Curved Seams and Applique
|Jeweled Wedding Ring|
I have had a copy of a book by Kay Connors and Karen Earlywine called Link to the '30's: Making the Quilts We Didn't Inherit for several years now. The book resides on my bedside table and every other week or so I torment myself by looking at it and imaging the 638 appliqued circles need to bedazzle this beauty. I will make this pattern! I just have to work up the crazy to get it done.
Graphic Black and White
|Aakash Nihalani on Tripoli Gallery|
I found this artist in an advertisement from West Elm. He was doing some great geometric tape art for some pop up stores for West Elm. Further research lead to this image and an immediate idea for a quilt. I've been playing with the idea a little and have a fun start, but I want to manipulate pattern further and create my own striped fabric. I would love to have stripes that change from wide to narrow to create a starker illusion of depth. You can see more about my initial trials with this here.
Orange Groves Quilt
I would love to make a quilt that represents the blog and the orange groves that surround my neighborhood and the school where I teach. I will post a picture of my inspiration once I have permission from the blogger to reuse her image.
Multi Block Quilt
|I love this quilt by Jen Kingwell.|
I've read about a ton of people working on this quilt called Green Tea and Sweet Beans which has such a great variety of blocks and quilting techniques. I would love to make one of these types of quilts, either from a pattern, or of my own design. Perhaps I will even include my Under-Ruse block.
I cannot wait to check some of these ideas off my list, but I know that for every idea checked off there will be 7 more. What is on your Quilty Bucket List?
