Follow-up -- Quilty things in 2011 [Dec. 18th, 2010|09:30 am]

I’ve listed the major projects I’d like to work on in this coming year on the UFO challenge. But there are a couple of things I’d like to get to which are only vague thoughts at this point. While we’re talking about projects for next year, I’d also like to flesh out ideas for:

A set of small quilt panels to go behind the glass panels in the cabinet doors in the back of the fifth wheel. The glass fronts currently display the bedding and general stuff stored there and I’d rather see something prettier. I’m not inspired on this yet, though. There are four doors to cover, and I keep thinking I should do a set of things, but nothing leaps to mind except the seasons. Eh; that’s pretty vague and not very exciting to me.

A quilted panel to replace the existing padded headboard in the bedroom. Eventually we’d like to change up the bedroom fittings (curtains, valances and headboard) completely, and we’d like to arrange it so that the headboard piece could be swapped out as desired. The current décor is bland to the point of invisibility as it is in almost all RVs, so as not to be offensive to any buyer.

A small needle case. I’d like to have something better than the small fabric scrap I keep in my sewing kit for needles. Most book-style needle cases are too large for my kit. The round needle cases result in jumbles. I bought a kit at a quilt show but I want to jazz it up a bit, maybe do an appliqué fragment for the cover.

Cabinet panel idea ...

You might look at designs for stained glass designs--stained glass is often put into those cabinet panels so there will be a lot of designs with those proportions. I'm not suggesting that you use the stained glass designs for patterns--though, of course, you could--but I'm thinking they might spark a design idea of your own.

Re: Cabinet panel idea ...

That's a good idea. I was also considering posterized versions of some of our photos, like the WPA National Parks posters. That one's a lot more work, though.
