Not sure what it is about the 40s, but I took a look at a couple of my ongoing projects that require quite a few blocks and here is where I stand on each of them.
Hearts and Hands blocks all stacked up after completing the last dozen or so that I was working on. I had to gather the outside edges and press them over so that they are ready to be appliqued to a background. There are 42 of them. They are not so impressive stacked up, but on the design wall, they look a little better.
That's 42 out of 117. hmmm.....not toooooo bad.
Then there is Dear Jane.
48 blocks out of 169 and that is not including the pie-shaped blocks that create the borders of this quilt.
Now this one is depressing; but that is why I put it up on the design wall. I need to keep motivated or inspired, or whatever it takes to make me get back at it.
What is it about stopping at 40+ blocks?
I need to change that.
I need to get busy.
I need a plan.
