Anyway, folks always ask me, as I am sure they do you, "how long does it take to make a quilt?" A while ago, I started documenting my time in the sewing room - how much time I spent there and what I did while I was down there. Usually, I work on several projects at a time, so it is hard to say exactly how much time was spent on any one project, but this weekend, I made a baby quilt top, start to finish, without working on anything else at the same time. The amount of focus that took for me almost killed me!!
I certainly didn't need a new project - I have plenty in progress right now - but I was perusing simple baby quilt photos online, just for kicks. I came across this photo:

|My block finishes at 10.5" with a 6.5" square and 2" squares & strips|
|Finished size (for now) 35" x 52"|
Either way, I can actually give someone an answer when they ask me how long it takes me to make a quilt top. This one is smaller than quilts I usually make, and with bigger pieces, so I'd say most of my quilt tops take longer, but this one took me 8.25 hrs. Not bad for a full day's "labor"!
