I had no idea what I wanted to work on first, so I went back to an old project, one I'm keen to see closer to finished.
The ugly ones are still annoying me though, especially the reeeaally complicated ugly ones.
I'l just have to grit my teeth and make them, if I want an authentic Stickle quilt, but seeing I plan to change the border it won't be authentic anyway. I'll have to think about that one...
May I just say that I would never contemplate making this quilt without the Dear Jane software. (Lots of stuff on this site too.) It would take a lot more time to draft up these blocks from a book, and my enthusiasm would wane before I was ready to start sewing. The software is great (some of the blocks still require creative input, but at least the line drawing is there) and I know I will use it to resize some of the nice blocks to make other quilts.
Maybe I'll make the ugly ones and put them on the back, and substitute a block of my choice on the front?
And then Bonnie's mystery will start; am I going to do it this year? I'm tempted. I'm insane to think of adding to the workload. I'll probably do it anyway.
