    This is another itty-bitty wall hanging. Still practicing my applique.

    The second project is a 'cheater' quilt. I don't think I'll do another. By using the whole cloth I missed out on the part of quilting I enjoy the most, piecing and got to do the stuff I enjoyed the least, borders, pinning a sandwich, and binding. Oh, well. I bought this because I fell in love with the fabric and I still really, really like it! The colors alone will keep you warm!!!

    Thanks you two. I keep on trying because everyone here is so encouraging. I find that now I sometimes even enjoy doing this handwork stuff. :lol:

    Yvonne, the are both adorable.
    Cathrine, that's why I have to have at least three quilts going usually in different stages because once you get tired of looking at one it's hard to be particular, you just want to hurry up and finish it.

    Kathy,
    Amen to that!

    Plus if you have multiple projects going you can finish up mulitple projects all about the same time. It makes you look really productive. Don't tell anyone!!!

    I simply cannot work on only one quilt at a time. I get so bored!

    I usually have two or three going at once. that way, when i'm sick of looking at one i can switch to another. i rotate through my UFOs.

    when i have two or three tops done i stop to sandwich and baste. then back to the piecing for a while. once the guilt sets in about not doing the quilting on the waiting projects, i stop to do that to all of them before going back to piecing.

    since i very much dislike the binding phase, i usually have at pile waiting to be bound before i step aside from the fun parts to do those. when i'm finally in the right mood, i "strike while the iron is hot" and do them all.

    Yvonne ... as always i love what you've done. i hope to have your skill some day. i need to either retire or find a stinkin' rich man who'll support me in the manner to which i'd like to become accustomed. then i could practice whatever i wanted, whenever i wanted for as long as i wanted. :P

    Ditto Patrice, work on one thing at a time? Never heard of such a thing :lol:

    By the way where can I order one of those from (stinkin' rich man that is) :lol: Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to quilt when and what you want without worrying about having to waste time going to work to pay for it all. Ahhh such is the stuff dreams are made of.

    Yvonne love your darling picnic quilt, really like the colours and zing in your whole cloth too. I too enjoy the cutting and piecing of a top more than the quilting of it. Hence the large stack of UFOs. :oops: I hear you can call them WIPs now, which sounds much more productive :) I wonder how long you can have a WIP before it becomes a UFO
