Quilty Bucket List

Stacey at The Tilted Quilt is hosting a Quilt Bucket List Blog Hop.

The Tilted Quilt

So without further ado here is my quilty bucket list (sorry, it's a bit picture heavy):

1) Rainbow Quilt: I love color, and I love lots of colors in one quilt, it's surprising that I haven't made one yet.
2) String Quilt: I love the look of string quilts, but I usually cut my scraps into squares, so there aren't many scraps to be turned into strings. I'm working on it though. I especially would love to make a spiderweb quilt.
3) Selvage Quilt: I've been hoarding my selvages for almost two years now and it's about time I do something with them.
4) All Solids Quilt: I am thinking either the Burgoyne Surround quilt, the Perkiomen Daydream by Bonnie Hunter, but with solids, or the Totally Groovy Quilt by Carolina Patchworks.
5) Memory/Journal Quilt: I am currently working on a DWR and an Octagonal Block variation, but I'm falling behind in making those pieces for each quilt I've completed.
6) Kate Spain Quilt(s): I have every one of her lines now, three FQ bundles (Verna, Central Park, and Serenade), one Layer Cake (Sunshine), and many Charm Packs. I want to make a Belle Waves Quilt by Faith Jones out of one of them, and I'm leaning towards Verna, but still need to figure out what background solid to use. I also want to make a house quilt using either the Christmas line Charm Packs or the "regular" line Charm Packs. The rest I still need to figure out.
7) A Paper-Pieced Theme Quilt: I am leaning towards Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter. Fandom in Stitches has some great patterns, including Princess Bride, Dr. Who (although I'm not a Whovian), Disney Princesses, etc.

So there you have it, my quilty bucket list. If only people didn't keep getting married or having children... :)

  1. GREAT list - love me some rainbow quilts, for sure!! Also, I'm on board with a string quilt and an all solids quilt as well. Thank you so much for linking up and playing along this month ~ I am so inspired to continue to challenge myself to make some of the quilts on my list!!

  2. That selvedge quilt is AMAZING, you have a lot of great things on your list. Good luck!

  3. I've always wanted to make a spiderweb quilt, too. I started one once, using truly random scraps and alternating light/dark strips, and it was just plain ugly! I'll try again sometime, though. A really nice list, good luck!

  4. This is a great list! I can't wait to share mine in a week or two! Is it bad that every time I see someone else's list I want to add to mine? The curse / benefit of going last? :D

  5. that is a great list! I love rainbow quilts too and a ticker tape one is on my list. I have a bundle of Cuzco which I'm going to use for one of the quilts on my bucket list.
