Everyone gave such great answers and ideas on the last PIGS post and we got Libby moving out of her slump! Hooray! She even took our advice and treated herself to new fabric once she got a couple of things accomplished - go see what she bought!
The questions for today stem from the last questions in a way.
What part (or parts) of the process of making a quilt are your least favorite? The part (or parts) that you just dread and that make you throw your projects back into the dark recesses of your stash closet? Have you found any tricks to break the cycle of being held up on the parts that aren't your favorite?
For me, I used to dislike the bindings. I could get a quilt quilted and ready for binding, but then it would sit for a while until I had nothing else to do or until I ran out of room where the quilts were. I think that the process of making the long binding strip is what got to me. To counteract this, I have been cutting the binding out and making the strip before I even start sewing the blocks. Now, the only problem is the hand stitching of the binding to finish the quilt. lol
I have quite a few UFO's that involve applique and I keep moving those to the back of the pack/bottom of the list. Now that I have some applique experience, I think that I can make the projects, but they are still at the bottom of the list! lol
I never used to think that borders were my least favorite part of quilting, but apparently they are. Why else would it have taken me so long to get the borders on the Split Decision quilt? It took me 2 weeks to get the borders on and the strips were already cut! I guess that I need to start getting them prepped when I make the binding strip?
Anyone can participate in the answering, just make a post on your blog and leave a link to your post below. I will draw a winner at the end of the month. If you don't have a blog, leave your answer as a comment on this post and enter your name in Mr Linky as "You Name - COMMENT."
The pups say, "Come on! Help a quilter out!"
