    Hi Guys:
    I decided to clean my sewing room and take inventory the other day! Bad idea...even if I like the more organize kaos that I created. I pulled out my tub that holds my "Works in Progress" projects.....I came to realize I make quilt TOPS, I don't always get them to the QUILT stage! :lol: :lol: So many patterns, so little time. Well, my WIP's number 21...those are only tops that need to be sandwiched and backed. I also have at least 5 dozen blocks I've made to test the pattern which could be made into "something." My challenge to you, count your WIP's and share with all of us your numbers. Maybe by actually counting how may things are sitting there will motive us (Me, for sure) to finish up some of them. :wink:

    I have about 5 quilts that are cut and that is about it then I have 8 that are either pieced together or almost all pieced together, and I can't even count all the projects that are waiting to get started. The sad thing is I bought the material so long ago that I don't even remember what all the fabric is for. I hope I am able to get some of these numbers down and more quilts actually finished.

    I have one top done, needs to be finished.
    One I have been working on for about a year, but had to put away due to moving. That's the one that the stupid packer took out of the plastic and put pieces here, there and everywhere on me. UGH!
    I have 1 that I am currently working on....a fat quarter quilt for a little girl and then will have another of the same pattern but different colors for the little girls' sister.
    I think that's about it....
    So, that's what? 4?

    I know I have 3 quilts tops waiting to go on the frame to be quilted and 1 on the frame. 1 snowman one that is almost done, but who wants to work on snow in the spring. 2 in the drawing planning stage. Material and fabric picked out for 3 (at least). Plus other projects that aren't quilting.

    I don't count having bought the fabric and the pattern as a WIP that is a PIW project in waiting :)

    WIPs let see here
    1) card trick quilt
    2) scrappy double pinwheel blocks - just messed around one day and they turned out now I need 200 to finish the quilt
    3) K-State rag time
    4) Watermelon log cabin
    5) Yellow Brick Road - just have to put it together
    6) Kansas Troubles Binding

    And this is just off the top of my head :P

    Do I have to count the ones I have sorted with fabric together, but not cut yet? Just the ones I have cut and in varying stages of doneness, including tops finished and needing to be quilted I have 8. If I have to count the collected fabric, sorted and in the q, I have, well, more. :D

    Wow Feathers!! I did the same thing last week-mucked out my quilt room and pulled those WIPS out. I only have 4 large quilts to be finished, but like you have several blocks of things I have started and never got together. But I always have lots of stuff ready to go since I sell all my items. So I have about 5 table runners to back and quilt, plus the ones I'm putting together for a customer.
    Lots of coaster sets and potholders that I cut out from my leftovers before the fabric goes in the scrap heap, and about 60 or so tater bags to finish putting together. Whew! I have farmers market starting the 31st so have lots to do!!!!!

    I'd be embarrassed to say--I can tell you that hanging over my drying rack I have 2 quilts that are in rows, waiting to be put together for a top, 3 "test" blocks, and 16 yards of fabric hanging, just waiting to be cut.

    I won't admit how much is on my sewing table, ironing board, design table, and...in my purse. I always keep some handpiecing in there for ....carpool line. Amazing what I get done waiting on my kids. :lol:

    Wow!! I don't feel like the lone ranger after all!!! I have 4, one quillow that needs to be tied, 1 baby quilt that the top needs to be finished and then quilted, 1 for my granddaughter that I embroidered the blocks for now I just have to quilt and finish the edges and then a log cabin type. Out of all these only one is from 5(+) years ago. I am really excited after all these 4 I can start fresh. And it is such a good feeling to get them done and to the person I have been thinking about during the whole time I have been working on the quilt.

    When I first started quilting I made a rule for myself that I couldn't start a new project until I'd finished the last one. That lasted for about 3 quilts! Here's my current list:

    King-sized Irish Chain that I've been quilting FOREVER. Only about half done.

    Sampler quilt that needs sashing strips and then to be put together and quilted

    Kansas Troubles quilt I started hand quilting, but then had to switch to machine quilting because I couldn't get a needle through it to stitch in the ditch

    Wall hanging for a friend's birthday that needs to be quilted

    Log cabin I'm still piecing

    And I won't even talk about all the quilts still in my head! So I guess that's five. And I really am trying to work on them, but my @*!$% job keeps getting in the way!

    When I saw the subject line, I counted up 8 in my head, then when I started reading others comments I was like, "oh yeah, I have a pieced on I'm working on, and oh yeah, I've started one of those....." so maybe 11 or 12 (without looking!) I have to agree with mgshaw......Feathers.....you are the WIP Queen.......WIP it, WIP it Good!!!!!!! lol!

    I'm just a newbie, so my numbers are relatively low. I say relatively, since it'll take me 10 times the normal amount of time since I'm a newbie :D

    1 Broken Lone Star, Queen to King size, pieced and waiting on finding some elusive Timeless Treasures fabric to do a ribbon border. This is my big kahona, my very first quilt.
    2 9 Patch & Stripe baby quilt tops done - I won't finish those for a while, don't want to kick in grandbaby Karma just yet :wink:
    1 9 Patch & Stripe throw on the design wall, waiting for setting triangle fabric that should be in today or tomorrow
    1 9 Patch & Stripe runner to match the throw, pieced but not quilted
    1 morphed coffee table runner pieced but not quilted
    (are we detecting a pattern here? LOL)
    1 Card Trick runner pieced but (can you guess???) not quilted yet
    1 Quarter Log Cabin throw (yes, pieced but not quilted yet)
    1 Bits & Pieces throw in the piecing stage

    Thank goodness Joann's has Warm & Natural 50% off this weekend - I *might* need to stock up on batting :lol:

    Well if needing binding last minute stitches and things like that count, then I am wayover the top of too many. :D But I have two quilt tops to finish, working on the mystery quilt, have a baby quilt to make............ too much.

    OK, guys, being the unofficial "Queen of WIP" I'll drop back in from time to time to see how ya all are doing on your WIPs. I know you'll all start finishing things right and left now that you know they need to be done. I've been blissfully sewing along working on this and that but never getting the projects finished and that is now my focus. FINISH! FINISH! FINISH! :lol: :wink:

    1 binding has about 12" left to sew
    1 all of the binding needs to be sewn
    2 quilt tops (I-Spy) ready to go
    3 more I-Spy's almost cut out but have all the fabric for
    1 I was going to make a block (three D) quilt but couldn't figure out how to sew them together after i cut all the fabric.

    So I guess I have 8 started one way or another

    Wow I didn't realize that I had that much going on and i started in January

    Woohooo, I just finished a large queen yesterday, washed and ready for bed. I just need to make pillow cases. BUT:
    I have five BOM started
    8 tops ( 16 went to my daughter a couple months ago, those were from last year)
    Not to bad I guess.
