Some Day Quilts

I have a list of quilts that I want to make. This is different than the pile of kits I have -- obviously I want to make those, not only did I buy the pattern, but I have the fabric. I'm talking about my "some day" quilts -- those quilts when the time is right that I plan to make.

At one point I had a log cabin in the works, but when the power went out the day I was working on it, I got distracted and didn't get back to it. I'm afraid it got wet in a flood and tossed. Maybe I can retrieve the one my mom started when my brother got bunk beds. His son is the same age as he was when Mom started the quilts (and my nephew has the same set of bunk beds).

Earlier this year I tried to make an Irish Chain. That is to say I had fabric that I wanted to use, and I thought it would work in an Irish Chain quilt. I made a sample block, but it simply wasn't speaking to me. So that fabric ended up in a different quilt and I still haven't made an Irish Chain quilt.

Trip Around the World - back in high school, and before I understood copyright, I photocopied the pattern for Trip Around the World from one of my magazines. Who knows what happened to the magazine, or instructions, but I still have the picture (in black and white) and templates I drew on graph paper. I've even have a drawing of what colors are supposed to go where.

My top five "some day" rounds out with the Double Wedding Ring and Lone Star. With the exception of the Double Wedding Ring and some would argue the Lone Star, these are simple to piece quilts. Ironically, it's the Double Wedding Ring and Lone Star that I have in progress.

I'm not sure why I haven't gotten these quilts made, but "some day" will come and I'll get them done.

What quilts are on your "some day" list?

  1. The list of quilts that I want to make grows everyday. If only I didn't always have to clean a house, or make dinner, or . . .
