My 2019-2020 Project List

Greetings from South Texas where we are now enjoying some dry cooler air and I love it.  My walk was so enjoyable compared to yesterday when the Humidity was so high!  I am slowly catching up on the ‘mundane’ things like updating my Blog and doing this post!  Maybe you will see something that sparks an interest for your quilt making projects.

I have been working on reviewing a stack of quilt patterns to work on in the next 2 years (yes I decided that if I chose them now and say 2 years I am ahead of the game) so that I do not feel I have to finish them all (which would be impossible).  Here is what I started with and ended with:

The “Stack”

Organized and Ready to Go

Now for the 2019-2020 “List”.  I have no time frame for finishing the list just hoping to finish all by the end of 2020.  As I studied each pattern I labeled it from an Easy to Complex quilt.  This allows me to easily pick out what I want to work on at the time – NO THINKING  or INTENSE WORK!

1. Enduring Love by Carol Hopkins book Vintage Legacies. Easy. About a week (I want to remake the borders on this quilt)

2. Make 2 baby quilts – Use Jewel Box Quilt book by Eleanor Burns Easy 2 Weeks.

3. Stonefields – Complete Sections 6 through 10 Rest of the year Easy

4. Feather Star Quilt – Marsha McCloskey – Challenge Quilt: Blue and White Star of Chamble. Fabric is in the drawer by the design board. Plan on a month!

5. Bear Mountain Cabin – Intermediate – Log Cabins, Flying Geese and Bear Paw blocks.

6. Love Warm by Pam Buda – Easy Lots of 2″ squares Scrappy Quilt –

7. Infinity by Eileen Wright in Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts – Red and a Teal One! Maybe Nebula from the same book Intermediate – New Technique

8. Terracina Fabrics – a Panel Play quilt! Will take some up front time for placement and fillers. Use Panel Play by Barbara Becker for ideas on the setting – A fun project Easy

9. Ancient Stars – Sue Garman Requires Lots of Stars and HSTs  – Need to decide if I am going to do it all at once, or space it out like a BOM. This quilt requires at least a month or more to make. Intermediate

10. Double Wedding Ring by Sharlene Jorgensen – Templates provided. Intermediate/Advance – At least a month.

11. Lynn Wilder Patterns – Lynns patterns are great and instructions excellent! I will pick one and maybe the wall hanging! Time consuming due to colorway selections.

    • Well, I used to be able to be this organized before April 2014. This is me getting my life back from Hell! (LOL).
      I wanted to have review the patterns before I decided if I wanted to make them or not. Reading the pattern will tell me if there could be a disaster waiting to happen or smooth sailing! It all hinges on how the Designer writes the pattern!

      I am hoping to make one at a time and not have the mess I had held over from 2015 to 2018!
      Have a great day and thx for commenting.

  2. Hi Nanette! WOW. That is quite a list, but I love how you went through your stack and eliminated some choices. I can’t wait to see you advance on some of these as it sure sounds like you’ve got it going on! You go, girl. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • It really makes it easier to read through the directions and if it sounds like a winner, then label it on the level of work involved (some may take longer – some shorter timeframes) but it does eliminate a lot of upfront work and I know how to schedule time. I am trying to get back to where I was a few years back. Thx for commenting. Have a great day

    • This way I can either tax my brain, or let it rest. Either way they are projects that I have always wanted to make and kept making Show Quilts. We will see if this works for me! Hugs

    • You will get there Jaydee. It was a long 4 years that prevented me from doing this. It seems this year is going to go smoother and I am already organized and ready for whatever (as far as making quilts go). Thx for commenting – Hang in there and Hugs!

  5. So far for the month I am on schedule. I have finished one baby quilt and doing the 2nd starting today (should go faster) and then a RSC block and redo the Enduring Legacy! Reaching goals this year! Hugs
