    my WIPS are out of control

    I started gathering then up and getting backs ready for the quilt tops-oh my.this is the downstairs pile-there is more upstairs.this pile is 2 ft tall.9 queens,5 laps ,5 baby tops and about 30 runners and toppers.I must hoard WIPS,LOL.I am quilting them now until I run out of batting.I have another pile like this upstairs that I did not do the backs for yet.I feel embarrassed and liberated at the same time.I have spent a long time piecing without quilting this year-time to change that.I will post quilts as they are quilted.

    It's easy for those tops to sneak up on us. LOL Look at it this way, now you're ready for Christmas, birthdays, baby showers, etc. Looking forward to seeing them quilted.

    That's a GREAT stack of loving and caring tops. Consider backing tops with tops for a reversible quilt and cut the pile quickly. That's what I do and they are doublely wonderful.

    You can either think of them as work undone, or work half done!
    To me, they are standby quilts. If you need a quilt in a hurry, you have a stash on standby, already half (or 3 quarters) done.
