don't "love" to but borders on either.  Those LOOOOONG seams are soooo verrrrrry borrrrrrring!!!


I don't use them. I found I always messed them up and it made the quilt wavy. I didn't need the extra hassle. I make mine edge to edge.  ¯\_(?)_/¯ Hey, I figure we all get to choose our own way! I'm with you!

I on the other hand feel almost physical discomfort leaving something before it is completed, even if I don't like it. 

I can leave most things unfinished or a piece held by the needle in the machine but I was trained that you ALWAYS make the bed!!  Even leaving a hotel room I fluff the bedding so it looks sloppily made but not in bunches and hanging off the end or pulled to one side!  NOPE

Probably about 8-10, but that's down from around 40 from two years ago.  I've been mostly trying to get my UFO's under some sort of control for the last couple of years.

I need to finish more and start less.

Yes! :D 

I found a lady at a nearby nursing home (friend of a friend) who was willing to take fabric...but thse's super picky. Only quilt store fabric, no batting, nothing that's backing, nothing cut up...oh boy!
