    Well, I've been accussed of quilting and sewing at warp speed, and called the energizer bunny too :lol: :lol: , so I guess I sew fast!

    When I put my mind to do something, I stick with it until it is done. I don't know how I am so fast because I am soooo picky and and perfectionist.

    It takes me a pretty long time mainly because I cut out and sew all the patterns together using construction paper first to be sure I have the measurements correct. That takes quite a bit of time. Once I am sure, it goes a lot faster.

    Usually months for me since I hand quilt, But I can , given the right circumstances, make the top of a bedsize quilt in a weekend. Doesnt happen very often but it can happen.

    Depending on size, just cutting, sewing a top- say 60'' square, if it isn't a confusing pattern, 2 days. to hand quilt it and bind it, another 2 weeks if on a deadline and no interruptions. That is besides working a full time job. interruptions add another week or 2. The hand quilting is plain, nothing fancy yet. I plan to learn that soon too. Larger add another week. :lol:

    I don't really know how long a quilt takes, start to finish - but I average about 2 twin-size quilts a year, with breaks for other projects and of course that pesky work that eats up so much time. I recently did one from a 24-hour quilt book that only took me a month LOL

    It seems when I try to plan a quilt and go shopping for material I get side tracked and come home with other material for a future project. It is really frustrating to me. I like to do one thing at a time or maybe two. This site isn't helping me, I get so many ideas and there isn't enough time to do all I'd like to. Right now I'm hand quilting a baby girl quilt, sewing a strip quilt and trying to decide on how to do another baby boy quilt. I'm on a roll but ever now and then I just come to a halt and do nothing for a while.

    I am very sloooooow :lol: I agonize over details, and find myself ripping out seams frequently.......reading and re-re-re-reading instructions :lol: Quilting is my hobby and I do enjoy every aspect but the cutting... I still go very slow to make sure that I am accurate :roll: :D
