    It's gonna be great. I love the challenge of matching points. I think it makes me a better quilter.

    Your block is beautiful - I wouldn't worry about how other people sew - as long as you can keep your projects organized - do what you want

    What a gorgeous block! Just think about how much you will enjoy it when it's done! I get so obsessed with finishing things, I don't think rotating projects would work for me!

    Hi pippa, I do not have a very low boredom threshold, I just keep on until it is finished IF other projects do not get in the way. I love your block: the pattern and fabric colors. As-a-matter-of-fact what fabric do you use? Sandi

    Below is one of the ones I am NOT enjoying working on!

    Edited to add - 11 blocks done, 13 to go. It WILL get done eventually but I am not enjoying matching all those points.

    I get bored easily, too. Maybe an hour on this, then an hour on that.

    My main trouble is that while I'm doing project A I think of a new project B. First thing you know I've got 6 or 8 started things and nothing done.

    I have 2 full size quilt tops just waiting to be finished! Do you think I would get busy and do that, heck no! Out of nowhere, I have am now working on a King size quilt on my design wall. I don't have time to do this either. I have 6 gals coming over to work on making a quilt top completely on Saturday! I got to get my sr cleaned up! I am a mood quilter for sure!

    Oh, your block looks great! If you don't get everything to match perfectly, don't worry about it, unless, of course, you are planning to put it in a show. The minor misseams don't really matter to the person you are giving it to. They will just thank you for the lovely quilt.

    I used to start a project then work on it until finished but now that I'm retired and quilt pretty much full time after the house chores, I'm finding that I like to have more projects going. No schedule, just do what I feel like doing that day.
