My great grandmother made a quilt with hand stitched umbrellas.  I have the original and want to make a reproduction of her design.  The handles of the umbrella are embroidered and the applique umbrellas are blanket stitched on.  I remember some of the fabric was from clothes she made me.

I have had the pattern for years and have not had the courage to start, this year (before 2014) I hope to make a "Grandmothers Garden Quilt".  I may not finish even a twin size, but if I can finish at least 4 blocks, I will feel I tried! I enjoy applique, but I am not good at it, so that quilt will be a challenge.!

I have plans to make a Irish chain using scraps that I have been collecting. When I have scraps I check if they can  be cutting into 1 1/2 strips or squares. I will need to add a solid white, ivory or maybe even black to fininsh. Of course I still have some UFO's to finish first.

Starting with an Irish chain with scraps from all the past quilts, then on to a braid with a hexagon ruler I purchased a few years back. I hope to stay busy all year long sewing, quilting, and gardening.

I would love to make the "4 Patch Posie".   It is where you take 4 layers of a fabric and line them up so that the motif is layered exactly the same on top of each other on all four pieces.....then cut into 4 squares.  Depending where you make the cut, you can have various ways to make different blocks, but all the same color scheme.   Has anyone made this?

I plan to make a Hidden Wells quilt for my 18 yr old son who was just diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.  I have also been collecting reproduction fabrics for Double Wedding Ring quilts and plan to make them (start anyway) this year for each of my 2 sons. I thought starting the wedding ring quilts now might ensure their completion by the time the as yet undetermined brides are found and dates are set. Since my sisters wedding gift quilt (started in 1985) is still a UFO, this is probably a lofty plan.

But life got in the way with 2 kids and everything that goes with that and the blocks got lost in a move. About 4 years ago I brought the fabric for a new one.

I've been quilting for about 3 years now and every quilt I see I want to make.  My husband would like one made from his old neck ties.  I have to find a good pattern.  He certainly derserves one since I've made one for most everyone in the family.  I find myself in the middle of making a quilt thinking of my next project.  So many quilts so little time.

I'd like to make double wedding ring quilts for my children and I hope to quilt a special quilt for the grandchildren to use when they visit from pieces of different character sheets their parents used when they were children. The most unusual "quilt" in my plans will be my tile floor "quilts." I've purchased tile to create a double nine patch design in green and white for my clutter room/craft room and planned it out, I need to have some other work done in the room before I can begin but am really looking forward to this. I've learned that quilting and tile work is much the same-at least in the design stage. I have tiled 3 rooms, 2 with special patterns -one of them with walls, floor, tub and shower all tiled in patterns I designed and I have plans for 4 more rooms I hope to complete this year.

My Bucket list quilt is a double wedding ring. Specifically FLOWERS FOR MY WEDDING QUILT PATTERN by Judy  Niemeyer. I purchased the pattern, but the directions have me so confused. It is strip piecing for the rings. So, I will eventually do a double wedding ring quilt and I want to use the foundation paper piecing. I have been practicing, and am having some good results. I did not do it with the strips though and I don't think I will. I have a niece who will get married some day and I hope to give her the quilt as a gift. I keep saying I want to get started. Maybe this year.

My bucket list for this year begins with several quilts that I started at various times in my life but never finished.  I found two of these such quilts while trying to organize some of my fabric drawers.  One is Vertical Drop found in Jelly Roll Inspirations,and the other one I am working on at the same time is Dessert Time by Eleanor Burns.  I am also getting ready to start on a quilt for my girlfriend's son's wedding in April.  Since their place is done in neutrals, I have been gathering batiks to make Eleanor Burns' Friendship Braid King Size.  I have never made a king size quilt and have never made the braid so this will be an interesting adventure.  I sure hope it turns out nice since it will be a gift.  Beyond that, I am going to begin the Chloe quilt which is embroidered it is beautiful.  This one will be my most challenging one and I will be joining an embroidery block of the month group at a local quilt shop.  Can't wait to try this one.  I could go on and on with all the quilts I would like to finish but I will stop here.

I've got the fabrics, and book, to make the egg money quilt (quilt in a day).   Not generally crazy about 30's fabrics, but saw it made up when visiting the QIAD shop in southern CA about 2 years ago. It was beautiful.  Have been accumulating fabrics, and am 'just about' ready to tackle it!  

This, and about 25 'UFO"s'.  Probably 25 is not counting them all!  Should make for an interesting challnge!  Just FINDING all the UFO's!  Better get to sewing!

I've been collecting patterns that I want to make for a long time. The one that stands out in my mind is a free pattern from  2010 by Henry Glass & Co called "Sonoma", fabrics designed by Freancelle Contreras. By now (3 yrs later) I'm sure the fabrics would be impossible to find so I've started collecting fabrics and I almost have enough to make this beautiful quilt.

I bought it at an estate sale.  My dream is to applique this block in reproduction red and green and finish the four block with appliqued borders as I believe the original quilt was first designed.  This quilt square is framed and hangs on the wall in my living room as a reminder of the quilt I have yet to make, the history of quilting, and quilters that have worked with thread and needle before me.

My bucket list is not made up of patterns that I want to make.  I am not intimidated by any pattern.  Rather my projects are driven my a particular fabric saying it wants to be a particular part of a pattern.  An example - I found this fabric with a design in it that resembles a sine wave ( a curving line that undulates back and forth ) I immediately saw that wave as the central focus of the main point of a 30 inch Mariner's Compass.  From there the rest of the fabrics are chosen to co-ordinate and enhance the design.  When I get started on an idea get out of my way! I'm on a roll.

I don't think about doing the Mariner's Compass - a particular fabric suggests it and I go from there.  

The more complex a pattern is capable of looking (which usually involves points) the more I am drawn to it.  My style might be described as a collision of Jinny Beyer and Judy Mathieson with a touch of Paula Nadelstern thrown in.

I am living with cancer.  My bucket list is not of patterns to make but of feeling well enough to complete to finish quilts I have started - either physical in fabric or ideas in my head.  Sometimes I find it difficult to put aside the idea in my head in favor of working on a project started before I became ill.  The doctors don't know how long I may live - it is a matter of how long the chemo keeps the cancer in check.  As a consequence my priorities have to be based on the importance of completing any given element in my life.
