Those of you who check out my Flickr stream may have noticed this quilt top I posted back in the beginning of March:
This was day two, after which the entire "weekend" conceit promptly fell apart because not only do I hand-bind my quilts, on any given quilt there is a 50% chance that when I trim the binding to sew it together I will cut the angle the wrong way, so to be safe you have to add swearing, unpicking, & patching time in to the handsewing time.
Besides, I didn't really have time to be finishing another quilt in March, & then I didn't really feel much like finishing a quilt in April, & when I picked it back up in May I started carting it around as my during-ballet, waiting-for-kids project, & the going, it was slow.
Which is all to say, I don't think I got an accurate answer to my question of timing, but I finally finished it & I sure do like it.
As may be obvious, I basically floated three pillow tops on a field of my favorite cotton/linen blend.
And I think the folding up of the freshly-finished quilt at the end might just be the most satisfying part.
