  1. I love both your lists – I kept saying “me too!” as I read along. I (try to) make it a point to visit local quilt shops wherever I go. Sometimes it doesn’t happen, but any trip we take my husband knows that is on the to-do list. In June I am going on a vacation with my best friend and she emailed me to tell me there are 3 quilt shops in our destination city – Key West. She knows me so well!

      Hi Leigh Ann! That is SO cool – going to Key West (want to go there!!) with your bestie. That will be SO fun. I’ll have to follow your blog so I can read all about it. Oh the fun you’ll have. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. My quilting bucket list is to leave my children, grandchildren, and great grands lots of quilts made by me. I have several made by different relatives that are no longer with us and I cherish them. Hopefully my relatives will feel the same about mine after I’m gone. They seem to appreciate them now. 🙂 By the way, the link to your Etsy store did not work.

      Hi Peggy! That is a great legacy. I had a crocheted afghan from my grandmother but somehow it got lost in a move. None of my relatives quilted that I’m aware of. I am 100% sure that they will indeed cherish them, and feel all the love that they were made with. ~smile~ Thanks for the Etsy store heads up – I’ll check into that! Roseanne

  3. I don’t really have a thought out quilting bucket list. But I would like to do a sewing trip, maybe one of Bonnie Hunter’s, someday. It was interesting to read yours and start to think about it for myself. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi again Nancy – so sweet of you to comment. I would love to hear if you come up with any ideas . . . bucket lists are meant to be amended, right?!

    OMG there are sooo many charitable organizations out there! You need to contact Barb Vallone. She has all the connections. Each year we make about 80 quilts to send to camp Serenity, which is camp for kids that have lost a parent in the service.
    Once a month at Sew n Save there is quilts for soldiers group where we work on quilts for vets. We bring our machines and sew for a few hours. Nancy Larsen is in charge of that group.
    Any time there is a major disaster we make and send quilts, Barb always gets the call.

      Hi Ellen – good to know. I knew there had to be something local that we could get involved with. Thanks for all the contact names! I appreciate it very much. ~smile~ Roseanne

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
