Just to sew two blocks. I know that there are quite a few pieces. The first of the two took just over 4 hours. That includes
So now there are three blocks made up and 22 to go. So that means another 66 hours of piecing before I get to add the sashing.
And people wonder why you aren't keen when they ask "make me a quilt" (it's always a king size).
Just work out the labour charges ( I know sewing isn't a labour - I love my sewing machine). No one would pay what your time is worth. And that's not counting the cost of the fabrics, or the quilting time too.
I have recently taken a leaf out of a very good friends book and can say "No" without feeling guilty or making excuses. Don't get me wrong - I am happy to make for others, but now I choose what and when.
Unless it's for family and I haven't got quite that brave yet!
We have another Bank Holiday Weekend here in the UK and all of my lovelies are arriving to spend the extended weekend with us.
Have a great weekend wherever you are.
