    Re: Terrible Problem!!

    I alternate between "Have to" projects, and "Want to" projects.
    I finish the "have to"s so I can do a "want to"
    Truth be told, I'm not happy unless I have a couple of projects in the making. Some [binding] require more patience, so I do those on the weekends. Mindless piecing, I do about an hour at a time, after work. I love comming home, and just stitching pieces.

          At this time, I have only three completed tops waiting to be quilted.
          Furiously quilting a queen size quilt.
          One quilt - half pieced.

          I have made about 74 quilts in four years (will be 76 by the end of this year). I guess it is okay to have a few works in progress.

            Re: Terrible Problem!!

            After struggling with finishing decades-old UFOs, I have had to discipline myself to work on no more than two projects at any one time. I have a long-term applique project that I work on while watching TV. That one may take me years. I also work on a machine pieced and quilted one at the same time. I take that one all the way to binding before I let myself start another. I got bogged down big time when I lost focus and when I let myself start new stuff before finishing the old. It's SUCH a temptation, however. So many fabrics...so little time!

              Sometimes, though, a project just doesn't go right, or I get bogged down. That is when I have to try really hard to keep myself from starting on something new, and put the troublesome one aside. The thrill of making that first block, especially if it's a new one to me, it's like a drug. Quilter's cocaine.
              And I am easily distracted. Not good.

                    This is an illness I also have; could I have caught it here??? It's gotten so bad that I'm kind of embarrassed when my FHP (fabric hiding places) are discovered. If I can live long enough to use all of the material I've collected, Guinness Book of Records will have a special place for the oldest person in the world. That'll be me, and I'll probably have lots of company!

                        I make myself have no more than 3 projects started at one time, but I have fabric for a zillion. I love fabric. There is nothing more relaxing or more fun to me than shopping for fabric, well maybe sewing the label on a finished item. I too have fabric in every empty spot I can find, oddly enough my DH supports and enables this addiction. Welcome to quilting.

                            Me too. I've really cut waaay down on buying fabric, and am working hard on finishing my PHDs. I've got some quilted and waiting for the binding. My quilting bee decided to stop making anything for a while and concentrate on getting the PHDs completed. I'm trying so hard not to think about what my next project will be. For me the fun part is picking the pattern and the fabric for that pattern. But I'm trying really really hard not to think about it.

                              What's a PhD unless you're talking about a Doctor of Philosophy? Since you wrote it's what your quilting bee decided I'm guessing it's quilting related. Sorry if this is a dumb question.
