Good decision, Sandy. One little bite at a time is good. As for Elly's blocks, why don't you just take on one block to start with? Do it on a plain white background (don't use lacquer prints, they're too hard to stitch thru) or a very pale colour (Fusions are wonderful). Then after you finish one, move onto another all the while working on your latest UFO . That's how I do it. One bite at a time.

Sandy, it sounds like you have too many irons in the fire! List your UFOs, and start finishing them one by one. Don't finish anything that isn't important to you anymore. You only have one lifetime to live and you might as well live each day as if it were your last...at least as far as quilting goes. Last November I sandwiched 8 quilts. I've finished those 8 and have two more on the go. It's absolutely amazing how light the load seems now. Now, I'll also blushingly tell you that I still have about 20 quilts to finish. But at least I have 8 done and that's 8 more than I had done last year at this time. The two that aren't finished yet are either large or fancy, both of which takes a little more time. So take heart, get a grip on what's bothering you and start enjoying your quilting rather than having it be a burden. You can, after all, only take one stitch at a time...no matter what's waiting in the wings .

So Sandy, I would like to recommend you purchase Baltimore Elegance. It has a lot of information, techniques, history, and all sorts of wonderful instruction in it that would be an excellent starting off tutorial for you. Of course, you can ask me any question you want once you get going. This quilt, also, is very small...and in my considered opinion, the larger the block size, the easier it is for beginners. You can use the patterns in the book, but just enlarge them to a 12.5" design space. That is, unless you want a miniature quilt. The "Family Album" quilt is the one I posted on my website and is currently being quilted for me. It has 16 blocks and measures 45" sq. If you start with the easy blocks, you'll soon get the feeling for working in miniature and it won't be such a huge committment of time and money in the long run.
