    I have a thought this morning looking at all my "to finish" projects and wondered just how many UFO'S there are out there!
    Would any of you dare to say how many you have waiting for you? I have 6 as of today. Who has the most?????

    I plead the 5th! LOL

    Seriously, I don't like to call them UFOs. I guess it's a mental thing, I feel better calling them WIPs. I've been really good about finishing up the unfinished ones lately. I'm down to:
    2 - just need binding (one was an old project, one new)
    2 - need borders, sandwiching, quilting (one I don't like, hence the hesitation; the other is for me and I put aside to work on gifts)
    2 - tops need sandwiching, quilting (one I just completed, the other I need more FMQ practice to finish as I'd like to)
    1 - just needs quilting (when (if) I ever decide on a quilting pattern)

    I have a sheet from a legal pad full of them--I had to have some way to keep track of everything. :oops:

    Several just need to be bound and many I still need just that "right" piece of fabric to continue.

    Did I mention I have one in my purse, one in my car, and one in my lunchbox?? Never know when I have a few minutes here and there :lol:

    I no longer have any UFO's, but a certainly have a number of "to do" projects. I have the Picee O'Cake "A Walk in the Mountains" BOM waiting for me to get started. I inherited this one in 2001 when my sister lost her battle with colon cancer.

    As you tell us the number of UFOs/WIPs, I wd like to know why...did u get a request for something wanted by a certain date, get an idea suddenly from this bd./mag and want to start on it right away? I wonder if anyone simply gets bored with one and starts another that interests them, as I do...

    I'm afraid to even start a list......there's so many I would surely not even remember them all :-) I just love trying different projects and will many times start another and have several going at the same time........and let's not forget quilts awaiting binding..:-)....Today is going to be a productive day though - I do need to start 'ANOTHER' project...a Snowman quilt - it will be a Christmas gift for my sister..want to do this one because I am so anxious to see it done - I love fabric and can't get enough to play with at the same time!

    I made a list once ... and put each one on a little slip of paper and put in a jar. Then I made a deal with myself that I wouldn't start anything new unless I finished (or at least worked on) one of my UFO's and I'd pull one out of the jar. That did work for a while but soon fell by the wayside. I think I have to get back to it. I have about a dozen UFO's! Maybe more!

    if you count the quilt tops,blocks waiting to be sewn into a quilt,quilts needing binding and the ones currently cut and on my sewing table.
    Plus the ones that I have put in the bag and put on the shelf( baby quilt that I don't need right now, christmasquilt and placemats etc)

    Although I have not exactly counted all of them, I do have them gathered up and organized. The total count is probably a little overwhelming. I have two of the largest rubbermaid containers full of completed full, queen or king sized tops waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. I also have another full container of large lap, single and crib sized completed tops. Then there is another full sized container of quilt blocks. In addition, I have 25 or 30 (maybe just a few more) of co-ordinated finished blocks, with sashings and corner posts cut ready for assembly in individual shoe box sized containers. Some of those are in larger boxes that also include the binding and prepared backing. My goal a year ago was to finish all of these "piggies" for my quilt guild's anniversary challenge. I did finish 10 but am not quite there yet with the rest. This finish your projects challenge was so popular with my guild that we are doing it again this year. (I think I'll need to do it every year!)

    Too many!!

    I don't think I want to go there. I am refusing to count. though as I sit here on the computer I can turn my head and I see without getting up 12 of them. Some are WIPS, 2 will be finished today, two others will be finished this week. I have a box of UFO's in the garage. I am not going out there to count.

    i counted them 2-3 years ago and had 86, lol so i don't count anymore. I have finished some, have started some more, have given a few away. so who knows how many i have now :) I had fun when i started each and everyone of them, some i will finish, others i will give away and some will stay in the box for eternity. it is much more fun for me to start that new project then to finish an old one, but on occasion i do lol

    I have too many. Lots of finished tops waiting to be quilted, a couple of tops I may never finish and a boatload of kits waiting for me.

    I think it would be somewhere between 30 and 50 UFO/WOP's probably I should make a list and start crossing off one at a time. Somehow I think I would also be adding to the list so it won't change much !!

    I was thinking, OK I probably have about 10. And then I counted!!! OMG!!! I have 32!!! And that's just quilting projects! I also crochet and do woodcarving! And I really wanted to start a bargello this fall - but not until I finish a few of those UFOs!

    I am down to 36 (I think) I have completed 6 in the last 2 or 3 weeks. Feel pretty good about that and have decided that I will complete at least one quilt before I start another. That might help a little.

    I just started a new one yesterday. It is called "Night & Day" by Eleanor Burns--I just wanted to start something new since I just finished an old UFO.
