Okay.......I don't know where all of mine fit in these categories but, I'll do my best.

UFO's: I have at least 8 tops that need to be quilted.

WIP's: a queen size made w/all Kansas Troubles fabrics, a bed size Stars Around the Garden, a small wallhanging w/half done binding & if they count here ....... over a dozen projects that I have done one or two steps or blocks on and then put back away.

PIGS: If I only count the ones I have all the fabric for already and not the ones in my head.............at my last count I had 113. Yes, one hundred thirteen.

Talk about obsession! And the sad thing is....I added another PIG yesterday after visiting the quilt store. Then, as I was leaving the quilt shop they received the new Nancy Halvorsen Christmas line. So, I told them I would be back today to pick up that fabric for yet, another PIG!

HELP!

3 current projects --they are going to the mtns with me, maybe I can get something done on hem or horros even complete one. One cut out, one in progress--needs to be quilted, fabric for another--pink dogwood quilt, two from flea mkts that need to have the tops done. And like Patrice syas, don't count the ones in my head--No one can count that high I think--well..........maybe another quilter could LOL

She came to visit once and started dusting! If truth be known, I don't think the quilt police are actually quilters. :roll:
OMG! so, quilting police is the same as a MIL! :lol: :D hahahaha!!!!
and when I think of the PIGS...I think Pigs In a Poke! It just comes to mind...I know ppl that call a bag a "poke"...my brain works in mysterious ways, or just works too much all together! ;)

I had to smile when I saw "Dropping the F-Word". I thought the f-word was what you say when you've cut 2 yards of your favorite fabric into 2 inch squares and then realizing it should have been 3 inch. I'm still laughing.

2 inch squares that should-a-been 3 inch squares are just new opportunities!

They say butchers make hamburger out of their miscuts, carpenters make sawdust out of theirs, quilters must just make alternate designs out of their miscuts! :wink:

Oh heck(or one of them "H" words)! It's coming up on three months later... and I am still working on Homeward Bound's flying geese backgrounds, the YBR is still un-basted, Dazzler has been put away till I figure out how to make the squares not look like the ground in an earthquake from 20,000 feet, and the scrap quilt... well, it's coming along slowly. On days when the head hurts from too much going on at work, I will go to my studio and just... iron. I have no idea how much fabric that quilt is going to take, so I have lots. The lap quilt I have used for learning how to use fat threads for quilting is still... unfi...shed (does that make it a U-word?).

It sure would be nice if the boss told me to go home and quilt awhile, but I am not holding my breath.

I've only started quilting so I only got one unfinished quilting project (the Super Mario mushroom quilted pillow).

I'm still a bit of a novice quilter, so my UFOs, WIPs and PIGs are pretty much under control. I tend to go for the fabric - (Oooooooo, pretty! I've been wanting to work with border stripes... how much should i get... hmmm... i guess 3 yards is good for a start... look at that gorgeous batik...etc.) - and patterns, especially from QNM. When I cut out a quilt, I generally follow through without it taking tooooo long. (clothing, now THAT'S another story)

My sewing room currently has - a bin of country color fabrics that i'm flirting with making into a log cabin or perhaps a really nifty F&P scrap quilt for myself (i've never kept a quilt - i just shiver under sheets and blankets)... assorted bits and pieces of blue fabrics and bandanas for a quilt made to fit a truck bed for camping - he doesn't care about the pattern and it'll be tied - i just need to START it!... then there's the baby quilt for my nephew who will be 2 in May (whoops....)... the candy bright and black fabrics for a jewel box quilt... the slowly burgeoning pile of rich/dark batiks that i'm falling in love with... the 20 yards of unbleached muslin destined to become a chemise and assorted muslins for clothing/costuming and practice pieces to learn how to marble... bits and pieces to make a charm quilt via English pp, which i've never done before... a bookcase of fat quarters because i'm addicted to the packs from KQ... also somewhere in there is batting scraps, two sewing machines, a serger, a desk, an ironing board and iron and a loveseat (for handsewing). Thank goodness i sleep in the tiny little bedroom of my 2-bedroom apartment and keep the "master" for sewing! There are no UFOs currently (please don't hurt me!!!) and less than half a dozen orphan blocks. No PIGs - that's what the bookcases are for! :lol:
