    When I first started quilting, I told myself that I was going to start one project, finish it, and then start another one.

    I kept meeting other quilters that didn't seem to ever finish anything. They had many projects going on at once. I couldn't understand why.

    Now, I'm trying to understand how I'm going to finish all of these projects I have started and all the ones in my head and waiting in the wings.

    How do we accumulate so many WIPs?

    My goal is to get back to doing one thing at a time.

    Is anybody else with me on this?

    I absolutely can't do just one thing. I usually have a bazillion projects in the air all the time. They all get done - eventually - but in piece parts.

    That's what I do. I finish one before I start another. I would be too crazy fretting if I didn't finish as I go.

    Sorry Not Me. I love the creative stage of starting a quilt too much to have to finish one before I can start another. I figure I will get them all done in time to give them as gifts when gift giving time comes around. Good luck to you on acheiving your goal. We must all dance to our own tune. :)

    I started out this way but now I have accumulated some WIPs really trying to finish them up now - but I still buy fabric when I find something that catches my eye.

    I just feel myself getting stressed out that there is so much to do, and I haven't done it yet. I don't understand why I put that undue pressure on myself. *sigh*

    Yup, started out doing one at a time then the ideas started to flow. So now I have limited myself to no new projects til I finish what I have. The only exception is a guilt with a purpose and a due date.
