When people ask me how long it takes to make a quilt, I give the usual, "Oh, it depends on the size, how detailed the pattern is and how intricate the quilting is." I find it's usually the piecing that takes the longest, but I now have a quilt where the quilting took about 10 times the amount of time that the piecing took. I'm now on the binding and I'll be sharing this quilt next week when it's my turn to host TGIFF!
Speaking of TGIFF!, our first Friday of OctoberQuest is up and running over at Better Off Thread. Janice has a gorgeous Over The Rainbow Mini Quilt to share and there's already a number of beautiful projects linked up from which to draw some inspiration! You are also more than welcome to link up one or more of your own finishes throughout the month of October and you'll be entered into a draw for one of two $50 gift certificates for Mad About Patchwork. Also, if you missed the announcement on Tuesday, Mad About Patchwork is also offering 10% off purchases for the month of October to TGIFF! participants - the code is TGIFF10.
Not that I'm eligible, but I'm eyeing this bundle of 13 fat quarters from Patty Young's Andalucia collection for Michael Miller...yummy!
This weekend is Thanksgiving in Canada, my favourite holiday. :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to enjoy some turkey if you are celebrating Thanksgiving too. Gobble Gobble!
