If you’ve never participated in a Quiltathon, it’s basically just a time we set aside to sew as much as we can. We do everything we can possibly do ahead of time to free up our time for sewing.
The first one for 2017 will be January 5 – 8. The future dates are listed on the sidebar.
A reader commented a few weeks ago that for those who use Instagram, please tag your photos #Quiltathon and that will be a great way for everyone to see what all is accomplished during each month’s four day quilting/sewing marathon.
The biggest obstacle, which really isn’t an obstacle at all, is cooking so I try to get as much of that done ahead of time as I possibly can.
We have a bit over a week so this is a goo time to cook a little extra and stick some meals in the freezer. I plan to use some of my canned food. A few of things I have in jars are sweet & sour sauce for chicken, gumbo, and venison and gravy. I’m planning on fixing things like that for our meals. Cook a little rice and we’ll have meals in minutes!
Vince doesn’t go back to work til January 2 so I already have enough shirts ironed to get him through a couple of weeks so I won’t have to worry about ironing or laundry.
Think about what you can do that will free up more sewing time during the Quiltathon. Any good tips . . please share them here.
