    Do you have any unfinished quilting projects? Let's all give ourselves deadlines to get them finished.

    The more I work the more I have to do. I'm trying to finish up three that are in the piecing stage, and six that are tops, plus I have some odd pieces that I am thinking about making linto a sampler quilt.

    When I started quilting again I swore I would finish one quilt at a time, but I was given a couple of tops, and I bought a couple. Now they are flowing like a river.

    I don't know how to machine quilt a larger quilt, I can do a lap quilt, or smaller, but have never attempted anything larger. And it takes a long time to hand quilt. Plus I can't afford to have them done. Just to get a basic FMQ done is 75.00 for a queen.

    Maybe I'll finish the rag baby quilt, I bought it at a yard sale, it came with a bunch of fabric.

    Sometimes I feel like I have quilting ADD. I have quilts in every stage -- patterns and fabric chosen but not cut, tops that still need borders, tops that need batting and backing, quilts that need to be bound, quilts that need to be labelled, etc. I am trying to work on my UFO's, though!

    I am in....I am going to go with the theory that I will finish one as far as I can each week.....'as far as I can' means till I run out of fabric or need wadding etc as money is tight, I have to buy in small quantities over time at the moment.

    I have only been quilting since the last week of November but have many UFO. I am trying to finish one up now.

    I have 2 quilt tops that are almost finished, but don't go upstairs when it is this hot. I do have air up there but seems useless when I only get to stay up there for about an hour.

    My goal is to finish everything my the end of the year. Plus new ones I'm sure!

    Oh, I have so many, I'd cringe if I had to count them. There aren't all big projects at all, just unfinished. July is going to be my sewing month so I hope to make a dent in the pile, too.
    This is my last week of school and it's so busy. Making things relaxes me but there really isn't any time to get into a project which frustrates me. Oh well, if I'm patient and just plug through this week, I should be rewarded with some time.

    I'm still trying to count how many UFOs (I call them WIPs) I have! I have divided them into groups. Tops only, needs binding only, sandwiched but not quilted, blocks that need to be assembled, etc. This makes me sound like I never finish anything but I really do. I have a BOM I have been working on for 13 mos will finish it this month for my GDs college graduation (only a month late. FMQ a top I made a year or so ago for a BD present for a friend should finish in a day or so. Will decide what do next when that is done.
