    The quilt I want to make.....

    The one quilt that I want to make is the Mariner's Compass. I fell in love with that quilt the first time I saw one. I see one being made in the near future. I told DH, the other night, that I was ready to challenge myself and this is the quilt I will make.

    What is the one quilt that you yet want to make?

    If I ever made a Mariner's Compass it would have to be paper pieced. The one quilt I would love to make is a Winding Ways but it has so many curved seams I'm reluctant to tackle it.

        Ditto Storm at sea. I've been looking at several patterns. Some paper piece and others use templates. Think I might be a template person, I get too messed up and backwards with paper piecing.

          I'm currently working on a Mariner's Compass. If I live through this I think I might try a drunkard's path using an old template that my mother used in the mid 1960's.

            There's so many to choose from. On my list are the Mariners Compass, the Lemoyne Star, and a Bargello.

                I have been seriously looking into starting the mariner's compass and a hawaiian quilt. I haven't decided which one I will tackle first.

                  The mariners compass is beautiful, I better leave this thread before my list of 15 turns into 16, lol.

                    A Dresden and if I get really get motivated a drunkards path. I'm working on appliques for now so I'm not in a hurry to put to much on my plate.

                      I want to do a Baltimore Album. I guess I had better get started. I'm 76 and it will take me 20 years to finish it!

                        I keep a list in my phone of the patterns I want to make - so far they are all ones that I can tackle with my current skill set. I need to start a list of those I want to tackle in the future. I really love all of the ones mentioned above, but would really like to do a double wedding ring someday.

                            I'm another Storm at Sea girl. I hope to do mine without paper piecing. But, maybe that's a pipe dream.

                              Anyone have a link to the Storm at Sea pattern, I'm not sure I've seen it. One day a Mariners Compass for me
