About 6 months from start to finish... a week or so to cut and piece, and a couple of weeks to quilt and bind. And the time in between... putting off basting the quilt :)
I've gotten used to quilting large tops on my mom's longarm machine. But I knew I wanted to quilt this one with straight lines on my sewing machine, so that would mean basting. Turns out the largest tile area in my house is the master bathroom. After clearing out the rugs, the cat's bed and her food and water, there was JUST enough room (as long as I stepped on the quilt's edges to get around it).
