I ask this as you all know I'm getting ready to jump into the fire with intense projects.

My most intense to date I guess is Spouts. It had the most variation and complex layout.

I think imho anyway that if you can work on something a hour everyday the big projects are tameable, its' all about time management. It surprises me what I can get done in an hour sometimes. I'm going to work Celeste from the inside out so if I get tired of it will just not do all the borders and then can have a finished piece. So now I can collect yellow fabrics for the sun. I don't have a lot of yellow in m stash.

My most difficult and ambitious (although I didn't know it at the time I started) was the Bonnie Hunter "Easy Street" with its 3000 pieces. I just have the binding to go. I am waiting for school to get out to attack that project.

That would make me batty that many pieces. I've heard about her scrap quilts way too much piecing for me.

So far, it's been the dog quilt. But I fear my quilting projects are basically kindergarten coloring book pages compared to what the rest of you are doing :)

Without a doubt, my most difficult was the Multanomah Falls wall hanging kit from Nancy's Notions. I tried to make it for my husband using one of the three appliqué techniques. It was such a mess, I shoved it in a box in the back of a closet. My husband wanted it so much, that I ordered a second kit. Haven't been brave enough to start it

This is on my docket but I have not started it yet... I have been slowly collecting the batik watercolors to make it.

I love that horse one for a friends daughter whose horse mad but haven't been game to try it.

So far it was the thangles hunter star in batiks I just ran out of steam. I did the I think 640 1/2 square triangles and was sick of it. I occassionally get it out and do a block here or there but for some reason I've just lost interest in it.

Ok Warbler. You win. What impressive quilts!! I retire in a few years and have several complex projects to attempt. I want to do Pam Bono's Baltimore quilt; and was recently given a book with blocks similar to yours...I doubt that I could do them as we'll as you. Great job.
