P.I.G.S. question.....

Over at Jill's blog she is doing a weekly PIGS question. I have been reading along since she started but am just starting to answer. This week's question: This week, we will be discussing Leaders and Enders and whether you multitask when quilting. Do you work on one project at a time or are you better when you are juggling 2 or more?

I have to say, when I started quilting I did one project at a time and it seemed to take forever. Working and life seemed to take over when I got to a point that I just wasn't into doing right then. Since then, I have tons of UFO's and other things I'd like to start. I find that different days I'm in the mood to do different things.... so I tend to have different things available to work on. My Leaders and Enders project was going to be a 'Twinkle Twinkle' quilt for the kids... well, once that started it took over and so that was what I worked on. I also have my UFO list from the guild and have been plugging away at that as the mood strikes. It seems I was in a quilting mood last week as I got 2 quilts machine quilted and binding put on in the evenings=). I also am doing the Midget blocks... but the paper pieced one is holding me up a bit right now. I'm more in the mood for easy - non thinking sewing so the 6 patches and 9 patches are getting worked on now. I did set up a basket close to my sewing machine last month will extra HST and squares and triangles. I have been pulling from there as L&E's when finishing off some things - no real 'plan' for those but they will end up somewhere in a scrappy quilt in the future.

Go check out Jill's blog and see what other people have answered to her P.I.G.S. question this week.
