This quilt took
approximately 510 hours to sew: that's 5 hours a day 6
days per week times approximately 17 weeks. At my
"Hourly Rate" for seamstress work, NO ONE COULD AFFORD
THIS QUILT!! The good news is that this isn't
going to be sold to anyone. The bad news?
Well, as you can see, this is on my long arm and if I've
made a mistake in the quilt at this point (a) it would
be more obvious because of the pattern for the piecing

This is part of the
purple/green batik king-sized quilt that I've been
working on for what seems (already) like a
month! There are only a quarter of the blocks
completed but I'm still plugging away!
Do you have those kinds of quilts? The kind that
seem to go on forever? Yup! We sure love
it, don't we? Sometimes it seems like we choose
the most complicated pattern and then are surprised
when its complicated (like this one)!
Ah, well-- tomorrow I get to go "back to work" as my
husband is off to his job. There are more blocks
to be made up for this gorgeous quilt!
