    I have a drawer with 20 tops! they are various sizes from table runners, wall hanging to bed quilts. One of them is at least 10 years old!!! I have joined the UFO group on the forum hoping to be inspired to finish, at least some of them. Does any one suffer from the "topper disease?"

    I have a handful of tops to be finished. (You need to go on a retreat and take some of those with.)
    The ones I don't finish I may have hit a bump and got thrown off track. I dislike finding out where I am on the quilt and trying to fix it.

    Guilty.... I'm a topper. But I only have one top, ready to be put together into a quilt, at this time. I have several tops 'in progress'. It seems like I always get interrupted when I'm working on a quilt.... currently it's to finish my granddaughter's wedding quilt. I kept telling her to let me know when they were going to plan the wedding and then they up and eloped...... so now I'm playing catch up!

    I could finish about 3 tops in a couple of afternoons if I just could have several hours without interruptions... Urgh!!

    Oh yes, I have a few. I do longarming for people and mine always get done last. I have done a few since the first of the year. My goal this year is to finish all of them, of couse I keep making more tops. It will never end I guess. But is fun!! Right
