I had 240 comments from the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway, and had a great time reading every one of them. People had some wonderful things on their bucket lists, and I was really interested to see the trends. This post is Part 1 of a series of things that I am pulling together to maybe help people out.
The first thing I noted was how many people had nice and complex patterns in mind for their bucket list, but felt they weren’t, perhaps, game for something like that. In particular, the cathedral window quilt came up over and over again, as did the “Single Girl” quilt, and even the “swoon” quilt. “Single Girl” and “swoon” will be a post, later, but for right now, here are a series of links if you’re thinking of getting started on a cathedral window quilt:
A tip for getting your cathedral window quilt together: if you’re thinking of doing a solid color other than bright white, you should think about getting ALL your fabric at once. I hate to say it, but I have had avery difficult time color matching different bolts of Kona (Think of it as matching dye lots for yarn. I bought three bolts of Charcoal to try and get the exact color I needed on a quilt I had started previously, and all three were a different shade of grey. Just FYI.)
