I hope players who are not at level 31 use sets like Quilting as motivation to reach a point where they are able to complete any of the weekly sets and not be discouraged to the point of not playing Pocket Frogs!

Can't wait until you hit 100%, sometime next week I expect.

OK, OK. Message received. Proof positive to me that I am & have always been the true outlier in this group. Then again, I've forever felt like a stranger in a strange land, surrounded by people who dreamed of reaching the promised land of 100% of the 'dex. I use no strategy, have no goal, &, if I were at level 16, say, I'd totally
give up on doing Weekly Sets ever again. Maybe even on the game. Simply not worth it. Somehow, I think I'm defining a non-gamer. Maybe I should pick up my Stephen King book which is gathering dust...

I haven't accepted your friend request yet
because you don't know how weird I am so here's your chance to change your mind. I just reached level 34 after an incredibly long slog through 33. I don't reciprocate (it was too time-consuming & just encouraged more gifts, clogging my MB) but I DO send out a frog to two people/day to people on my friend list to just "gift." That way, it's just a gift, nothing more, nothing expected.
Given the number of friends (23) I have, each friend gets a gift approximately every 11-12 days. I do make exceptions & add a high value frog for when Dom
(or someone else), for example, mails me a Set or Starter Set - I send him a token of my appreciation which does next-to-virtually nothing to defray the costs of his time, cost, or effort but at least it's something.
So, bottom line
: I'm at a lower level than most of my forum friends & don't gift often. I'm not 'dexing so I don't send color wheels or frog floods. If you're heavy into floods, build an Ark.
Feel free to change your mind (via PM) since I offered the Violet Caelus Quilta since you said you were breeding. For one brief instant I forgot it wasn't as simple as on Plus+. I'm not actively or surreptitiously seeking friends but I'd be happy to welcome you as a friend if you haven't already changed you mind, given my odd self-imposed rules.
p.s.: Thanks to all who are not gifting until I get this darn set finished. Two more to go but I've given up for a while since I was getting 90% Anuras & 10% of the wrong Quilta. (Guess what I'll be gifting in a while!!) Set will be done in time to gift to another, however -- not to fear.
