    I have never timed myself but after doing several, I feel I'm much faster..I love a finished binding that is hand sewn so it really doesn't matter to me!

    I can do a lap quilt in one night watching tv. Larger quilts take me from five to six hours.

    This is probably close to my estimate as well. Don't really pay much attention to how long it takes unless there is a major deadline. And it depends on how many interruptions and/or distractions.

    If I'm watching TV it will take twice as long as it should - I like to multi task!

    For a queen I would say 6-8 hours if I am watching TV, 5-6 if I am listening to the radio.

    I break mine into multiple sessions due to wrist problems but I try to enjoy the process too. It's so nice to have that warm quilt on my lap while working on it. It is the only time I get to "use" most of my quilts.

    About 3 hrs for the smaller one and 4hrs for a queen one. I so it while watching TV in the evening or while watching movies on TV on a weekend day.

    I will do 2 sides a night unless it is a small quilt, but, I sometimes think there are 6 cornors on the quilts.

    You are all faster than I am. Just did a double size quilt and sewed most evenings on it for about 5-6 days. I'm not usually in to much of a rush to get that part done. I like stitching the binding on.
