How Long Did It Take?


I find thinking about a project to be an important part of the making of it. Sometimes it takes months for the idea of a quilt to stew in the back of my mind. It is hard to count that intangible part of the process when people ask, "how long did it take you make that quilt." Sometimes I just say a long time but when they look like they really need a time frame then I round out the physical hours that I put in.

Yeah, some of my stuff has been sitting around unfinished for 25+ years. Do you get to add that to the how-long-it-took time? Maybe if I were an artist like you, I would not be able to leave them undone. Thank goodness you finish them so we can enjoy them!
