In Which I Hereby Resolve to Make a Quilt

These days everyone seems to be scripting a bucket list, a personal to-do tally of what they hope to accomplish before expiration date. You know, climb Kiliminjaro, run a marathon, plummet from a bridge via bungee cord.

Not me. No thanks. I hope never to plummet. My bucket list is safer & closer to home, and contains only one item: Make a g–ddam quilt! I blame Brigit for the inspiration.

So . . . I bought the Ollalieberry Ice Cream Quilt pattern (pictured above) in downloadable pdf form from Alicia Paulson’s blog, Posie Gets Cozy. Am I deluded in thinking the rows of squares make it look kind of easy-ish? Here’s to the ever-hopeful. And if you’re not scaling mountains or marathon training, be sure to check out Posie Gets Cozy. Alicia’s photos and projects are beautiful.

Keep posted for the next installment of what I’m sure will be a death-defying adventure in quilting . . .
