How Long Does it Take to Quilt a Quilt?

Double Wedding Ring QuiltGood Morning, Quilters!

As Quilters, what is the most common thing we are asked??–How long did it take you to make that?

I never have an answer…do YOU?

For Claire and Andy’s wedding quilt–a queen size, I did carefully account for all the time it took to quilt it…

It took 25 hours to quilt!–on a domestic sewing machine… (I estimated it would take 40 hours so I was happy with 25…)

The first 10 hours was on stabilizing and stitching in the ditch–we’ll take more about that next week!

What about YOU?  Have you ever added up the hours (we won’t even talk about dollars!)…to make a quilt?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Also, tell us if you are quilting on a domestic sewing machine, a mid-arm sewing machine or a long arm.
