    I like to work on more than one project at a time. Keeps me from getting bored with one.

    I am working on several different projects, some I am piecing, one I am FMQ and one I am paperpiecing. Keeps me from getting tired of any project.

    Amen to that. I am retired after 50 years of doing what somebody else wanted me to do. Also used to have nasty headaches, tummy aches, etc.
    Now the cats and I do whatever we want, when we want. We all have our own lives to live. Sometimes we just watch the birds, deer, squirrels, turkeys, etc. out the window (and we live in the city). We don't do sick any more, either.

    I too am a beginner and have found I am a person of "great beginnings." Just when I get part way started on something another "great idea" comes to me. I'm trying hard to focus on finishing my great beginnings before my sewing room turns into a complete disaster.

    I don't call them UFO'S, I call the works in progress, WIP'S. because they are always in the midst of my thinking and planning on how to finish them up. I almost always have two going at the same time and some hand work to work on extra.

    :P Love your avatar. My place is so small that even though I am organized I am afraid that I wouldn't be able to find what I needed if I had more than one project going at a time. Would love to find out though. Maybe when I get a larger place.

    yes that is the way i do it. I have about 3 projects going at once. It helps me to be able to switch when i need a fresh look. Now if I could just have 3 machines to work with.

    A good plan is one that works. If this works for you, you've got it made! Might be best to keep the works in progress to a set number, 3 sounds just right to me. Good luck.

    Welcome from Florida. No, I usually stick with one quilt at a time. I have been known to start a new one before completely finishing the last, but that's the fun of it! Right?

    I have to do one at a time, start to finish. I like having the finished projects stacked on the shelf ready when I need a gift or a charity call. Just me.

    I ALWAYS have 2-3-4 quilts going at the same time due to geting bored easily. Popping from one to another is fun for me. I'd be quite careful about keeping the quilts seperated well, such as keeping all cut fabric in seperate bags per quilt.

    I'm too structured. I only work on one at a time. I do not start another until I am totally finished with what I am working on. - Cynthia

    Good for you. I have been a multitasker all my life and continue to be a multiquilter, but there is no reason either of us needs to be outside our own comfort on this.

    I do only one project at a time from start to finish otherwise I don't get to a finish line - I will be working on one and already have pattern material and who it's for in mind and I tell myself if you want to get to that one you will need to finish this one - it works for me.
