    I am so sick of the blocks I am working on , I love the fabric it's my first quilt with batiks but every block is the same and I need 72 ( not all that many). My husband says do something else for a while, but I am a bit rigid in completing big projects. I tell myself when I run out of the right color of bobbin thread I will switch projects, but I just find another color that works okay. Is this a mental health issue or what! I don't know that I can even quilt something as big as this is going to turn out to be and I don't want to pay to have some one else do it. Oh wo is me, thanks for listening to my whining, I have a nasty cold and a painful knee too and my sewing room is downstairs, that ought to cover all of my complaints, thanks for listening(reading?) This is a great place to vent. We all know some one who really has something to complain about, this is pretty minor, but my issues for the day.

    Sounds like you need to take a break today, rest relax and get to feeling better.

    Sometimes I work on components of blocks in bulk. Like one particular seam at a time. I am still doing just one thing - but I get it done quicker and then I get to do another seam. Recently I made 60 - 4" pin wheels. I first did all the half squares then I sewed half of them together then I completed it. Works for me - may it will work for you.

    You need to take a break. Do something else for a while and then go back to it.

    i think YOU said it--RIGID--how lucky you are to only have these issues for today!
    just think of all the options you have--just don't think too long--

    Schedule yourself to do a certain # of blocks per day and figure out when the end date would be. This way you can enjoy doing some each day and eventually finish...

    Good idea. If you set a goal and meet it you can go onto something else for a bit.

    How about cutting out your next project and take a break from this one? You're not really starting it that way, just getting ready.
