Stacey at The Tilted Quilt put together a Quilty Bucket List Blog hop.
It’s a fun and easy blog hop that is just a wish list. We aren’t required to make these in a time frame and there’s no due date. Great for me right now.
I found it interesting to think about what might be on my to do list. One thing that occurred to me during this process is that the fabrics and the colors are a huge influence in my favorites, as much or more than the patterns.
Primary colors and jewel tones really draw my eye. A few of the quilts below have been done in very traditional fabrics, bright modern patterns, solids and neutrals. For me the patterns totally change with the fabrics.
If I had a quilty bucket list (and, honestly, don’t we all? It may only be in the back of our mind, but it’s there.), this would be it.
Dear Jane / Farmer’s Wife samplers:
Instead of using the Dear Jane or other pattern groups, I plan to use a selection of patterns from BlockBase and basically create my own sampler. I’m loving the colors in this sampler.
I have been drawn to the Economy Block quilt lately.
For a couple years now, I have wanted to make a triangle quilt. I really would like to get some fabric together and make this happen. Here are a couple of my favorites.
Top on my list is a whole cloth quilt. There are a couple ideas for this one. I’ve played with a design here:
And I’ve also created a larger version of Tula Pink‘s owl from Full Moon Forrest. I fell in love with Tula Pink when I found this line..and of course it was already out of print. I would love to use this owl as a center piece of a whole cloth quilt. I would have to figure out a border and filler that would compliment this sweet owl.
So there’s my quilty bucket list. And we haven’t even talked about my sewing bucket list. I really need more hours in the day!!
