Ah, the Quilting Bucket List. Such a good idea for getting focused (Thanks P.!).
Then the pressure set in. This is a Bucket List; not a "someday, wishing and a hoping" list. I can't just add my 400 or so "someday" quilts to my Bucket List. I mean let's be real here. If I'm lucky, I complete one quilt a year. Even if I get faster by improving my free motion quilting skills, I'm probably looking at only two quilts a year at best. And seriously, I'm not holding my breath on that.
So given those parameters, what is a reasonable number of projects to put on the Bucket List? I decided that number would be ten (a nice round number)--with the option of adding more if a Bucket List project becomes a WIP. And this is where the pressure came. I have to prioritize from 400 "someday" projects to 10 bucket list projects. Whew! It's not that easy.
Nevertheless, I have decided on another Bucket List project: A Stack n Whack quilt. I love the look, and sheesh, I've owned the book for 10-15 years. It might be good to get some use out of it. Right? Heck, I even have fabric for the project, also about 10-15 years old. Methinks this one is no brainer.
I didn't have to look far for inspiration. Cynthia at Home Matters 1st, recently posted a picture of her lovely Stack n Whack quilt. Isn't it gorgeous?
