    I usually make quilts just for myself. I at this moment have three quilts ready to quilt but I can't quilt them myself because I have MS and it is hard for me to do. So I have to save the money to get them quilted. If I make a quilt for someone else they buy the fabric and pay to have it quilted. I will make small projects as gifts like wall hangings that I can quilt myself.

    I make the quilt, sandwich it and quilt it right away, before starting the next one. I don't want to put it off and then lose it or get overwhelmed with a large stack to do. I like making each one unique, so try not to do the same thing over and over with my quilting. If I did a stack of them, I would be more apt to do that.

    I have one in the quilt frames (I hand quilt) and one on the design board. Am thinking about the next one, but won't start it until I finish quilting and binding the one in the frame and the one on the design board goes into the frames. I work full time, so have to consider the limited time I have.

    I usually have multiple projects going, but I prioritize them according to when I have to have them done. Just finished a baby quilt (needs bound), and I'm half finished with a Secret Santa project on another board. I have a queen quilt top that needs to be marked and put on the frame. There's a bargello half done on one side of my design wall and a graduation top for my oldest grandaughter all cut out and ready to be put together. There's a "me" top folded up and ready to be quilted when I finally find some time! It's all sure a lot of fun! Love it!!

    I go both ways. I currently have a stack of about 5-10 flimsies. When I have a priority for something, I work it straight thru. I quilt on my home machine. In the past I have made a great many queen and king quilts. The last year, my shoulder has been giving me heck, so I have stopped quilting twin and above. I passed 3 charity twins on to a guild sister to quilt for me on the guild's LA. (I am too disabled to use it.) I am doing more and more QAYG these days. I get bored with a single project, so I tend to trade off between them.

    I also hand quilt - I have one on the frame that I'm finishing for a friend. Should be finished around Thanksgiving time. I have a 2nd quilt top that I'm working on in my sewing room to hopefully be ready to go on the frame shortly after the current one is finished - although that may be Christmas when it finally gets on the frame.

    I have a 3rd quilt that I use as a "filler" quilt - one that I work on in between when the finished quilt is completed and the next project gets put on. Does that make sense?? I can't just sit and watch TV, so this "filler" quilt is what I work on while watching TV. It's actually for me, so it doesn't matter how long it takes me to finish it.
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)
