A few blog posts ago, I mentioned that I have 3 UFO baby quilts and 2 new baby quilt starts. A couple of readers suggested that I have a Baby Quilt Marathon and get those little quilts done!
SEW … that germinated a few seeds and got me thinking … What would a Baby Quilt Marathon look like?
According Merriem-webster, one of the definitions of a marathon is an endurance contest. It can include an event, an activity or requiring concentrated effort.
Typically runninmarathons can be around 26 miles or 42 kilometres.
Now, I know that I can not sit at the sewing machine for 26 hours, let alone 42 hours … SEW … I decided that I can concentrate on these baby quilts for 26 hours … over the space of 2 weeks. That’s less than 2 hours a day. I can do that! And so can YOU!
SEW … are you going to join me? All you need to do is keep track of your hours and make a concentrated effort to work on baby quilts and get them done!
OK OK …. so you don’t have 5 baby quilts that you need to finish? … that’s OK … you can work on whatever project you want. But it has to be a concentrated effort to a goal of finishing the project.
What happens if you don’t sew for 26 hours in 15 days? Absolutely nothing. But you need to make an honest effort to do so.
When people run marathons all sorts of things happen. I did a half marathon several years ago (before my back became nasty about it) and I was SLOW!!! My son text me when I was about the 1/2 way mark and said he was finished!!! That made me a bit mad, but also made me determined to finish. Some people that were running didn’t finish … but at least they tried. That’s all that I will ask of you … that you try! 🙂
I won’t show you all 5 of the baby quilts, but I will show you one of the new starts … I have started to add borders.
