    I have one baby quilt that is finished except for one little piece of quilting and the binding, I have one crib quilt that I am quilting now, I have my dd's wedding quilt that I am supposed to have pieced to send to long arm quilter by first of August :shock: , I have another baby quilt (commissioned) that I have purchased the material but not started, I have one that has all the fabric picked out and bought (for my queen bed) and pattern chosen, and I have two more baby quilts with the fabric bought and the pattern chosen - but they haven't been started.

    I want to make a blue, yellow, and white quilt for my bedroom and I think I am going to buy the fabrics and give them to friends to do Birthday blocks for me. My birthday is in January.

    This doesn't count my stash or the patterns I have chosen to use, but not bought the fabrics yet. So my answer is 8 right now WIPs.

    Aside from a couple of block a month kind of projects that have to be an ongoing thing, I try to only have one project at a time going. I have lots I haven't started yet, but once I start one, I try to finish it before I move on to another. If I let myself, my expertise at procrastinating would help me to never finish anything! :)

    Well, time to admit that my hobby is really BUYing patterns! I buy more patterns than I make quilts :-)

    I have two small quilts started and fabric washed and ironed for another plus many planned, i.e., memory quilt for my MIL, hankie quilt from my grans. hankies, etc. I like to finish my projects before starting another, but it's hard!

    Well,l I don't know exactly how many are in process, I have 9 that are already spraybasted and sandwiched waiting to be quilted, 1 top done with a back ready, 4 more tops (all extra queen) that only need a border or two, 5 block exchanges that the blocks are done but just need me to decide how to put together, 5 block of the months that have the blocks done also, 4 more that the fabrics and patterns have been matched and tons of ideas and patterns yet to be put together. I haven't been sewing because of complications of surgery, but I am ready soon to begin again. I have a new sewing room in process almost ready to be completed too. Can't wait!!!

    I only have one quilt working at a time . . . I may have many planned and even have fabric ready to go . . . but I only work on one at a time because otherwise I might not finish. I do, sometimes, have another kind of project in the works - currently I also have an afghan I'm working on because DD wants it and it's easy to crochet blocks for it while riding the bus home from work.

    When I was much younger (back around the time of the dinosaurs), I would start lots of projects and seldom finish any of them. So now I try to finish anything I start. I ain't necessarily fast, but I get there in the end. :lol:

    I admire your self control. Right now I have two finished tops, one almost finished top, one I'm hand quilting that's about half done, one with blocks I pieced that needs to be put together. I also have about 6 projects all lined up that will use blocks I purchased from eBay.

    right now I'm quilting one baby quilt, by hand. One done waiting me to buy the backing material and machine quilt and another partly sewn and partly cut out. because I'm making a Halloween quilt and I've still go to figure out some of the pieces on that one.I like to have at least two going. Sometimes I feel like quilting and some times sewing. some time my fingers need a rest from quilting so I work on a sewing project then. I don't like to have too many going at a time cause I'll abandon my least favorite.
