I have enjoyed seeing other people's quilty bucket lists, so I thought I would join the fun.
Very soon, Julia and I will start working on a New York Beauty quilt. We have wanted to make one since we met Karen Stone in 2005 and bought this book. I love these blocks. I grew up in New York State and I have a thing for the Chrysler Building.
When our LQS started selling NYB BOMs a few months ago, I knew we had to have them. I was hoping we would start piecing at the retreat last weekend, but we were not that ambitious. It might be our summer project.
I have been intrigued by One-Block Wonder quilts since this book was released. Someday, the right print will scream "buy me!" and I will get started.
I made a Giant Dahlia in 1990-91as a wedding gift shortly after I started quilting. The center looked like a volcano! As a beginner, I was excited and fearless and stitching way above my skill level. I'm sure lots of you did, too. Anyway, it might be time to revisit this classic pattern with modern fabrics.
What quilt patterns are on your bucket list?
