    Glacier Star Timelines

    Has anyone here actually made the glacier star pattern? and if so what is a realistic time frame for it? I just want to know if its going to be years in the making or if I tough it out will it only be a month or two.

    I have one started. In a single weekend, I cut all the fabric and sewed the first two units. If you work at it, you could easily do a unit in less than a week. I am working on the star part and I am OCD about seams matching up which is taking me a lot longer. I have half of them done and haven't touched the pattern for a couple of months. I've got to get back at it.

    I have the pattern, but need to either buy a kit, or start on gathering fabrics. Such decisions on colors, etc.

    It all depends on how much time you spend on it each day. If you work at a good pace it will be months rather than years. Are you making the wall hanging (60x60) or the queen size (90x90)? That will also determine how long it takes.

    Not on Glacier Star, but....my Amazin Star took about 2 months to piece.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    Heirlooms like that take the time they take.
    If you were in a hurry you'd be at the department store buying a blanket

    Kalama, you are certainly correct. Picking fabric took 2 months, cutting and sorting took almost a week. And quilting? My guess is at least a month.

    I have completed one. It is my most favorite quilt I have ever done and I've made over 100. I took a class that met once a month and finished it in 6 months. The class assigned certain parts to get done that month and started a new part the next month. It was a great way to stay motivated and I figured I needed to be prepared for class each time. It hangs in my brothers entry way.
