    Due to my lack of space, I can be setup to sew or to quilt, but not both at the same time. So I do exactly what you outline. I cut a bunch of stuff (making my own "kits"), I sew assembly line when I am set up for sewing, quilt when I can.

    I think this is a great idea. Especially since I also can either sew or quilt and I use my cutting table to hold the blocks I'm piecing. I may try this on the weekend. Doesn't lend itself so much to paper piecing though (or does it?) and I have several paper piecing patterns I would like to try.

    Sunni, don't forget Westminster is Feb. 11 and 12.

    I was involved with 30+ quilters from Alex Anderson's MB after 9-11 in making rag quilts. We delivered over 600 quilts to NYC Fire Co's and Police Depts. by the middle of December 2001. So I guess I can say yes, did that.
    I have to give credit to Olfa for all their help also......They were wonderful!
    Ellen......I'm gonna go play now

    Nooooo!!!! I couldn't keep track of everything. I have two quilts and two wallhangings going, and already mixed up fabrics!...or I should say "borrowed" from one project for another.

    for quilts, not so much. Back in the day when i was sewing for my kids I would spend a day or two cutting out multiple dresses/shorts/pants in the needed sizes. I got real good at adapting patterns for multiple sizes, too. I would then sew "unit style" like you would in a factory. Wasn't quite as much fun but I got a lot done.

    I keep several projects going at the same time, and in different stages. I need to change up tasks, as I don't want my body to rebel to badly...
    Try your idea to see if it works for you! You'll have the experience to know to continue that way, or do something a bit different~

    Never done more than one quilt at a time but do sewing marathons every Sunday. Just early am and sew till time to go to bed. That's how I get alot done.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.
