I have a pattern and this basket of fabric.
Time passes by. I complete project #2 and #3 and assist on another gift.
Time passes by.
I’ve studied the pattern three times and have a copy on my phone on the event I run into a “quilting shopping emergency.”
First steps today.
Four hours of planning.
When I hit this “shredding” stage with the rotary cutter, it was time to quit.
But I am probably only 1/ 3 of the way towards completion of the planning stage.
Can you name these three stages of progress?
Thoughts? A. ____________ B. ____________ C. ____________
I am estimating another hour to finish this “part” up. Then I will need to cut out 30 rectangles to attach to the 2.5 inch squares in B and C. All this is a part of planning. The cutting. How many? Which patterns? A balance of colors. A balance of designs.
And always considering the reality of assembly . . .
where the project will take shape.
White on white.
Something to hold all these pieces together.
Searching for time.
Time to develop layout.
Time to study the layout.
Time to revise the plan.
Time to complete the accompanying tasks.
GASP! Revising during planning?
Where in your life are you re-visioning?
What events take more planning than than the execution?
Does your planning take two or three sessions before you can begin the task?
Does planning ultimately save you time?
Does your planning always require a written component?
