Well, it's August, and right on schedule I'm starting to get interested in quilting again. I even did a little piecing last night. That means it's time for the list that I always make this time of year, my priorities for the coming quilt season. It's a long list, but then you probably understand that. There are always so many more quilt ideas than there is time or energy to make actual quilts.
Top priorities to finish this year. It would be nice to get ALL of these done.
Devil's Claw -- This is one I've talked about a lot in the last few years. The face is complete, and it's been pinned, so it just needs quilting and binding. "Just."
Jennifer Challenge -- Me and my friend Jennifer both bought a set of fabrics, and she is currently putting the hanging sleeves on the quilt she made with hers. I started cutting and piecing mine last night. I need to catch up, or Jennifer will hurt me.
Mondrian I -- My awesome (if I do say so myself) reproduction of a Mondrian painting in scrap corduroy. The face is finished, so it needs a back, some batting, and some quilting.
Symbol -- Another one I've talked about a lot here. The face background is complete. I need to select a fabric for the symbol and finish the face.
StormQuilts -- I have four of these on the First Priority list, but I won't belabor the details.
Second Priority quilts would be awfully nice to finish this year, but hey, I'm realistic. Hopefully, I'll make some solid progress on these, at least.
Mondrian II -- Already have it picked out!
A Couple of Child Blankets -- For some children of my acquaintance. If I was a good person, these would be First Priority.
Labyrinth II -- Most of the cutting is done for this sequel. I started the assembly, but ran into problems. I need to do some thinking and figure out how to get it going forward again.
Four Seasons -- I thought this was the world's oldest UFO, but I recently learned about an even older one. But it's MY oldest UFO.
StormQuilts -- I have three more of these on the Second Priority List
If I blast through the above and have time left over -- an unlikely prospect at best -- I might take on one of these. Or, I might putter with one from time to time with the idea of having it ready for serious attention next year.
The Legacy Quilt -- One I've talked about, but haven't done much with.
Labyrinth III -- I haven't even designed this one yet. I just like the idea of doing more Labyrinths.
A Project I'm not ready to tell you about.
Another Project I'm not ready to tell you about.
However many additional StormQuilts would get me to the ultimate goal of twenty.
Fourth Priority is a holding pen for ideas I hope to work on sometimein the future. For now, I'll just give you the working titles:
The Sarah Horowitz inspired light on light-light design
Requilting my own baby quilt
Oregon Map II
Yet Another Project I'm not ready to tell you about.
And Another One.
A wall hanging using my mom's Silhouette technique.
There you have it! More quilting than I could possibly accomplish! Let's see how far I get!
What are YOUR quilt goals for the coming fall and winter?
