    I was wondering this morning just how much quilting everyone is able to do. How many hours a week or per day are you able to spend on your passion? I know there is never enough time in the day for me to do what i want but i manage to sew more on the week-ends than any other time. How about you guys?

    For me, it depends on the weather. Hot & humid? I'm in sewing if possible. Freezing? Same story ;-)

    Some days I can sew most of the day other days life interrupts my fun.

    I'm able to sew 24/7
    Rarely these days have I been in the mood to sew - by machine or hand
    Have been sorting and cutting for 2 months, but no sewing.

    Not enough! lol

    Its broken up throughout the day - 20 min here, 30min there during naps or quiet time. After the kids go to bed, I can sometimes get a solid hour in. I'm working on something like "warm wishes", so I'm piecing strips for cutting...I've had to leave half sewn strips sitting on my machine for hours before I could get back to it lol.

    It depends on several things...my mood, everybody else's expectations on my time (some I can control, others not so much), how frustrated I've gotten with the project I'm working on at the moment/how excited I am about starting a new project, how much time I spend on this board getting new ideas or just enjoying everyone else's work...but in general at least a little while almost everyday, some days 2-3 hours or maybe even more on occasion.

    I spend as much time as I feel. My DH is great about fixing him something to eat if he gets hungry. I have to be in the sewing mood or I will spend all my time "unsewing".

    Luckily I have a DH that is understanding about my addiction to quilting so I sometimes spend as much as 10 hours a day in my quilting studio. I am really lucky, he helps with making dinner and keeping the kitchen clean.

    DH works 7 on 7 off. So every other week I can sew almost all I want. The other week I don't get as much time to sew, but manage to get some in most days.
