    Let's just say A LOT and leave it at that! Most are tops waiting to be quilted or quilted waiting for binding. There are a few still in pieces, though. I can think of four I started and never even finished making the blocks for one reason or another. There are probably a few more in pieces hidden away that I forgot about, too.

    I refuse to answer. I was told in elementary school to never put anything in writing that you didn't want to come back on you later.

    So, if my hubs is reading....my answer is "I do not recall"

    I will say the number is shameful!

    Gulp, I stopped counting when the number got very large. Let's say I just pray it's way under 100. This is including all my crafting projects, not just quilting projects.... Many are just books or patterns I bought to make someday.

    I figured I had about 20 total projects, including finished quilt tops that are awaiting quilting. Yeah, when I went through and counted, I have 20 finished TOPS and many more in process.

    ARRGGHHH-what a question! Cause we should not lie, right?

    I just sent out 26 tops for charity quilts, so I think that now I am down to under 40 UFOs. BUT it would really scare me to actually count them........

    You can put those that are not even started in separate category called PIGS (project in a grocery sack). :) Those that you are working on are WIPS. That should cut down on your UFO's. Me I have too many of all three. Ran out or fingers and tows to do the count a long time ago. :)

    2 UFOs, 1 WIP, 2 PIGs, lots of ideas. One UFO I just have to finish quilting the border and bind it. The other UFO is a partially pieced double wedding ring that I started about 10 years ago. Have to finish current WIP for graduation gift May 14. I usually have a purpose for every project before I start. My bed has been waiting for the double wedding ring.

    I have 3 quilted and needing binding.
    12 to be quilted (some are for customers.... I should get off QB and get to work!)
    2 half-pieced

    so, wise words from Tigger, "TTFN. ta-ta for now!"

    I used to have a lot. Right before school started I reduced it to zero. Now that all my stash is here, I am back up to 5. Not much, but there is a reason I stopped them from the beginning. I start this very involved projects and loose interest. Then one day I start again and can't stop until all done. Hoping here for a bit of inspiration.

    I have one hand quilted that still needs binding.
    Two tops that are finished and waiting to go on the LA frame.
    Two tops that I'm working on. One, DD2's graduation and the other, DD1's third baby.

    I have lots of PIGS, though not in grocery bags, since I just went on a 12 days long shop hop! Never enough PIGS in my opinion. Heee!

    I wanted to do a Christmas Star quilt last year for us, but never got past the first block as it was rather puckery. I never did get to try again as one of my GD's put in a special request for Christmas & I was hard-pressed to get it done & shipped. I've been building baby quilts ever since. One more & I get to rest for now & work on other projects!:-)

    I have less than I had 5 months ago. I am not working right now so I have been finishing some of my UFO's. I have never counted tham because I really didn't want to know the exact number. Some things don't need to be counted.
