    So, I am a compulsive non-finisher. I get so excited about new patterns I come across that I am constantly starting new projects before finishing the last.
    I have pledged to myself to finish this quilt BEFORE I can work on anything else! I thought if I shared this pledge with others, I would help keep me going on it. Off to a pretty good start I think...

    I like the looks of your project; please finish so we can the wonderful outcome. Waiting...I am always starting new projects before I finish one, but I immediately go back to my unfinished project because I am so excited to see the outcoming. Knowing that I have another project waiting to be finished makes me want to finish the first one so I can move on to something else.

    Off to a GREAT start, I would say. Let's see it finished. I also have several things started for the exact same reason. :oops:

    I am really liking what I see so far. This pattern will really make a great scrappy quilt. Would you share the name of the block or pattern?

    LauraEllen,
    I cannot think of you not finishing that beautiful WIP! I will help you and commit myself to work on several quilts I have going on.
    First let's stablish a feasible goal... How much time do you quilt per week and how long does it take you to piece one block? With that tell me what is your goal. I tell you that my goal is two blocks per week: one AOTH and one BOM Houses, both Projects with the fantastic people of this forum
    Let's do it!
