My quilty bucket list is very long, but it changes constantly. I'll buy some fabric with a quilt in mind, but by the time I get around to making it I have either forgotten what I wanted to make or changed my mind. But some things have been on my list for a very long time and I really must get to them. These are my top 5 at the moment.
The first is an equilateral triangle quilt and when I saw Nicky's I knew I had to make a lush, rich looking quilt with my AMH Dowry and True Colors fabrics. Nicky's quilt is so beautifully made and quilted and she even used velvet ribbon to bind it. I MUST MAKE THIS QUILT SOON!
Next is a Single Girl quilt. Pattern by Denyse Schmidt. This was the first quilt pattern I ever bought and I still have not made it. I remember seeing Denyse on the Martha Stewart Show talking about her quilts, so that tells you how long I have had this pattern.
A Gees Bend inspired quilt. These quilts have fascinated me even before I took up quilting. I just find them so beautiful. But improv and I don't get along very well so I need to lose some of my "rules girl" attitude before I can tackle this project. I know this, it would be in all solid fabric.

The last thing on my list (not really the last, but the last of my list of 5 for today) is to hand quilt a quilt. This is a huge challenge for me. My dear friend from high school has only ever hand quilted. I think I need to spend a weekend with her so she can show me the tricks I need to know. I have tried, but getting the stitches to be evenly sized was way too stressful.
So there you have it. My Quilty Bucket List. What's on your bucket list?
