Of Course, we can have a week off - the last thing I want is to pressure you into doing more blocks than you feel comfortable with - let's just do this together and at your own speed !!

And if you are using a constant background or theme of fabric, cutting more than one at a time might be a time saver.

It would be different if we had a lot of applique or paper pieced blocks. When I did Affairs of the Heart, one 6" applique block took me about 10 hours of hand stitching, and when doing the 50 PP stars, each star was made of 8 pp sections sewn together, and that was also a lot more work.

No pressure - please !! As others have said - I can post some weeks and then have a week off - does that sound better for you ?

Yes, I did my Sylvia on the board and shared progress on the Sylvia thread. I remember your Sylvia getting a ribbon at a show. I ordered my HJ book yesterday. Iíll have it if I decide to go for it.

I loved making my Sylvia sampler journey with others. For me, it was very inspirational and motivational. If I remember correctly, I started and finished two other quilts while making Sylvia. Some blocks are quick and some take longer like any sampler. I remember cutting blocks the night before and sitting and sewing them the next day. Went quickly.. I made 140 blocks in 4 months but this one Iíll likely take longer.
