I am in total “maker” mode. I plan to make a lot of quilts this year. And I plan to make them one at a time, meaning, I’ll complete one before I start another, with the exception of my Scrappy Trips. I started Scrappy Trips in January but I have to put it aside to make a few more things.
I’m currently working on a barter project. I’m making a pair of quilted pillow shams and a set of pillowcases in exchange for an everyday felt flower wreath. My friend Lauren, aka Feltastic Creations (IG @feltasticcreations) makes amazing flowers out of felt and creates these stunning wreaths with them. Here are the two holiday wreaths I purchased from her last year.
Next up is a baby girl quilt for my niece who is due March 20th. My goal is for baby girl to have her quilt by her birthday. These are the fabrics I’ve chosen as of right now.
I’ve never made a Tumbler Quilt so I plan to use my 6″ AccuQuilt tumbler die from this set of Bullseye dies.
Right after that I’m going to quilt and finish this challenge quilt.
Me and a couple of friends who went to Houston Quilt Festival Houston are doing a fat quarter challenge for Quilts Beyond Borders sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop. We added some of our own rules to the challenge, like we can only use 3 other fabrics along w/the supplied fat quarter and it has to be completed by April 25, 2020.
Then I’m back to working on my Scrappy Trips. Which I plan to make king size and eventually quilt on my domestic. Pray for me.
I’m hoping to finish it by end of May so that I can get on to the next quilt in my lineup which is a baby boy quilt for another niece who is due on July 10. Again I’d like for baby boy to have his quilt by his birthday. Here are the fabrics I pulled for his quilt. At this moment I’m thinking of a Tumbler Quilt for him too.
After baby boy’s quilt, I’d like to finally quilt Meadowland that I pieced last summer.
A new, Midwest, in real life friend and sister in Christ, Madonna (@sunnybunnyquilts on IG) has inspired me to start quilting my own quilts again which aligns well w/my plan to pay off some debt by year’s end. Thank you Madonna! This is her very, very, extra very, lovely make that really just got the inspiration ignited! Look at that tantalizing texture!
And last but not least in my quilty project lineup, is a FREE patriotic number called A Tribute To Yoda. There are 15 layout variations at the end of this pattern, but my fave is this one.
I purchased these reds, whites, and blues last year to make this quilt.
That’s my lineup so far. What do you think? Pretty ambitious huh? Say another prayer for me and stay tuned for my progress.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’!

Big goals! I have pondered on a scrappy trip using 2″ solids. Maybe this year. Right now, though, I have four quilts in progress and need to finish something first.
So many pretty quilts — and yes, I’ll be praying for ya on that king-sized goal. I’m impressed with your determination to quilt on your domestic. I’m still trying to get disciplined to practice fmq on my domestic. I’ll be watching and encouraging from over in this (very chilly) neck of the woods!
What a great line up!!! and I love it – Maker mode!! you got this – and you have some very fun things to make!
Wow! You have a fun time ahead of you! Love all of your projects, and can hardly wait to see what you are making for Lauren. Her wreaths are gorgeous!
Love your blog and your sharing of all your quilty plans! Thank you for featuring my scrappy trip quilt and the awesome words of praise and encouragement towards me. 💜💗💜 I treasure your friendship. May God bless all your adventures!
Like so many quilters you have so many wonderful “To Do’s” listed! Those wreaths are gorgeous, good swap! My own “Scrappy Trips” is a “must quilt” for me this year. It’s been layered for two years already, just have to nail down how I want to do it.
