I slip farther and farther down the quilting rabbit hole and I the more I do the more I want to quilt. It's very hard to believe it's only been a year now since I finished my very first quilt. It takes up my every free moment now and I wonder why I haven't always been quilting since it brings me so much pleasure. I've decided to make a list of some of my goals for quilting. Each of these quilts on my list has a new technique or skill to work on which I haven't yet mastered. And I think by the time I finish all of these I will be quite an experienced quilter!
The very last quilt on this list, the Iowa Star, is actually a little overlap in technique from the English paper pieced hexagons but I've included it anyway because of its sentimental value. My great-grandmother, Valarian, made one for my mother as a wedding present and it is the very first quilt I remember seeing and using. It was always on my mom's bed and I have many memories of it being a part of my childhood.
