While I plan on sticking around this planet for quite a few more years, as I was putting together my plans for the year, I concluded that in order to sew up all the quilts currently on my bucket list, I had better start working on some of them now!
So my plan is to start making small goals of accomplishment each month toward finishing up those "I am only making one and it is for me" bucket list quilts.
First up in the queue is a Pineapple quilt. I love all pineapple quilts but I love, Love, LOVE ones with tiny pieces and planned color placement that create wonderful designs and give the eye so much to look at. Now this quilt I actually started in 2009 by sewing up 30 of these 8 inch blocks. They have been hanging on a design wall in my quilting studio ever since. I can't tell you how many times friends have said "You really need to get that quilt finished!"
So I have moved the blocks into my sewing room and I am playing around with layout ideas. I still have some final trimming on most of the blocks but my plan is to work out a design, decide on a background fabric and start working up the math to get the look I want. Now that it is in my sewing room, I am hoping to motivate myself to work on it again. It really does need to be finished!
Do you have a bucket list of quilts you want to make?
I would love to hear what type of quilts are on it!
