    Yes, and It also took me forever to get it done. If you don't like the fabrics it is hard to stay motivated!! At least it is for me.

    Yes and still working on it, but it was for me so no biggie. But since its for a friend and its a memory quilt just I think the best thing is to just buckle down and get it done. You will feel so much better when it done, and she will be so thankful

    Been there with my mother's big brown ugly quilt! She wanted it all in little strips so I did a string quilt. OMG! I thought I would never finish that! Not one speck of blue or green or purple! But I knew it was important to her so I kept going. I just kept telling myself that I would do something really pretty on my next project. Still haven't gotten to my 'really pretty' but it's coming! Can you add some burgandy and navy to break it up a bit? Hang in there!

    Yes, I am working on one right now, I didn't like the design pattern she choose, didn't like trying to figure it out, and I should enjoy it, but it has been 7 months in the making and I am not done. Every time I tried working on it, I hated it, so I couldn't make myself do it. I am still trying.

    Oh yes. I think everyone on the site has probably had this happen at least once. Post some pictures and get some positive feedback. There are a lot of people looking to encourage others here and sometimes that's all we need to get going.
    Best of luck scratching this off the to do list.

    Yes!!!!!. My daughters memory quilt. I used all of her sorority T shirts. ( I didn't want her to join this sorority). It was big and heavy and hard to work with. I was so glad when it was done. By the way, she loves it.

    Been there done that have the T shirt. That is why I don't participate in block of the month etc. Also why I rarely take any kind of class. I learned a long time ago to just do it. THat is the way I approach household chores that are far from being my favorite like washing dishes, toliets etc. As a quilter for hire I have had to work on some doozies.
