I don't know that any one part stands out for me, although I get irritated when I have to turn off the heat to turn on the iron because it trips the circuit breakers. It's like Green Acres here.

Starting. Starting to cut. Starting to sew. Starting to quilt. Once I've started I'm on a roll, but actually starting each step of the project is absolutely taxing!

Grreeeeeeen Acres is the place to be! I love it!

I really hate squaring up blocks. I don't always do it well, and if there are very many blocks it seems to take me forever. I just want to get on to the next step.

Pressing the top and adding borders. That's when they tend to become UFOs. It's always funner to start a new project. I seem to really enjoy making blocks more than any other part of quilting.

I don't mind any of it, but this too is my issue.

Anything that comes after finishing the top. I am the flimsy queen!
