    By Kaye woods is supposed to take 6 hours. I have not been able to match that time yet. LOL. Maybe reading the pattern takes that long. I have done several now and they are great for Charity quilts. I even find my self putting 4-5 fabrics together for one when I think "that would be a good 6-hour quilt. Is it me or has anyone managed to finish it in 6 hours?????

    Nope. Six hour quilts and Quilt in a Day quilts usually take me a week.

    Can we see pics? I've not heard of it. Does that include cutting and binding time too??? It'd probably take me 12 hours ... I'm slow and my sewing time is shared with the laundry time and the pooch so I can only sew for short spans.

    Maybe its just the sewing time.. the time for cutting , pressing, etc not included.
    I consider myself a pretty fast sewer but can never really match their times. I must be fussing too much at one of the steps.

    I'd love to see a picture too. I'm not sure what the quilt looks like.

    I'm still trying to get the quilt in a day down. I guess if you don't eat, sleep or use the bathroom.... :roll:
