If you follow me on Instagram, maybe you saw a photo of my honest craft room earlier this week? A hot mess, for sure. I've been busy cutting and sewing and have not put a single thing away since the beginning of December. As I started to clean up, I noticed that the pile of quilts in progress contains more than I realized. I even woke up in the middle of the night and realized that I forgot about the Proverbial Quilt and another mystery block of the month I have going! It's a little out of control.

1. Foxtails quilt. This is from one of the kits I bought on Craftsy in 2014. I finished piecing it over the weekend. I am hoping to finish it up in the next two weeks for our school's auction. It doesn't need much, just time to get it all done.

2. 8th grade auction quilt. My friend, Jill, and I taught a group of 8th graders sewing this fall. For the school auction, they pieced this quilt top. On Monday, we basted it as a group. I will quilt it and then hand it off to Jill for binding.

3. Virtual Quilting Bee. This just needs the binding sewn. It's pretty small, too, so it shouldn't take much time. (Quilted by Laura Capello at Thread Up Studio – she does great work!)

4. This was one of the quilts for my book that won't be. I don't have a name for it, but I need to come up with one because I plan on releasing the pattern for it. It just needs to be squared and bound. (This one was quilted by Natalia Bonner – she did an amazing job!)

5. Speaking of Natalia….This quilt was made in a class I took with her this past fall. I want to add some large white borders and then it will be ready for quilting. It's a really cool pattern from her book, Modern One Block Quilts. (affiliate link)

6. This is my version of John Adams' Pacific Crest from his book Beyond Neutral. (affiliate link) I made this last summer in a class that John taught. He even pressed my half square triangles for me – what a guy! I am on the fence as to whether I am going to add some more solid aqua to increase the size or leave it as is.

7. Liberty feathers. Still a little bit to go, but I am anxious to finish this up. Liberty. Feathers.

8. Boxcar. Another kit purchase, I just started piecing this earlier this week. It's a fun one and should be pretty fast to sew up. This will go to our church carnival for raffling this summer.

9. Mustang (left) – also a kit purchase. This is all cut, but not sewn. Also slated for charity.

1o. On the right, another book quilt. This one I love, love, love, but am having a hard time going back to it right now. Some day.

There are also a couple other quilts for the book that are in progress, but I am not sure if I will finish them or not. One is out being quilted. And, realistically, if I am going to get all of these done in the next year, I will be sending more out.

What about you? Do you have a big pile of unfinished projects? Or are you a finish one before you start another type of quilter? I'd love to hear.
