Speaking to a group last week, the question came up, “How long does it take you to make a quilt?”
To which I answered, “I make about a quilt a week.” This led to gasps in the audience, so I thought about it for a second or two and said, “Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but not much.”
Later on I figured out a quilt a week times forty years is only 2000 quilts. I’ve made at least that many probably more. There are factors that increase my output, like for the most part I send all hand quilting to the Amish or if I’m making pillows or bags, I make them in multiples.
I wonder how this week’s quilt, which is two sided, should count in the tally?

So then you were not only not exaggerating, but were actually being modest?!?
But more to my point, how did you decide that you have made at least 2000 quilts in your forty years and probably more?
It was simple math. I wish I had better records, but I don’t.
