Bucket List O' Quilts Revisited

I've had a bucket list for almost as long as I've had this blog. I revisit it every year or so and update it. When I started seeing the My Quilty Bucket List posts popping up in the blogosphere and leading back to a fun linky with Stacey at The Tilted Quilt, I thought it was a good time to have another look-see.

My bucket list used to have 30 items on it. I've narrowed it down to less than 20 now. Woo hoo! I've made a few of them, like Su{Brr}nova, Hexed and Happy Canada Day, Eh!.

Happy Canada Day, Eh!

Mostly though, I just culled the ones that I thought I "should" make and kept the ones that I "really want to make".
  1. Kingston Quilt - This is a block of the month quilt from oh, a long time ago. I still love the pattern and have finished the first block. It's a very, very detailed quilt. 
  2. January Block - Kingston City Hall
  3. Hexie pixel quilt - similar in idea to this one, but with hexies! 
  4. Ruth McDowell-style forest scene 
  5. Value and colour circle 
  6. Black wholecloth quilted in colour - similar to Emma's from Sampaquita's Quilts
  7. Seasonal wallhangings (Easter, Spring, Summer, Winter, Christmas still to do) 
  8. Group of Seven-style quilt 
  9. New Zealand quilt  
  10. Haida-style quilt 
  11. Northern lights quilt 
  12. Children's portraits/fingerprints 
  13. Christmas tree quilt 
  14. Tulip quilt - a larger and more involved version of this one I made for my purple Colour My World challenge. It uses a collage technique I learned from Elaine Quehl. Love it!

  15. Feng shui
  16. European townhouse/village quilt 
  17. Tokyo Subway Map by Oh, Fransson!
  18. Family Portrait à la Marjolein Bastiaans 
  19. Let's Be Frank About the Seasons (series) 
  20. Snowball quilt
The Tilted Quilt

Okay, I guess I'd better get crackin'. :)

Link up your own quilty bucket list with Stacey at The Tilted Quilt!


  1. Yes, you have a lot of work ahead of you. But isn't it fun writing it all down and dreaming of all the fun you have in store! I really love the quilts you have completed! Thanks for linking up, it's been such a blast reading everyone's lists this month!

  2. Such a fun list! I look forward to seeing what you make from it!

  3. As an avid ex-stamp collector, your Happy Canada Day really caught my eye and the hexed quilt is so perfect!! Have fun with your list :)


  4. You've got quite the list there! I really like your Canada Day wall hanging and that City Hall is very impressive.

  5. I love the Canada Day one! Beauty! I've been trying to think of a way to do a cool Canada quilt but it looks like you beat me to it!

  6. I love the Canada Day quilt! So amazing!

    I know what you mean about quilts you feel like you should make and ones that your REALLY want to make. You have an inspiring list. I really like the idea of a hexie pixel quilt. THAT would be awesome!

  7. Your Canada quilt is absolutely beautiful, I love the background of triangles and that gorgeous edge! Future bucket list quilts from you will certainly be ones to look out for if that quilt (and the tulip!) is any indication.

    An NZ quilt being on your list stirs my curiousity.

  8. Great list, and so great to find someone else with a big list. big is better!
