There’s a great blog hop that’s just started.
Yes, you guessed it ‘Quilty Bucket List‘ over at The Tilted Quilt.
I LOVE lists, I am a list kind of person. It’s my way of trying to organise my very unorganised brain! I’m not sure how helpful it actually is as I tend to make a list, look at it once, forget where I’ve put it, things change, I revise list…and so on!!
I’m hoping this will help sort things out.
1. Improv Sampler Quilt
First on the list is an improv sampler…..like this beauty:
This pic led me to the hop as Heidi of Fabric Mutt is one of the first stops. I just LOVE it!
I’ve done the old City Sampler (no finished photos yet sorry!) so I’m looking for something more relaxed and a bit haphazard (in a good way)!!!
2. Make some more clothes……
Especially tops from voile.
I’m thinking of something like this Weekend Getaway shirt by Liesl + Co. Their patterns are lovely and so easy to follow.
Look at this beautiful version over at PIENKEL
3. An FMQ project
I keep going back to this Diamond Ring quilt.
Simple, but allows a lot of scope for FMQ.
4. A Lap Duvet
I found these the other day and they look so quick, comfy and cosy, there’s no option but to have a go. I’ve been looking for the right double gauze project and this is it!
5. A nice big bag!
This fabric has been stashed away specially.
Hopefully it will be transformed soon!!
6. Reduce Fabric Stash
After seeing the above I fell head over heels with the land that never was and uh oh, look what happened…
Just need a few more to complete the set!
Then came the solids…
And there’s these….
I bought a few of these after a trip to Abakhan and then everyone now and again I add to the little pile and by some happy accident the colours seem to work really well together.
Plus if I don’t use these soon my boyfriend is going apply a fabric ban! Every time more drop through the letter box his question is: ‘Have you used those Abakhan fabrics yet?’ knowing full well I haven’t!!
6. Finish this piece of embroidery
7. Make an abstract quilt
Going to be making some journal quilts this year. So hoping these will help me come up with something! I’m thinking FMQ, applique, embroidery and lots of negative space.
8. Clothes for little O
I have quite a stack of clothes planned for my daughter. I feel a bit sorry for her as these clothes keep getting put off and put off! I think my motivation is waning because she never actually wears anything I make her!
We have however chosen a few fabrics together so I’m hoping this’ll help.
And my personal favourite Catnap!
First stop the Sally Dress!
9. Japanese Quilt
I need to use these or I’ll be very sad!
10. Medallion Quilt
Last but not least….an improv Medallion quilt.
Really fancy the idea of just working my way round bit by bit, making it up as I go along. I already have a block for the centre in mind.
So there we go, that’s my top ten. Why not have a go your self?
