2019 Quilt List

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

I enjoy your blog. However my eyes have a really hard time with the dark background and white print. Just FYI.

An admirable list -- they're all gonna be great! I have over 50 tops in my to-be-quilted pile, so I hope to get lots of finishes this year, if I can find time to quilt some for myself!

❤️ all of these projects! I need to make a list but haven't put pen to paper yet. QsOV and a Christmas quilt will be high on the list.

Haha famous last words! I am in awe of your long list. I only manage two or three a year....I think I make them too big.

I have a list going, too. Really want to get to the business of finishing a few I started in the last three years. Started making quilt for granddaughter's graduation "2020", and like you, using up some layer cakes. Maybe it's my slow growing cataracts, but I have a little trouble with the dark background and white print, also. Oh, the joys of growing older....LOL!!!!!

Happy New Year, love your list, but like others have difficulty with the background colour of your blog

Looks like a great list Karin, good luck getting them done. I only have 2 on my list that I want to make and one of my pile of need-to-be-quilted that HAS to be quilted..hopefully I can get a few more than that quilted too.

A great list/plan! The fabrics you have chosen are beautiful--am trying to stitch from stash but an on-going challenge

Oh, to be so organized!

Another New Year list of projects. I have to take the time to do this. I really need to make a list of the projects purchased and not started/finished and stop looking at new projects.

Good morning! I’m currently sewing Moose Munch, a color variation of the 501 quilt in Miss Rosie’s Spice of Life. I look forward to reading about Jellystone in a future post. I appreciate this wonderful blog - interesting topics and warm tone. Thank you and best wishes. Tama from Leawood, Kansas
