I am so bad.  I like piecing and picking fabric and stuff.  But I hardly ever get to the quilting part of the project.  I have at least four tops pieced and about 6 more quilts where aall the blocks are done but they need to be assembled. 

My goal for the summer is to get some of these finished.

 Anybody else have trouble with follow through?

yes.  but no...  my quilt box has a whole bunch of tops in... but then i will get a deadline when something needs to get done and i will finish 5 quilts all at the same time.  but i still prefer piecing tops.

I don't even get as far as piecing the tops sometimes lol! I have a lot of fabric gathered and just need to get on it! I do have one top pieced that I need to quilt that has been sitting around for a while....but to be fair it was sitting around at my sil's house for over a month, and it's only been at mine for a couple weeks so far.

I far too often leave projects incomplete.  
I plan to finish my work in progress, first quilt in the next 2 weeks, hopefully I do.

I am so happy to have finished my first quilt in two or three years.  It is not perfect but it is OH so snuggly.
