After a hectic week last week, and company through Tuesday, I was finally able to dig in and get some projects done. Such a great feeling! I decided to see how long it would take me, start to finish, to cut out, piece, and quilt a small quilt, about 50 x 50. Result? With hand stitching the binding to the back, I'm right at 6 hours.
Am I slow? Doesn't seem like it should take that long. But I'm still very slow at loading my quilts on the long arm, so I could probably reduce that by 30 minutes if I felt confident in that regard. But overall, it's a great way to spend a rainy day.
I had this little baby quilt already pieced and got it quilted. I love it! I am stepping out of my comfort zone and trying to mix and match colors that I wouldn't normally combine. Some little boy would love to tote this quilt around with him, I'm certain.
This is my start-to-finish quilt for a little girl. I put the Minkee backing on it and it's so soft. Love this one, too.
