In the discussion about templates, I've gotten a couple of emails from
folks saying "I would never even consider a pattern that has curves."
At about the same time, I found this amazingly beautiful pattern that
I wanted for my summer bed quilt but the third paragraph in said this:
"Cut 159 sets of A and B and 1100 pieces of each C and D." I swear,
it said cut more than 1,000 of each of two LITTLE pieces and then sew
them together. (This is for a queen sized quilt) I love that quilt but
I will never consider a pattern that has hundreds, never mind
thousands of pieces to cut and sew.
Got me to thinking, we've each got our stopping point, the deal
breaker that keeps us from ever starting a quilt even if we love it.
So what's your deal breaker? I told you mine -- I'm scared of all the
pieces to cut and just know I would never finish cutting, never mind
putting them together.
Let's hear all the deal breakers. This should be fun. (BEG)
