactly what I was thinking. I would start with New York Beauty, Shimmer, Blooming 9-Patch, and some type of paper-pieced star.

    I only know which ones I don't want to make (Grandmother's Flower Garden and Pineapple) and the ones I don't want to make again (Bubble and rag) Anything else is a crap shoot at this point.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Just saw a new tutorial today for New York Beauty on http://iquilt.com I was thinking of making it. I've also been eyeing the Underwater Rhapsody quilt kit I have seen in the AQS catalog every month for the past 18 months. I'd like to try a GFG at some point, maybe with the leftover fabrics from my Calico Gardens quilt. And, of course, I have close to a dozen original designs I'd like to see come to life at some point.

    So many quilts, so little time (& money!)!

    I had a bucket list but at present I have no mojo to do any. Waiting for its return.

    My bucket list is too long to list. Seems like I add something to it every time I go to the 'pictures' section of the board.

    I have to agree with maryb119. The picture section is pure eye candy. I have a two colour Bargello next on my 'absolutely must make' because it will be a gift for DS and DDIL. I also have a GMFG that will take the rest of my life to complete--but that's okay. Other than those:

    a variation of Toile Stars
    Ode to the 1930's sampler--I have the pattern!
    Farmer's wife (could never do a Dear Jane but just might manage this one)

    and the list goes on and on and on...
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I don't have a bucket list. I have too many quilts to finish.

    Neither do I. I decide what to do next when I'm pretty near finished with what I'm working on now.

    I'd thought to do a Lucy Boston, but I looked at so many images of the blocks I just got 'full' of it.

    New York Beauty, Mariner's Compass, and Lone Star are my 3 top ones. But there so many I wouldn't know where to stop!
    If I'm too busy to quilt, something else has to go.

    I think a better list for me is what quilts will I never do!.....Double Wedding Ring, any applique (seriously don't enjoy it), anything with curved piecing.....everything else is on my "to do" list!

    Dito here! There are just too many quilts I'd love to do... Most of the inspiration comes from pictures I see here or in other places online.

    I have more like themes of quilts I wanna do than actual patterns (even though I have plenty of those too, like a triangle quilt). I want do a snow inspired quilt, space, christmas, etc

    I love so many quilts, but some I want to tackle next year are

    - a Tennesee waltz
    - a hawaiian quilt
    - a star's and flying geese quilt
    - an art quilt (for the guilt's competition)

    Let's see how far I'll get.
