#47 My Quilty Bucket List

I love the idea of making a list
 of all the quilts I would like to make. This way maybe
 I can stay on track and start ticking off my list!!
 We will see!!!!

The Paintbox by Oh Frannson was the first quilt I saw when I first started to think about trying quilting 2 1/2 yrs. ago! The QAL had ended, and sadly I still haven't made my quilt, but it is top of my list!!

Freshly Pieced put out a new pattern last year called Diamond Tread, that I grabbed right away!! I am actually in the middle of this one!! My daughter loved the pattern too and chose it for the quilt I am making for her (and new hubby!!)

Here's the first section of the quilt in progress!!

Modern Blocks! This one I joined a QAL for and have 11 blocks done to this point. I have realized  though that I want to complete the whole book!! 

The Swoon Block by Camille Roskelley!! Love this pattern. I have gotten as far as signing up for the online Craftys class.

I want to learn free motion quilting!!  I can't think of two more qualified to learn from, their work is amazing!!
I guess I should say that quilting all the quilt tops I have made in the last 2 years is on my list too!!

And  I have a stack of quilt books that I want to make at least one quilt per book from, but probably more!!! The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt should be fun!! 
I also realized that Stash Books seem to be my favourite!!

This was fun!! 
Your Turn !!


  1. I love this list!! Thank you for linking up ~ Swoon and Farmer's Wife, both also on my list. Have fun making your quilty bucket list dreams come true :)

  2. Oh, I love your list! I had not heard of Modern Blocks before... definitely going to order that one!

  3. You have some great quilts on your list - the swoon quilt looks amazing. best of luck :)

  4. I love your list! I have some of the same books and feel the same way, I want to make at least one from each of them. :)

  5. What a great idea. I have had Storm At Sea and Pickle Dish on my list forEVer but now I have a lot more modern style quilts in my head. I still hope to get to ALL of them!

  6. Wonderful and inspiring list !
    I have the same book! Maybe I will join you with making all the blocks... later!

  7. You've got a nice list here (and some fabulous looking books!) I am going to be starting a Farmer's Wife quilt before terribly long, too :-)
    I actually made Elizabeth's paintbox quilt a couple of years ago (I wrote up a mini-tute on my now defunct crafty blog with my method for piecing a group of blocks. Here is the link, if you'd like to see it )

    Happy Sewing ~ Tracy

  8. Nice collection of black, grey and lime fabrics.

  9. My bucket list is to quilt the 40+ quilt tops I have waiting, then finish all the "quilts in progress"...then dive into making modern quilts! I have a huge stash I need to use up!! Love (and have) the two quilting books - Angela's book is fabulous and if you have a chance to take a class from her in person, grab it!! She is fabulous!!!

  10. love your Diamond Tread quilt progress! Swoon is definitely on my list, and a triangle quilt has been for awhile, which is why I'm glad to have joined the Triangle QAL by Sassy Quilter.

    Thanks so much for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!

  11. great list, I have Swoon on mine too. I've never seen the Paintbox before, love it!

  12. I love Swoon and just finished mine after 2 years. We were doing it as a BOM and I just took my time. I'm in love with the quilt though.


Thanks for stopping by!! I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment, idea, or question!!
