Ok, after reading the last 10 pages of posts, I'll just have to join in I guess.
In a similar effort to hold myself accountable to the sheer number of quilts I have to make for friends and families who all seem to be eloping & getting pregnant in the last year, I started a blog this past fall called The Quilt List
. My goal is to get through all of them this year, though I have a feeling something might get pushed back. And that something might sadly end up being my own new bed quilt and the Vintage 1940's Quilt.
1. Costume Shop Quilt 2. QFK Princess Quilt 3-5 QFK Purple Paisley NICU Quilt 6. Mug Rugs for Craftster Swap
7. Brother & SIL New Baby Quilt - Mia's Strawberry Shortcake Quilt
SIL Jennifer's Wedding Quilt Scrappy Trails pattern
from Etsy seller CarleneWestberg
made with Grand Finale
by Sandy Gervais.
9. David & Amanda's Baby Quilt
- This was more of a blanket than a quilt, but I'm counting it anyways. I bagged out a cute fabric and some polar fleece, then top stitched the edges, quilted the two layers together and added it to the pile of goodies created by the students in my costume shop for our friends new baby. They got a bunch of fun onesies, bibs of vintage fabrics, stuffed animals, and the blanket.
10. Cousin Nicole's Baby Girl Quilt - Oh Fransson's Mix Tape Quilt.
11. Cousin Mae's Wedding Quilt - Eloped, and so is on hold for now. Shades of sapphire & emerald, probably made from this jelly roll: Ocen Mist Island Batiks
. Pattern from a magazine, I'll try to scan soon.
12. Cousin Maggie's Wedding Quilt - twin sister of Cousin Mae, also eloped. No idea what her quilt will be yet. Maybe a Raw Edge Circle quilt out of either Sugar Plum
Layer Cakes. Or if I'm really feeling adventurous, Central Park by Kate Spain
13. Mom & Dad's Memory Quilt - This one is on hold while I have printer issues. (Printing sepia toned family photographs onto fabric, then turning those into blocks and making a giant quilt.
14. My New Bed Quilt - a stunning Batik pattern I found in a magazine. I'll try to scan the pattern photo to show you all. I fell so in love with it I'm going to make it in the exact same color scheme and everything.
15. Complete a Vintage 1940's Quilt Top - this is a huge 4 Patch quilt top that was donated inside a box of vintage fabrics to our Costume Shop. The woman who made it had apparently died and her children brought us the box of fabrics. It's all hand pieced with teeny 1/8" seams and the 4 Patch blocks seem to be made out of old clothing. The clothing blocks appear to be 1940's prints, while the large blocks are a blue & white gingham print which looks to be early 1950's.
16. Jar Quilt with fabrics from alwaysinmyroom!
