    If it's not started and only beating around in my head and on paper it doesn't count right? hehehe And if the fabric is still from straight off the bolt it doesn't count either right? 'cause I haven't really started it...

    Three quilts, one is currently having all of the stabilizer ripped out so it can go to the long armer, one is waiting for me to sew the long strips of sashing in, and the last is waiting for the last little bit of inspiration to bring it all together (That one is still blocks).

    *I want to make a blouse, I have the fabric, but haven't picked a pattern.
    *I'm planning a wall hanging art quilt, but I'm still working on drawing it, and don't have any fabric let alone any idea how big I want it to be.
    *I also am part of a Bali Batik of the month fat quarter club to grow my collection for a year to make three quilts, one for my mother, one for my sister, and someone else whom I haven't decided yet.
    *and lastly I'm merely considering the red ohio star quilt my mother said she wanted.
    *some day I hope to make an autograph quilt with Disney character's autographs, but I don't have enough signatures yet. (have to go and get more)
    But none of those last ones count, right? :lol:

    Hi, I have only about five UFO"s and am activitly working on three of them as they are to be hand quilted. I had several the first of the year and promised myself I had to finish two UFO"s then I could start a new project. It worked and I had something to look forward to, instead of getting bogged down with all of the other ones. Marge

    I am trying to count what I remember in my head. I think I have 7 quilts that I have started, some just need the backing and quilted. I also have some bags I am making for groceries. I have three of them cut out but haven't sewn them together as of yet. I have 2 made and I have to remember to leave them in my vehicle when I unload them, otherwise I forget to take them with me.

    I know I have tons of other projects, but honestly, I am afraid to go in my sewing room and look for them!!

    I will have to put all of them in one area and take a day to work on nothing but them. I used to do that with my mending. I took one day and that is what I focused on, but nowadays life is so hectic that it is hard to stay focused with everything else that needs to get done.

    two and a practice piece . . . one quilt I just started and it's hand applique blocks - one down and 23 more to go - and an afghan I started crocheting mid-winter for daughter that I need to move to the living room to work on while watching tv.

    The practice piece is a paper-pieced block (I can tell I won't be doin' more of it) that I'm going to practice free motion quilting on.

    I have two that I inherited from other people. I don't count them as mine...I didn't ask for them and I don't really like them. I'm pretty sure they won't ever get done :) When I first started quilting about 6 yrs. ago I promised myself I wouldn't start anything new until I'd finished what I started. So far, I'm holding to it. Most of the quilts I make are for people with deadlines involved...birthday or birth day, so I try to get them done in time. I think a lot of UFO's would stress me out too much. I know, I'm weird :?

    I only have 4, I really try not to get ahead, because I am the worst for not finishing what I start. I did just dew a lap quilt top yesterday for my guild community project, it was from their scraps though, so it did nothing for MY scrap bin lol

    I figured that if I hang the UFO's on hangers in the closet, they are out of sight and they don't bother me anymore. If I get to them, ok, if not that's ok too. If I need a quick gift, I'll just finish one of those since most of mine are finished tops. A couple have the batting hanging with them ready for backing and quilting. Maybe someday when I retire, ran out of exta $$'s, then I'll still have something to work on.
