2014 Wish List

Quilts I want to make and need to finish....

Red and white school house quilt - this pattern has been on my wish list for far too long.  So perhaps I will make it in the reverse like this or the traditional red on white?  Either way it will probably be a miniature just to speed things up!

Applique; my skills are rusty, so I need to start on something easy, perhaps this wall hanging from the autumn issue of Quilt Mania 2013 (by Norma Whaley)
before I start work on the applique in my UFO, the Farmhouse Kitchen quilt by Ann Horton

 Blue star quilt (this is the pattern, but I plan to use all blue 5" squares,instead of the multiple colours).  
 this image is from http://www.pinterest.com/nancysfabrics/ I think, I get kind of lost on pinterest, as to who the original owner of the image was!
Log Cabin quilt doesn't seem to ever fade from my wish list so perhaps I can squeeze that in somewhere?
Log Cabin, Maker unknown, Made in United States, Circa 1880-1910, 72 x 72 in, IQSC 2003.003.0313
but honestly I don't know if I could decide to make it in reproductions, brights or scraps?! (image from quiltstudy.org) Perhaps it needs to be my....
 Leaders and enders project?  Or maybe it needs to be my WIP  four patch? Just know I need to do something, as I feel quite at a loss not having a leaders and enders on the go!
More charity quilts, some for kids and some for adults - using this pattern perhaps? (image from Cluck cluck sew) as I don't feel "done" with the chevron pattern yet!

zig zag quilt
 Delectable mountains quilt for my brother - another Bonnie Hunter pattern, picture borrowed from her blog/website Quiltsville.

 Dresden plate quilt, using the red jelly roll I brought, as I enjoyed making the last one so much ;)

There is also  a pre cut quilt, for a quilt I saw at the show using a layer cake and charm squares, that I want to make (but need to wait on the class or pattern being released) PLUS I am keen to make a few more miniature quilts using reproduction fabrics AND its definitely time to refocus on UFO's, including;
the All Creatures Great and Small wall hanging, before the kids get too old for it.
continue working on the Seven Sisters quilt (it is a slow burn project)
and the basket quilt featured earlier.
And last but not least I will be making my first Block of the Month run by Stitchery dickory dock along with my friend Karen, who kindly signed me up as a gift!  
Wish me luck, I am going to need it!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.


  1. Wow, lots to look forward too, all the best, and I am sure you will succeed. Not quite game to list my stuff that I want to achieve.

  2. Great list with lots of variety so you can pick what you feel like doing. Love that log cabin and the colours in the picture. To me it just screams winter quilt. I too am looking forward to 2014 in terms of sewing and hoping I mange to eek out more time for creating than I did last year.

  3. You're going to be busy providing us with lots of eye candy during the year.

  4. Looks like a lovely variety of projects!

  5. Looks like some lovely quilting projects are coming your way. Love the school house quilt..and Im doing a zig zag quilt this year too!
