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:
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.
The House on Edgewood Lane Intermediate/Advance
Country Sunshine Intermediate/Advance
Country Charmer Intermediate/Advance
Cute as a Button 31 x 31. Easy
12. Star Dance by Jilly Studio – some applique on the border. Easy

Capital “T” BOM – 1 Block a Month! This is my only BOM to work on each month!

Wow you are really getting organized. I’ll be happy if I get done what I want to for the month…lol I look forward to seeing your progress. Hugs
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.
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

Nanette, I got tired just reading your to-do list (LOL). I wish you the best of luck with all of them.
I was worn out when I finished reading the patterns! LOL – It will be interesting if I finish 1/2 of them!
That’s sounds like a lot of projects but you’re right, some of them are quick and easy. They’ll all be beautiful! Happy stitching!
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 have some great ideas. Good luck with your lists.
Thank you! I want to enjoy the making of a quilt for awhile. Then when bored I will start a difficult one.
Sounds like a perfect plan
Whoa, Nanette! I can barely think month to month, let alone 2 years!
This is going to be fun watching you work through your lists!
Well Laura, who in the heck knows where I will be in 2 years either. But it is documented in case I start forgetting who I am! LOL

That is quite a monster list you have compiled Nanette! I will be enjoying the show!
Well, at least they are put away in a box and I am not looking at the patterns every day (out of sight out of mind). I am taking this monster on one at a time! Enjoy!

I ahve used the Sharlene Jorgenson Double Wedding Ring templates a few times. I enjoyed the process and all worked well.
I made as a practice quilt and gave it away. Now it is time to make a real one for us!
Nanette that is quite a list. Hopefully I can make a working list like that someday. I am glad you can do this. Thank you for sharing.
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!
Very ambitious….. You are an awesome planner. I have a list, but it looks very similar to last years…..lol
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
