It took 7 weeks to get started on this quilt and 3 hours to cut and sew the top. Once the top was finished, it was the next quilt on the quilting machine. Sometimes I can get things done quickly. Not often, but sometimes. Now that it's ready for binding, I'm hoping one of my binding buddies will help me out. I took it to school yesterday and totally forgot to give it to my friend who also works at my high school. I got so involved with the lesson that I forgot to have my TA bring the pile of quilts over to her classroom until the bell was about to ring. Hopefully this one will be ready by Friday to gift.
