#3 Regular Planning

By regular planning, you’ll be able to track the projects you already finished or projects that need to get done.

#4 Make Lists

Make a bucket list of projects that you want to start someday.

#5 Set a Realistic Time Frame

When planning how much time something is going to take you, add 30%. This will give you enough time to finish a quilt without rushing things.

#6 Menu Planning

If you know what you’re going to eat that day, you’ll have more time quilting. That’s why it’s recommended to make a weekly meal plan.

#7 Quick Clean Ups

Doing quick clean-ups around your quilting room can help you remember things you might already forget.

#8 Cut Out Multiple Projects At Once

If you have ideas for small projects, cut them out and prepare them all at one time. This will help you increase your productivity.

#9 Ready To Sew

By “ready to sew”, try to leave something ready to sew the next time you come into your quilting room. It can be some strip piecing, binding, or some half-square triangles.

#10 Ready To Take

Have a ready-to-take project if you’re going on a road trip, a ball game, or visiting a family. Ready-to-take project is a mini project that has mini charm squares and some templates. Throw this in your bag, so you’ll have something to do if you have spare time.
