Deborah - Stalled

Another week has flown by and I do not have anything to share. I have asked that my reveal time be changed to Monday which gives me another day to - hopefully - make some progress. I'm still drawing a blank on the CQ blocks for the UFO.

I give myself one more week. If I can't come up with something by then, maybe I should turn my attention to something else for awhile. :-(

What kind of problem are you having with the CQ blocks?

Maybe we can brainstorm some ideas to get you going.

I have weeks like that too Deborah, when I just can't get my ideas clear enough for stitching something.
Debra's idea of brainstorming is good. If we can help - fire away.

If you weren't ready to make the CQ blocks, you could baste your central panel to the backing and start the handquilting. Once you have your CQ blocks done, you can sew them around that center section. Just leave your backing fabric wide enough to accomodate your added blocks. Maybe while handquilting you could get a sense of what colors to use.

Sometimes our brains just aren't ready to think about a particular project. Maybe there's an idea that hasn't quite flowered yet, and it needs more time to be recognized. =)

Yea, that's my story too! :-) (but your advice is true!)

I put some fabric next to the center block on my blog: wednesdayquilter.blogspot.com if you'd like to take a look. It's a very different color scheme and I'm color-challenged anyway. I love the colors but I think because of the plain muslin background of the applique blocks, I have to be careful with the CQ blocks so that they don't overwhelm them. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think.

colors - if you want to take a look, I put some photos up on my blog.

I quit. My frustration level with this project is beyond the pale. I'm putting it away and moving on until I find something that works. It's just not worth it. This is supposed to be fun and creative, and I'm just aggravated right now.

I think I'll just watch how you develop your wallhanging to suit your own style.
