List of My Next Quilting Projects

29 Jun

Okay, so as I sit here at home watching more Mad Men, I’m struck with inspiration! Luckily I had my legal pad and a pen nearby to write down these things. I have come up with my next 5 projects. Now, these are not set in stone, and they may change based on any whim, or any commission project that may come up. So, as I’m being spirited away by the amazing serial Mad Men, which is about an advertising agency set in the 1960’s, I had an idea. I need to make quilts that speak to me more, not just ones that look pretty. It was the theme of the episode I was watching. So, my next few projects are close to home as they are for people, mostly, that I care a great deal about.

The List:

1) A quilt for my nephew Damien, who was born a few months ago is in dire need of an Eric The Quilter quilt! I was thinking his would be Red and Green, with hints of Purple, and Yellow to round out the color scheme.

2) A quilt for a dear friend of mine who used to baby sit me growing up. She was a neighbor for 8 years, and recently we reconnected, so I’m really excited, and I already started work on her quilt! Follow the jump for a picture of the progress so far! It’s aquatic themed, so lots of blues, purples, greens, and browns.

3) A quilt for TJ, my best friend. He and I have been friends and we are pushing up on our two decade anniversary! His Quilt is a Legend of Zelda themed Triforce Quilt! His 24th birthday is coming up in August and I really want to give it to him for his birthday.

4) A baby quilt for my roommate’s daughter. Not sure about the details on this, but for sure pink and purple. Maybe I’ll throw in some electric blue and lime green to really make the colors pop!

5) A quilt for my living room. I’ll have to stare at the thing all day every day, so I do consider it very close to me! It’s matching my living room motif! The colors are Burgundy, Blue, Forest Green, and Gold. I’m very excited for it!

This is the start of my quilt for my old neighbor. It eventually will look like a pond. I’m thinking of doing some applique lily pads and lotus flowers on it.
