Oh no!   Not, not good.....my hand hurts just seeing that...esp the wrist that was splinted.

Your list is magnificent.

Anyone who cannot find a project from that list is just being cantankerous.  wink 

(I'm a former fifth grade teacher so I know cantankerous when I see it.)

Okay, I ordered the "Fire" version of the Dream Big panel and it arrived at my home this afternoon.  I ironed it nice and flat and pinned it to my design wall.  (This after an annoying morning working on my new "Single Slice Mokume" polymer clay class but I am not allowed to share anything about that until the class is completed in November.)

Anyhow, I sat back in my sewing machine chair and admired those gorgeous shades of orange, the clever shading of the petals and I mused to myself ... "How in the heck do people stitch this thing?".  Checked out Pinterest and I find that since this panel was printed in 2017 many quilters have gone berserk with this panel. I was slack-jawed at the awesome examples of quilting I saw that had been done with this panel. What show-offs there are lurking out there in the world of machine quilters!!

I turned my head to look at my pretty panel pinned on my wall and I thought "You poor thing, you are doomed to be the wall flower at the party".  Plus I saw this diagram that explained there were 62 segments to be quilted. I just grinned and shook my head "No, thanks."
