    Has anyone else started on quilts for christmas presents? I feel like I should get started but a little bug left over from senioritis this year is saying christmas is so far away and I have time! Grr bug!!! But I have 2 quilt tops to quilt by hand, one full, one twin and I have a wide twin comforter which I'm going to tie for my bed so that I don't have 10 blankets on my bed to keep me warm, literally. And then I have 2 that I'm going to machine piece and quilt, one christmas sampler and another with flower blocks in which a majority came from the 2010 bom.

    What do you guys use for motivation because I love to quilt, I'm just not thinking of christms right now!

    make yourself a list of things that you need to get finished and give yourself a deadline for each one, if you have it on paper you can see your progress

    Have fun!

    Just make sure you toss out the ones from previous years first! :shock: 8-)

    edit: the lists, not the items! lol

    Sounds like you have 5 projects to get done for Christmas. If you give yourself the timetable of 1 a month, you'll have them ready by November. Get cracking! :D

    First gb due at Christmas and that is my motivation to have Christmas done and finished by Thanksgiving. It is moving far too slowly right now, partly due to badly sprained right wrist.
