Last year I made 9 quilts. The year before it was 14. I guess life was busy, but this is not a race and although the list of quilts I want to make is never-ending, I am determined to enjoy every stitch. I love making lists, but this one changes all the time as I am inspired by new quilts that come to my attention or a need arises. Still, it's fun for me to begin the new year with a fresh list.
1. The scrap quilt I'm making for a sick friend.
2. A baby quilt for our girl's college friend's 1st child
3. A western scrap quilt to donate to the WRCA's auction - pattern to be determined - maybe this year I can close the lid of this bin
4. A flannel quilt using this FQ bundle I've had in my stash for years
5. A QOV or 2 - I have a Carpenter Star started and hope to build on it:
6. Wildflowers - I haven't decided on fabric for this yet. It calls for a Layer Cake, but I'm planning on pulling something from my stash
7. Dizzy Daisy - using the Garden Delights Layer Cake I have
8. Modern Greek Cross - using the Ella and Ollie Layer Cake I have
9. Economie Zoologie - this was a kit I bought from Craftsy a few years ago
10. Jellystone - from Miss Rosie's Spice of Life book - I still need to cut the background, but the rest is cut - using fabric from my stash
11. A kid's quilt using this fabric because I'm cleaning out, this bin is also full, and this fabric wouldn't fit
I could easily double...or triple... this list, but I think this is doable and I've still got 9 quilts at Jackie's that will need binding when I get them back. I think I was pretty good about not bringing too much fabric home last year, but I'm hoping to bring in even less in the coming year. Don't all quilters say that? 😏 I am not bringing anymore Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls or kits into this house though. Let the stitching begin
