    I was sitting here today thinking of all the different quilts I want to make before my time is up. So I came up with about 30 MUST DO's, and was wondering what yours was like. I guess if someone would lock me in my sewing room (lol), I could get these done in record time!
    So, please share what quilts you would like to make before your time is up! :-D

    There is Little Brown Bird, and a whole cloth quilt on my list, but I haven't thought much beyond those.

    I'd like to make a whole cloth--in a red silk fabric,
    mariner's compass in blues and creams,
    a traditional tree of life but in bold colors,
    a traditional red and green applique quilt with appliqued borders and maybe scallops.
    I'd also like to make copies of all the gorgeous ones I keep seeing in mags and books.!

    This is a good subject. Since I hae been given a date. My bucket list is done. I have done all I want and given quilts to every member of my large family. Now I hope when I go I have more laying around here for them to share. I have quitls on every wall, on couches, racks, posts, etc. and on the beds. So I am happy to report, my bucket list is fulfilled. Hope to do more but don't have a bucket list. I guess my last wish on the bucket list is to be a member of this board for as long as I can and keep the friends I have made.

    I had decided earlier today that I can't possibly die for at least ten years because I have so much I *have* to do. Later I'll make my bucket list, later. :lol:

    Sometimes I truly get overwhelmed by all the things I see, the fabric that is out there, all the gadgets, etc.
    I want to make TOO MANY QUILTS !!

    one quilt for everyone in our family. I look at all patterns and am venturing out, but I don't want to try very complicated ones. Hugs and Kisses one now for newbie Flora Jane.

    I will have to live for another 100 years and win several lotteries in order to make all of the quilts that I want to make!

    I'm just going to take it one day at a time and do what I can. If I don't get them all done that I want, then they'll pass onto my 2 girls. It'll honestly take that long to get them done too! :lol:

    Let's see. A landscape quilt, mariner's compass, and a whole lot of others that I can't think of now, but I have lots of books and patterns that I want to make. Oh and I have a Jacobean applique book that I am looking forward to designing a quilt from.
