    "Rhapsody" has been in the frame for many months. If I worked on it just one hour a day, it could have been done by now. I need to be pushed. I need YOU to tell me to get this finished by........

    I'm assuming this is to be hand-quilted, right? How about setting a goal of the 4th of July? I think that only 4 weeks or so might give you a push.
    BTW, I wish I could hand-quilt, but I'm just a beginner. So I'm trying to do my best at machine-quilting. I wish I knew of a LAQ close by in North Alabama.

    Forget the one hour a day thing. Set aside the better part of a weekend and just go at it. Once you get a good chunk done, the rest will be easy.

    A good part of it is done, and that is why I feel bad leaving it. Also, others are waiting.

    It needs to be done, soon, so you can enter it in the fair! That is a doable goal, and you just might get a ribbon, a bonus!

    I agree with everything SulaBug said! But I have learned not to set dead lines. NEVER works for me!! Your quilt is lovely. Hope you get it done soon.

    C'mon girl! Get that thing done! It's much to pretty to just be sitting there. We all want to see the finished product.

    AGONY!!!! I could live without chocolate, but not buying anymore fabric would be torture!! Just put the lash to my back now.

    Hey, wait a minute! I said to give me a deadline, not smack me around. :D

    I feel it would be extremely hypocrytical (sp??) of me to set a deadline for you because my handquilted projects take usually over a year to finish and I do try to work on it at least an hour every night. However I have no qualms about giving you inspiration to finish. I seem to remember, way back when I first joined the QB you had a lovely quilt planned called Danbury. HAH bet you thought we forgot about that one didn't you? Well let Danbury be your inspiration to finish Rhapsody. Obviously you can't get Danbury on the rack until Rhapsody is off. So quit staring at that lonely quilt in the rack in the corner and get off the 'puter and get thee to thy needle and thread woman!
