    Any quilt pattern with lots and lots of tiny pieces intimidates me. I think I'd lose interest before I could ever finish.

    I'd like to applique, but my hands don't like doing all that turning under. I've given some thought to raw edge applique, but so far haven't been moved to do it.

    Too many to mention. Bergello and Dear Jane (don't actually like the former and don't [yet] have the skills for the latter).

    I have been quilting since the mid 70's and did it all by hand until about 10 years ago.I think if I was doing it by hand I could make any pattern, it's so much more accurate. I love to Paper Piece and machine piece, its so much faster, but when it comes to applique I prefer to do it by hand. I think the only thing I have not tried is a Mariners Compass, but if I ever did, I would use Jenny Beyers methods,hers are beautiful, and are all done by hand.

    Sounds silly, but a quilt pattern set on point. All that bias..........don't know, maybe some day.

    Ignorance is bliss. I didn't know Storm at Sea was supposed to be difficult. It was the first quilt I ever made. Wasn't perfect but made a nice graduation gift for our grandson.

    I am scared of the Jinny Beyer "Da Vinci" quilt we are making for his younger brother's graduation next year. We've started cutting the fabric and organizing the pieces but I still am having trouble grasping how all this comes together. We're just taking one step at a time and hoping for the best! He chose the quilt. But his mother (my daughter) suggested a Jinny Beyer. Yup she does quilt. The picture is beautiful we'll see if my piecing does it justice.

    If you have good instruction the Bargello, you should not shy away from it. I have never found any pattern that I wouldn't try, if I liked it. There are some that I don't like enough to try.

    My dream would be to do a hand appliqued Baltimore Album. Not sure I have that much patience however.

    So far mariners compass, paper piecing and most of what bothers you doesn't bother me except those one that have billions of itty bitty pieces like dear jane and baltimore album. Luckily these particular pattern don't wow me and I have plenty other ones to do. Maybe in the future if they decide to wow me I might do a block of one of them just to say I did them but until then I am satisfied with what I have either as patterns, printouts or saved to the computer (freebies) and my own creations.
