    Are you a slow quilter/sewer? Or a fast one?

    I was up super duper late last nite working on the quilt, yet it seems like I didn't hardly get anything done! It's very discouraging. :(

    This quilt is never going to get done. *sigh*

    I tend to agonize over little details... rrrriiiiiiippppp and do it over (hopefully *right* the next time)!! So, I'd say I'm a slow quilter. Although, I've been getting them done faster these days... practice helps!

    I usually take my time. I sew and quilt in steps:
    1st Day: Cut out all pattern pieces
    2nd Day: Cut all fabric
    3rd Day: Sew it all together

    It seems easier for me to take these steps. I get a lot more done. I think anyway! :lol: :lol:

    Don't worry how long it takes you, I know that cutting, preparation and the first few pieces going together takes forever until you have some bigger pieces. I know hand quilting seemed to take me forever, and I did quilt square by square so I was able to take the quilting with me. Both my mother, mother-in-law and then my husband all needed to be in the hospital for long periods and went to the clinic for frequent treatments so I quilted all the times when visiting or waiting. I know both mothers had surgery that lasted 8-12 hours so the quilting was a great time killer.

    I start out slow with the planning and cutting, when it comes time to sew, I kick in to high gear until I get to the borders and then the QADD kicks in and everything slows to a crawl!!!(if not a complete stop)

    I tell ya, that is me!!!!!
    I hate to cut, I like to plan and buy fabric...but I hate to cut, just seems too tedious.
    Then I sew like a mad woman, get the borders on and then come to a quick halt!!! QADD!!!!
    My WIP are piling up! Arrgh!!!
    I don't get much time to sew (would have more if I would stay off of here) but need to get more organized and have been trying to do that thanks to the inspiration of all the talented people here.
