    For me it's really simple:
    Something started and not finished!

    I consider any Tops just sitting around waiting for batting/backing/binding as my UFO's...I usually don't start anything else until that particular top is done...So I have abt 6 tops sitting. What I did this wk was go thru and look them over and decided I lost total interest in certain tops...I'm on overload between crochet blankets and quilts have since moved onto doing wall hanging art quilts only. So I put several of my tops on ebay to sell and move them along.

    Me, too. Unquilted tops comprise my UFOs. If I counted projects I've contemplated -- such as fabric bagged together for a someday quilt -- I'd be so overwhelmed, I'd probably just quit. I'm overwhelmed, as in haunted, enough by the unquilted tops -- about 10 of them!

    I agree. I have at least three projects worth of fabric that is not cut because a pattern has not been decided on, but I'm not counting those as UFOs. I'm only counting the one quilt top that is half made as a UFO.

    I also agree with the first scenario; to me the 2nd would fall in the bucket list category; not that list for me is very long. I still have to get all my real ufo's together to know exactly how many I do have; i'm sure TOO many!

    I agree with the first scenario too. The want to do list is longish but they may never happen either.

    I do currently have about 5ish UFOs. But who's counting????
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    I count anything I have cut but have not sewn on in the last 24 hours as a UFO. If I have sewn on it in the last 24 hour it is a WIP.
    A quilt is finished when it is 100% done and has a label.

    Wow. What a great thread. It's amazing to read the different definition we all have of our UFOs. To me a UFO is a top that is pieced and complete, but it still needs to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. But after reading this thread I may have to redefine my UFOs...... I can honestly say that I don't have any UFOs by my previously mentioned definition, however I do have 7 WIP currently. 7 quilt tops that are sandwiched, quilted, and just waiting for bindings.
    To many quilts, not enough wine.

    Ooooh, I like this idea!

    I have no UFO's waiting for me but have many PHD's (project half done). I feel very refined and it feels like I am accomplishing something if I use the term PHD. LOL!
