    Is it just that I am so slow or do any of you have a problem with those quilt in a day projects? I finally after about 3 yrs pulled a project out of the bag and started it. It is one of those quilt in a day patterns. Grandmother's Flower Garden. My goodness it took more than a day to cut it. Then each step in piecing the basket takes pressing, measuring and squaring. After the baskets are pieced I still have to hand applique all the flowers in the basket. So much for quilt in a day.

    I've been quilting for many years and I can't do the Quilt in a Day in one day. The very easy patterns (like Turning Twenty) can be done in a day. The bigger pieces and fewer of them go together fast.

    LOL It is the trade name. You could make a small top out of the log cabin pattern in one day but many of the other patterns take much longer and I think you have one of the more intensive ones. Very pretty pattern though.

    No, It is just a trade name takes me a day to make my mind up of what pattern to make and then a week reassuring myself that I can do it.

    Maybe it means a crib sized quilt in a day? :)

    Eleanor Burns has seminars where she teaches from her Quilt in A Day series of books, and a lot of her students do get tops done in a day. I've never been able to do that, and could only do it if a day had 1,392 hours in it!
