The group is now 15 weeks in, and sure enough, I dropped out after 3. At the time, I wasn't sure exactly why I stopped. Maybe because the group got too big? Or was it the fact that I started to wish I had taken a different course with my blocks, using more prints like Kerry and Monica?
Well, the other day I figured it out. The reality is that I don't care for sampler quilts. I thought I liked them, but they're not for me. However, I still have a huge desire to learn how to make traditional blocks, plus I spent a lot of time on the ones I've already done. So I'm going to keep going in my own way, just using the individual blocks for things other than one big quilt.
