Going public to hold myself accountable

I'm putting it out there publicly in every possible way - I'm going to finish hand quilting this quilt for my bed by December 31, 2015!

I made this quilt top TEN YEARS AGO and keep putting off finishing the quilting.  Meanwhile, I finish projects to give to everyone else.  It's time to finish something for ME!  So, instead of always knitting at home in the evenings, I'm going to spend some time hand quilting as well.  As the evenings get cooler, this prospect becomes more and more appealing.  Help keep me accountable, people.  If you see me starting something new, remind me of my vow.

And if you're interested, I posted a challenge to others to finish something they've been working on forever over on my shop's Facebook page (  Feel free to share for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to The Stitchin' Post!

Yes, you need to finish this one for yourself. And as it cools down (I hope soone) it will be a warm welcome in your lap to work on.

I have two projects that need to get finished so they can be sent to Oregon ... And one needs to arrive before Christmas because it is a tree skirt. The other is a "big boy" quilt for my grandson and since they are going to the same house, I want them to go together. THEN, I must get a present made for my daughter in Boston. All the others got Advent calendars but she would like something for her door. Any ideas?

I have my inlaws quilt on the quilt frame. It's been there about 5 years now. I did quilt about 120 hours on it, but, it's only 1/4th quilted (I'm quilting double feathers, bad choice on my part). I keep saying I'll get back to it, but, I haven't touched it in over 3 years now.

I have projects from 2007 that I need to work on all while trying to do current ones I need for gifts.
If I had to hand quilt it would be another 10 years for me to finish.
Pretty quilt
