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?
