Have you ever sewn EVERY quilt in a quilt book? I haven’t. I haven’t even done it for the quilt book that Kelli and I wrote together. Kelli sewed some…I sewed some.
Well last week after I finished up Texas Tumbleweeds I got to wondering how many quilts I had made from Bonnie Hunter’s More Adventures with Leaders and Enders book. This is what I came up with.
There are 12 quilts in the book:
Scrap Crystals: I have it cut out and it’s in my UFO pile.
Four-Patch X: FINISHED! Read about it here.
Winston Ways: FINISHED! Read about it here.
Texas Tumbleweeds: FINISHED! Read about it here.
Spoolin’ Around: FINISHED! Read about it here.
Easy Street: I finished TWO!
Narragansett Blues: FINISHED! Read about it here.
Lazy Sunday: FINISHED! Read about it here.
Cheddar Bowties: In the UFO pile. I think I have about 300 bowties made and have the border made.
Midnight Flight: The solid colored fabric is purchased
Friendship Cross: Thinking about this for a wedding present
Lucy’s Baskets: Haven’t thought about…I’d have to stitch all those basket handles down!!
SO…here’s where I am at.
Of the 12 quilts in the book I have 7 entirely finished. I have two started. I have fabric for another. I want to make one for a wedding present and then there Lucy’s Baskets. Hmm…That’s quite a few left to make. I hate to commit to making them all but boy, oh boy am I ever tempted to give it a try. It would be so cool to have made EVERY quilt in one quilt book. For now, I think I’ll just try to concentrate on getting the UFO’s finished…and maybe the one for the next wedding too. I might just be talked into making the basket quilt….But then again, I think I might have a good chunk of the quilts made that are in the String Fling book too. Maybe I should check how close I am in having all of them made….I’ll save that for another blog post.
Have you ever made EVERY quilt in a quilt book? Inquiring minds would love to know.
