That is one smart husband.

It's looking great! The lattice certainly keeps the blocks from looking so jumbled up. So what is the width of the lattice? Need that info for a future project.


Good for you and your husband! This is going to be one good lookin’ quilt!!


This is going to be a beautiful quilt and wonderful colors....yes, your husband was a smart fellow and good for him on mentioning a finish. You will be so happy when this is going to the it!

Wise words. I can never handle more than 1 or 2 projects at a time without feeling frazzled, torn and everything you said. I need the feeling of accomplishment and completion!

Debbie R.

That is great advice. And it's inspiring to see how it has motivated you. Go, Nicole! It's going to be a beautiful quilt. Makes me think I should go finish something, and I know just what it should be.

I, too, would feel disjointed and unfulfilled with too many projects going at the same time. I also felt like I was wasting money as I would have things started and then sadly, unfinished. Quite awhile back, I began only focusing on one thing at a time (unless it was an ongoing QAL, in which case I worked on one project in between) I feel I am much more productive with my time and my finishes when I work this way... that is not to say, that I don't create a "To Do" list for the year, that gets added to and altered along the way. It gives me the excited anticipation of beginning a new project. Your quilt is beautiful and there will be one lucky recipient!!


That is gorgeous and congratulations on making so much progress. You may inspire me.


I really like what you are creating. Aren't others blogs great for inspiration?

Mary Kastner

Yahoo for you! I have to redo my "To Do" list and get busy. Keep inspiring me !



That quilt is going to be beautiful. I have heard similar words from my husband. Sometimes we just need a kick in the right direction to get moving again. Can't wait to see the finish. I love all of your quilts.


Your husband's words were just the nudge you needed to just do it! Now you have a plan & a finish in sight! It's going to be a beauty! Have a nice weekend. Stay well!


It is so gorgeous! I need your husband to have a 'talk' with me because I feel scattered right now with multiple projects in various stages. ;p

It's stunning. I also get sidetracked with too many projects started and have to have a talk with myself but life goes on and there is always something to look forward to finishing.

Robby H.

It's looking good! Sometimes when they're all helpful like that it's hard to know whether to kiss them or give them the stink eye. Not that I'd know or anything. LOL

Your husband is a card, lol.
How exciting to see the blocks grow into rows. Glad you were able to get what you wanted for the setting and get stitching them together. Very satisfying, I'm sure, to pull them off the design walls!


Finish something...sheesh guess we should've thought of that one, lol! It's so easy to get sidetracked, but that is going to be one beauty when it's done! Good for you for sticking to it!

Good advice from your husband - it’s nice when they can help us through challenges, isn’t it? Your first column looks great!
