    It depends on the quilt. I've done some where I could piece the top in a couple of days and then I did a PPd top that took 4 hours just to do one block.

    Your spider web quilt is gorgeous. I know it takes a long time, but, do it as you get more scraps. I make 4 and 9-patches as I'm working on another project. It's amazing how fast they stack up....and eventually be used in a scrappy quilt.

    some quilts have gone together quickly--a long weekend, or a week...others have been years in the works...just depends. at all times i have at least half a dozen in various stages of completion. sometimes something exciting happens and i will have 3 or 4 suddenly coming together at once...like a 4=course meal ... all done at once :thumbup:

    Sometimes when I get frustrated or in too big of a hurry, I just lay it aside and work on something else until I get calmed down. What you have done so far is beautiful and would love to see you finish it and show us all on here. I think/know you can do it. Set an allotted time each day or even a week to work on it if it gets too frustrating.

    I really like it so far. After I do a quilt with a lot of pieces or a difficult pattern, I like to take time off on some easy ones so I can enjoy the process again. Stick with it, it's going to be well worth it.

    It is super cool, if that is any consolation! My krazy quilt was supposed to take a day, it took almost three months!

    When I pp I time myself with each block, then challagr myself to beat my own time. BTW I love that block. I think I try that with my scraps.

    Well, look at all the pieces of fabric you have sewn down...whew!!! That's a LOT!!! No wonder it is taking time. If you counted cutting out exact pieces and sewing that many blocks, I'm sure it would come close to the same time-wise.

    It depends on the pattern and the size. Queens--of course take longer. I have had baby quilts go together in 2 days...Bargellos on the other hand--who knows!

    I looked at Bonnie Hunter's website for this pattern and I think yours is, by FAR, the most beautiful with the black as the offset color, but then, I'm not a fan of pink at all (right CJOMomma??). I think your quite is stunning!!!

    I did the same spider web pattern last year from scraps and pieced it by hand ended up with a double seemed to go on forever but took about 3months and then of course hand quilted it

    I've only kept time on one quilt. It was a charity quilt for my DD Bible Study. The quilt was a reg size with applique blocks. It took me from start to end 40 hours. That inclued the quilting and binding.
    I like your spider web, it's on my list. I did not know it was PPed. The one I'm doing is string piecing. I like the dark in the center. My friend is doing one with white in the center. I like the dark better.
