In the past, I would start a quilt and work on it until it was finished, though partway through I would start to lose interest and my progress would slow. Now I work on a project for a short time, sometimes only getting through one step, then pack it up and start something else. With multiple projects in the works, I can rotate them and always be working on something fresh and new.
