I like to do a block at at time on larger projects that have a lot of detail. If I am doing applique blocks that is the easiest way for me. I am big on chain piecing blocks together too. Depending on your tulips and how they are formed is how I would decide. I tend to have a bit of ADD too So I will do bit by bit.

Depends on the project - but if it's not just dead simple, I will cut and sew a block to make sure it goes together well - then if all is good will cut everything, but then like to sew my blocks in groups. I'm working on one right now that is a big, somewhat fussy block, and I prepare them about 3 at a time. I'm a one project at a time person, however I help a good friend who visits often with a disability which requires my help quite a bit, so between us, we may have several projects going on.

Thats how I prefer to do it too. Of course if you make an error on the vey first one, you've carried that error over onto *all* of them. So I tend to make one first as a test block and then assembly-line the rest.
