    So far, the longest was one started in 1979--I finally had it quilted in 2013.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    Not counting the first piecing that I ever did, because it will never get finished - I mean what 10 year old knows to sew all the seams the same? I'd have to say the paper pieced hexi quilt I've been working on for a few years now. It needs a few more hexis, but then comes the daunting task of hand quilting it. I may still change my mind on that ...
    K is for Karen .....................Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Congrats Ladies!!!!
    I would have to say my first quilt was the longest. All that cutting and sewing and I didn't really have a clue what I was doing. It was a king size quilt as you go reversible and it took me a year.

    Lets see, I bought the stuff about 6 years ago and finished the pattern size and it turned out beautifully. It was the mexican star and had an interesting technique. So I started to make a full size bed quilt using the same pattern. The pattern bom was only for a 45 X 45....so I guessed at the amount of fabric I needed. I cut a few strip sets out of all the fabrics and started sewing it together. I made a mistake sewing a wrong pattern within the quilt block. I have not gotten back to it as I am afraid that the mistake will cause a large hiccup in the quilt. I cannot just go out and buy matching fabric. So a good six years. I was making this originally for my parents, who upgraded to the next size bed....so It won't even fit their bed now if I get back to it.

    C'mon winnner winner chicken dinner. I need some good spendable quilters cash!
