they're baaaaaaccckkkk

Remember the quilt project? 
Two twin sized quilts (one for each of the boys) in blues and greens...a project I started oh, I don't know, 2+ years ago?
They are back on the scene and I swear they will get done. If it kills me (and it just might) they WILL get done. My current strategy involves just leaving them out and vowing to not put my sewing machine away until they are done. Two quilts and a sewing machine tend to take up a lot of real estate so it can be quite motivating. Plus, as soon as that machine gets tucked away it's easy to take a big project like this completely off your radar screen so I know I can't let that happen again. I'm also giving myself some intense guilt trips and while that isn't healthy, it does work.
I have come to realize that this project was probably more than I bargained for and if I had to do it over again I probably wouldn't. Plus, if they were turning out to be super cute I would most likely be more motivated but the fact of the matter is that I'm just not that good at this. It won't stop me from tackling another quilt project I'm sure but not something of this scale. The next time I post about these quilts it will be to tell you that they are complete!

This is what I do when I want to get something finished leave it all out! The fabrics you have look lovely and I think once you get going and see how good it looks it will motivate you to finish.
