As quilters, our to-do lists are never done! We always have something to make (or finish!), a new technique to try, or a fun event to attend with our sewing buddies. When American Patchwork & Quilting released their quilting Bucket List for 2019 in their February issue, I knew this was just what I needed to cross some of these dream items off my list!
The list is a mix of 50 fun items — some project-related, some technique based, and some designed to get you connected with other quilters! It’s a great way to shake up my normal routine and, in some cases, really get me out of my comfort zone (I’m looking at you, “Slow down and hand-quilt“).
American Patchwork & Quilting will be corresponding some of their projects and website articles throughout the year to help you cross items off your list, but you can obviously choose any projects you want! Here are a few I can’t wait to get started on:
- For one week, set aside 20 minutes a day to sew.
- Sew a quilt using only your scraps and stash.
- Take your handwork to a surprising location.
- Go on a quilt retreat.
- Splurge on a quilting tool you’ve been eyeing.
Download your Bucket List here and start crossing items off your list! I’ll blog monthly about items I’ve crossed off , and I’m happy to have you all for support — I hope you join me!
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
