Strategic Planning

Strategic planning is the process of coming
up with a strategy to get something done.
There are all kinds of courses and flow charts
to teach you how
to successfully reach your goal.

My goal this week has been to get all three
store sample "quilting projects" done and over to the store before Saturday.

I didn't make a chart, 
contract a strategic planner,
or take a special training.

My strategy is:
1. sit down at the sewing machine,
2. put on an audio book, Smoking Seventeen by Janet Evanovich, and, 
3. as my friend Eileen says" Just run it through!"

And that's exactly what I've been doing.

The more I'm able to chain piece, the faster
it all goes together.

I work on all gazillion blocks at a time.
Actually, for this last project it's 32 blocks,
but it still seems like a lot. 

I do each step 32 times and then move on to the next.
Sew, trim, press and sew....

I'm working on a Schnibbles pattern,
by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
called "Oso", which is Spanish for bear,
using a new, yet unavailable line,
by Kate Spain called "Good Fortune".

I'll post a picture when I'm done,
which according to my strategic plan 
had better be soon.

Until Next Time-


  1. I love " chain piecing" or as I call it "speed piecing". Can't wait to see the quilts when done!
