My head has been spinning since I got home from Oklahoma a week ago with all of the quilt projects I want to start — right this minute! It’s been difficult to choose the one I’ll start first. In fact, I still haven’t picked one. So, I thought it might help if I made a list of them for us all to see. Here goes….
- I want to finish hand piecing the pink hexagon quilt I’ve started for my grandson. Yes, he likes pink and I’m perfectly fine with that.
- I’d like to make a quilt like my hubby’s quilt for me to use at my son’s house. Since I want to use fabric I have on hand (my goal is no new fabric this year), I’ll either use the black and whites I have or white muslin for the back of this one. My youngest granddaughter has started one like this also, I’d like to help her finish it.
- I need to finish my oldest granddaughter’s fourteen year old quilt in progress. I found the fabric I need to finish it when I was in Oklahoma!
- I’ve wanted to make a bed sized pineapple quilt like the black and scrap batik miniature pineapple quilts I’ve made in the past. The mini has blocks smaller than three inches square. The bed sized quilt will have ten inch blocks.
Another quilt I’m chomping at the bit to start is a Plus quilt using the Terra Australis fat quarter bundle I bought recently. I don’t think I’ve ever bought a fat quarter bundle of a complete fabric line before, but I fell hard for this one when I saw it. I am totally in love with the fabric I photographed alone in the top photo! I wish I had enough of it to back the whole quilt. Alas, I have only the one fat quarter of it. It will be difficult to cut into that one.
Of course, there will be other quilts that will make their desire to be made known to me over the next year. I hope I can get them all done and have them being used and loved before the end of 2015! I’ll let you know how I do as I work on them.
