This all started on Instagram when I posted this picture:
I had just basted these three baby quilts and I had a goal to quilt and bind them in one night. Then came all the comments about how fast I am--I seem to get this comment a lot. I don't feel I'm particularly fast. I usually make simply pieced quilt and I machine stitch my binding so I think that accounts for a lot of the speediness. I'm certainly not one of these people that stay up late quilting! If I stay up past 11pm it's a late night!
Then I decided to video tape the third quilt I free motion quilted to see if I really was going that fast.....and apparently I was! I managed to quilt this 36" square quilt in less than 10 minutes! Here is the video proof.
I think everyone has a part of the quilting process that they're good at, or at least feel the most comfortable with, free motion quilting is mine. I did have someone ask if I've ever sewn over my finger and the answer is no. :) Not yet! I'm pretty aware of where my hands and needle are at all times, even if it doesn't look like it!
In case you were wondering, I did manage to finish quilting and binding all three quilt between the hours of 7pm-1030pm with a few breaks. I'll show you guys the finished quilts when I can get some day light pictures.
So, what's your quilty talent? Please share!
