    my WIPS are out of control

    I started gathering then up and getting backs ready for the quilt tops-oh my.this is the downstairs pile-there is more upstairs.this pile is 2 ft tall.9 queens,5 laps ,5 baby tops and about 30 runners and toppers.I must hoard WIPS,LOL.I am quilting them now until I run out of batting.I have another pile like this upstairs that I did not do the backs for yet.I feel embarrassed and liberated at the same time.I have spent a long time piecing without quilting this year-time to change that.I will post quilts as they are quilted.

    It's easy for those tops to sneak up on us. LOL Look at it this way, now you're ready for Christmas, birthdays, baby showers, etc. Looking forward to seeing them quilted.

    Can hardly wait to see your finishes. My pile is probably as big or biggeer than yours. I'm working slowly on mine, too.

    That's a GREAT stack of loving and caring tops. Consider backing tops with tops for a reversible quilt and cut the pile quickly. That's what I do and they are doublely wonderful.

    You can either think of them as work undone, or work half done!
    To me, they are standby quilts. If you need a quilt in a hurry, you have a stash on standby, already half (or 3 quarters) done.

    Can't wait to see the finished project. After about ten table runner tops I got nervous and figured I had better get them done. Can't wrap my head around having that many unfinished projects waiting to be quilted. I know that they will be super when you finish them. BrendaK

    I thought I was the only one who liked to make blocks and tops but put off finishing them. Good to know I have company.

    Look on the bright side, lots of quilting practice. Start on a top that is it not your favourite to get in your FMQ groove. Once you're in the groove, "pedal to the metal."

    Many of us are relating to your piles. I keep getting new ideas and think I HAVE to at least start them.

    I am only a bit ahead of you. I started my pile earlier this year and am making progress. I am down to three bed quilts and I sm caught up....then I will begin again. But we do have a couple of major holidays coming and I may have to have surgery in December so I sm really pushing myself...normal for me
