    I have too many to only pick 3...and I am needing to finish projects I have already started for now...but to answer the question...I would say any quilt from a Kim Diehl book, Barbara Brackman book, or Edyta Sitar...I love all their quilt designs!

    I don't have a bucket list. I do have an idea file of interesting quilt pictures if I ever run out of quilts I want to do. So far I have not had to look through my file because the pictures on QB keep me busy enough.

    Each time I obtain a new magazine or quilt book, there are at least 2-3 more quilts I think I need to make. Safe to say my bucket doesn't have a bottom!

    My three include Etyda Sitar's Eldon, hand stitched and hand quilters Grandmither's Flower Garden, and the Diamond Jubille Bargella. These will take me years to do since there will be lots of other projects along the way!

    Too many patterns already put in my "to be done possibilities" book. It seems that I add a couple of patterns with every quilt magazine.... ugh!

    I need a bigger bucket.

    I just bought the Eldon pattern and templates.
    I have lots of Judy Niemeyer patterns - want to make them all.
    Almost every day I see another new design that calls my name.
    And so many of the traditional designs! I've made several log cabins, (diamond and square) but I think that will forever be my favorite.

    I can never decide. If a project sneaks in I don't worry usually because I have seen a new technique and must have a go.
    If not sure what to do I have a small box ( getting bigger) with small pieces of paper with quilt name and location of pattern . I dip my hand in and pick one.

    If I didn't do this it would take me ages to start as I would spend ages just looking for a pattern and becoming frustrated.

    I keep an 'inspiration' folder and notebook. As my bucket list continues to grow, I re-evaluate the priority of my projects. To narrow it down:
    1. French Braid
    2. Lone Star
    3. Mariner's Compass

    I had to look up that pattern up. WOW!
    I love Log Cabins: what a fabulous variation and inspiring story! Mahalo for bringing it to my attention.
