I decided when I joined block swaps, that I'd be doing blocks I wouldn't normally attempt - one of my current blocks (for the quilting bee, so I don't want to spoil the surprise and post the colors or the actual block) is a Rob Peter to Pay Paul (http://www.quilterscache.com/R/RobPe...PaulBlock.html ), and I have been so scared to actually start it! I made myself sit down and just do it... and it's great! I did one whole curve, and it's perfect, and I'm so excited!
Okay, so I know this is silliness, but doesn't it feel just GREAT to conquer a fear?!
