It has taken me a long time to give myself permission to hibernate a project that I am not enjoying working on. This is meant to be a hobby and if it isn't fun then I am doing something wrong! I started Sue Garman's 'Friends of Baltimore' at the end of last year, but I did not really enjoy the amount of small pieces in the first block! I had not appliqued anything in a while and doubted my ability to get the result I wanted. I soon stopped work on this quilt and started Birds of a Feather and Vintage Valentine, both of which I am really enjoying working on. I will come back to FOB once I have finished these two.
