    Sewing Room Cleanup

    Oh my goodness, I have to publicly admit I have a serious ADDICTION to quilting and it's about time I did something about it..... by selling some of my quilts. I have just tried to have a little clean up in the 'sewing room' - pulled out at least 25 little quilts for a red/white/black exhibition I hope to have early next year. Aside from those, there are over 150 completed quilts, more than 50 quilt tops waiting to be quilted and a whole tub of completed blocks just waiting to be made into quilt tops. I also have 10 quilt tops sandwiched and pinned ready to quilt.... Ack, where to start !!!

    Might have to have a pop-up shop soon to sell (or give away) some of my quilts I want rid of now.

    I am not even going to try and sort out my fabrics today....I am completely overwhelmed by what I have found so far.

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    Not a lot of finished quilts. Lots of table toppers and runners and LOTS of UFO's.

    About half of these are lap size or smaller and yes I give some to charity but many I get so 'attached' to I just can't bear to part with them. I can so easily start a project but find it harder to complete one... because I have another project that just needs to be started... all the time.

    Wow. I probably have enough fabric to complete 150 quilts (feels like it, anyway), but I'm certainly nowhere near that productive!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    You are really productive. I am still at the point that family members want them faster than I can make them. I get attached to mine too, but have only been able to keep two so far.
