    73!! And counting...(Quilts in progress & to do...)

    I keep a composition book for quilt planning. I just went through & counted all the quilts that are either in-progress or still need to be made...

    There are 73!!!

    I better get back to work!! Good thing I'm only 23!!

    well...i don't have anywhere near 73 quilts that i am working on in any way, but i do use a composition book to collect thoughts and ideas. i even tape pictures of quilts in there that i find from quilting-related catalogues. i guess you could say it is my quilt brain!

    At that rate you will have 150 by the time you are 25. Even if I am not sewing, I love to think about the next quilt and the next quilt and the next quilt ....

    That's why I sold off a bunch of patterns and quilts! Now my quilt room doesn't look so overwhelming

    And speaking of composition books, did you know that they come in graph paper versions also? The bog box stationery stores carry them ( Office Max, etc.) but I just found them at Wall Mart they are called "Graph Composition" books, and are manufactured by NORCOM. WM doesn't sell them on line but here's the listing so maybe the clerk can locate them for you:

    It's so much easier to sketch out your ideas on all those quilts you are never going to get around to.

    Most of the quilts in the book are pretty much part of an unstated to-do list...

    i have probably 10-20 that are actually WIPs...

    I keep my lists in Word. It makes it real easy to move things from UFO to WIP to the finished lists.
