Quilty Bucket List

There are so many quilts that I hope to make one day.  If you look at my Pinterest quilting board, there are MANY pins of quilts that I hope to make some day.  I am sure that there are many more that will somehow make their way on to the list/board.  Unfortunately, some quilt projects get pushed further down the to-do list.   Stacey at The Tilted Quilt is hosting the Quilty Bucket List!   These are just a few of the quilts on my Quilty Bucket List.

Hex-Plus Quilt


This quilt is in the queue for 2014.  I have the pattern and the fabric for the top and binding.  Only need to purchase the backing.  The plan is to make the Hex-Plus quit from Crazy Old Ladies Quilt in Saltwater by Tula Pink.  I have been trying to find the right pattern for Salt Water.  When I saw this, I knew I didn’t want to mess with perfection.

Houndstooth Quilt


Vanessa from V & Co have a great pattern for this quilt.  I am partial to red and white quilts.  However, I may branch out and try a different color combination.

Carolina Patchworks Groove


I have the pattern, but stuck on my color choices.   I have been thinking about making the quilt in this color scheme.


Amish with a Twist II 


I purchased this quilt kit in the spring of 2013.  It is a block of the month kit, but that hasn’t helped me start the project!  I love the use of solids.  The colors and pattern are so simple but have such an impact.  I really like that there is no appliqué with this kit.  The original Amish with a Twist quilt had plenty of appliqué and it isn’t something that I am really comfortable with.  I would hate to ruin a quilt with my subpar appliqué skills.

Little Vines Quilt


I looove this quilt.  Elizabeth Hartman has a block tutorial on her Oh, Fransson! blog.   When  I feel comfortable with appliqué, I will definitely attempt this quilt.  The size is a bit intimidating with 25 blocks.

Main Street Designs Modern Asterisk


I have the pattern and the templates needed.  I just have to decide which fabric to use.  I like how the chevrons add movement and make the asterisks more eye-catching.

Red & White Spiral


I dream about making this quilt.  First I have to learn how to paper piece.  I am taking my first paper piecing class this June at the 2014 MN Quilt Show.  Julie and I, are taking a class from Elizabeth Dackson who blogs at Don’t Call Me Betsy.

My Quilty Bucket List is a mix of quilts that I need to find time to make, fabric choices, and new skills to learn.   What an exciting future of quilting!

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.

    A friend of mine was working on the red & white spiral on retreat last weekend. It is amazingly stunning!

  7. That Red and White Spiral is to die for – is that a pattern? I am a total sucker for a red/white quilt. I’ve also never seen that asterisk quilt before, but it just calls to me. I may be looking that one up soon. Thanks so much for linking up, you’ve definitely inspired me today!

    Well I don’t have a bucket list but I could just jump on yours. Almost everyone you have up I want to do too. Good luck on yours.

    what a brilliant list, it’s so different to all the others I’ve read. i love the vines quilt and the Amish with a Twist is gorgeous

    • Thank you for the compliment! I can hardly wait to start on some of those quilts. I think the Amish with the Twist will be my next project after the Triangle Quilt Along. Thanks for stopping by!
