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

    I made the crib-sized one several years ago. It went together fairly fast, but it was longer then 6 hours! Maybe if you sewed straight thru for 6 hours you could get a little one done but I really doubt it.

    quilt for fun grandma G
    My first quilt was made in a class when I had never used a rotory cutter. We made a Log Cabin. I made it in a single bed size in 5 hours. Top only, The teacher did not have us iron and I used 2- 1/2 inch wide strips. It was an Eleanor Burns pattern but we never read pattern the teacher just told us what to do and when. It was fun but you have to sew as fast as you can, It turned out great and I hand quilted it myself and put binding on by hand when I got home. I don't believe a full quilt totally done could even be done in a 24 hour day.

    No way could I do that. It takes me 6 hours just to pick out the fabric! Another 6 if I change my mind. :shock:

    These are two I haven't sold yet. So cute. You quilt as you go and both sides are identical. Kaye Woods teaches this class all over.
    These are kids quilts but you can make them in any fabric combinations and if you want them bigger, you keep adding side to side, top to bottom until you have the size you like.

    They also wash nicely. Since you are sewing the batting as you go with the fabric, it does not shift or bundle.

    a bit of trivia....

    many years ago I was the guest on Kaye Woods PBS TV show and the project was for her to teach me how to do the "6 Hour Quilt". It is my recollection that one can indeed do it if there are no interruptions during the process and you know exactly what is to be done and how to do it. You can't spend time answering the phone or taking care of other personal needs when the clock starts and the serger works perfectly. One would most likely need to have all the strips cut and work space in order before starting and might be able to work up to the 6 hour time frame. It is a really neat and easy quilt to do.
    It's a little like my "Quick-n-Easy, No Piecing" crib quilt I make. I had to time it one time for volunteer hours for the hospital where I donated them. . I did it completely in 3 hours which was really conservative on time. Four hours would have been better.
    So......it's like anything we do - the more we do the better and faster we become. BTW. That year I was able to do 100 for the hospital.

    Good for you. I love to read stories like this. I make them mostly for Project Linus and COoke's Children's and JPS hospital gets them. Thanks for sharing. I can do it faster but youa re right about interuptions. SO true...... Next time, I love my door and see. I took her class in Missouri two years ago and we finished one in 5 hours but not the binding and the kits were already cut. Love her work. She was at a PL convention giving us classes.

    Oh, Deb those are sooo cute. You sure know how to choose the right fabrics. You might have to teach me how to make the Six-Hour quilt. :)
