When I first heard this expression I really chuckled. Then I realized it's the only way many of us get projects finished. It is a bear to struggle with a full or queen quilt on your DSM. I know, because I've done it myself.
This customer sent me a quilt shortly after I started quilting for others in 2005. She's from the other side of the country and we have never met. I did one quilt and then assumed she found a quilter that lived a little closer than 3000 miles away. Last month, out of the blue, I got an email asking if I could quilt a top for her. She said she finally got another quilt finished.
Now to attach and hand sew the binding for her. What a way to finish your Christmas gift giving! Works great for both of us.
What are you working on for Christmas? Will have have it finished? I'm talking about this Christmas, you know, the one that is going to be here in less than 40 days.
