From there, I actually timed myself. One hour, 45 minutes from stack of fabric to finished quilt top - pressing, cutting, piecing.
Add another 3 hours or so to piece a simple back (from fat quarters and left-over strips from the top), baste, quilt (serpentine), trim rounded corners, and make binding (bias). Then 2 hours to hand-bind. Total it all up, and I had a cheery baby quilt in under 7 hours. Yeah, I intentionally put the pedal to the metal on this one, but now at least I know what can be done.
This quilt is the first finish on my 2015 Finish-A-Long: Q3 list.
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday. This quilt was donated to 100 Quilts for Kids 2015.
