How long does it take to machine quilt a quilt it took 4 months to piece? Alot longer than one week, that's for sure. (It will take at least 3 weeks. I haven't even finished the stitch in the ditch.) However, I did take a little respite for my big quilt today. I am doing a machine quilting demo at Sew Much More in Austin on Saturday, so I need a sample. So, I just got out some odds and ends in blue and made one. It was so much fun to whip up something quick after the time and intensity of this big ole dresdan plate. I'll post pictures of it quilted later. So if you are in Austin, Tx on Saturday, come by and see me at Sew Much More from 2pm-4pm. I'd luv to see ya.
