Quilt bucket list

What Quilt Pattern is on your Bucket List?

There are so many we want to make! But what is a bucket list worthy, top of the mountain climb, jump out of an airplane, quilt pattern you aspire to make one day?

I’ll tell you mine soon enough – but you’ll have to wait for it! Oh the suspense! Just like jumping out of a plane right? Oh ok, I know my bucket list item isn’t THAT interesting to you and that’s ok! But take a look at the list I compiled down below to see what others are wanting to do. I’ll bet you find one or two you add to some sort of quilt list you have going!

I asked this question over in our Facebook Group: Free Quilting Patterns – Spam Free Zone and got a good deal of responses. I’ll try and provide as many links as well if I can find them. Many of these I didn’t know what they were and some I did. So what quilting pattern is on your bucket list and is it already listed here?

Hint: There are even a few that are FREE PATTERNS! That’s always exciting!

  1. I would love to do a Bargello twist quilt. I am just not finding a pattern that I really love and I am not skilled enough or experienced enough to feel comfortable making my own pattern.
