    So, my DH and I were having lunch and I said, "I think I have a really good idea for a quilt!" He looked at me with those big brown eyes and said "Really? I'm just wondering how long it will take to actually quilt it once it's made."

    Hmmmm....I think he's suggesting I have a problem with finishing projects. I really have NO idea what on earth he is talking about. :shock:

    Sometimes the joy is in the planning and piecing!!! I too tend to let finished projects sit for a while before I get around to quilting them.

    dh wouldn't dare say that to me. If he did I'd point out the unfinished painting in the dining room, the unfinished ceiling redo in the kitchen, the carpet in the entry that was supposed to be changed to wood a few years ago, the bathroom floor that still doesn't have the trim put on, etc etc and I could go on and on all day. DH has a problem with finishing projects that is much worse than the one I have (and yes, I have the same problem).

    I like your profile pic. I like your quilt. I am making a quilt for "Quilts of Valor" Really like your pattern. Where can I get the pattern and what is the name? I have not seen this pattern.

    Actually hubby is really very supportative of my quilting....cause he knows I won't complain about all of his unfinished projects....

    Do you mean to say that men do things like that around the house? Not here. I'm just back downstairs after being called on to fix DH's 1890 recliner after the screws worked out of the reclining adjustments. Not to be retro-sexist but I'd get a lot more sewing done if I wasn't doing fix-its in a very, very old home.

    Your comeback should be..." all of my(your) ideas are great ones! And, I know someone with a quilting machine who will quilt it for half a cent / sq. Inch(me)!! Where there is a will there is a way!
    Happy quilting!

    If my needles had a remote control attached to them, my DH could put one out in a few hours.
