Default Sewing Room Cleanup

Oh my goodness, I have to publicly admit I have a serious ADDICTION to quilting and it's about time I did something about it..... by selling some of my quilts. I have just tried to have a little clean up in the 'sewing room' - pulled out at least 25 little quilts for a red/white/black exhibition I hope to have early next year. Aside from those, there are over 150 completed quilts, more than 50 quilt tops waiting to be quilted and a whole tub of completed blocks just waiting to be made into quilt tops. I also have 10 quilt tops sandwiched and pinned ready to quilt.... Ack, where to start !!!

Might have to have a pop-up shop soon to sell (or give away) some of my quilts I want rid of now.

I am not even going to try and sort out my fabrics today....I am completely overwhelmed by what I have found so far.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Not a lot of finished quilts. Lots of table toppers and runners and LOTS of UFO's.

About half of these are lap size or smaller and yes I give some to charity but many I get so 'attached' to I just can't bear to part with them. I can so easily start a project but find it harder to complete one... because I have another project that just needs to be started... all the time.

Wow. I probably have enough fabric to complete 150 quilts (feels like it, anyway), but I'm certainly nowhere near that productive!

You are really productive. I am still at the point that family members want them faster than I can make them. I get attached to mine too, but have only been able to keep two so far.
