    Paula Nadelstern's kaleidoscope quilts. It would be overwhelming just to make it through fabric selection, let alone piecing.

    I tried and tried all one summer, off and on, to make a double wedding ring using many fabrics, always in the same order. Finally I had three perfect rings and made a table runner (instead of the original goal of a queen sized bed quilt). I am also in writing groups, so wrote a piece about all this and called it "I Know When I'm Licked". The group loved my writing piece and I kept the table runner for myself instead of giving it away. But I said to myself, never again.

    same here. I want to do one, but I'm intimidated by it greatly.

    Add me to the list of those who just cannot grasp the paper piecing concept!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    There are so many that I admire but am reluctant to try.

    I am a pretty simple pattern quilter--just about ANYTHING intimidates me except squares and rectangles--for example: triangles, circles, Y seams, scalloped borders, etc. are all scary to me!
