Well that was quick CDD! Smile Looks good.

 

Zoe the top of the quilt (as pictured here) does not take as long as the putting together and quilting the whole thing before sticking the binding on. Depends on the size of the quilt obviously - cot one's are quick and easy, double bed size can take ages! 

 

I think there are many quilters who have lovely tops made up but haven't got around to putting them together! I've got a double bed one that is tacked up ready for quilting, but it is huge and double sided, so effectively two quilts in one. I've lost the will to live with it at the moment, so it's stuck up on top of the shelf in my craft room! 

 

Will take some phots and put them up somewhere, sometime. Smile

I usually make a diagram of the pattern first before I cut out - as Squizzers says, it is putting it all together that takes the time.  I have no idea how many hours it takes as I just pick it up for an hour or two at night.  I think the blue one I made was on the go for 2 weeks but that was just an hour or two at night.  I don't think I would ever tackle a double bed size though - my hands wouldn't cope with the weight.  I like to have something small enough to be able to work on by hand while sitting in my armchair !!!  The final quilting though is done on the machine

 

I had already started the pink one before I knew it was going to be sold Squizzers - more snow is forecast so that is my job for the weekend Smile

I'm afraid all my quilts are made on the machine! I hate hand sewing! :blushing: Far to lazy for my own good, I'll admit! Big Grin
