  1. Not sure I dare confess! 7 yrs on Kaffe Fassett handkerchief quilt! I worked on it in fits and starts, put it away because I couldn’t work out the inset corners but then decided last year it was not going to defeat me! It is huge and for my 2 yr old boy – forever!
    thanks for the gorgeous giveaway

  2. Well officially I have to confess 2 years. I started the cutting for my son’s 100 Good Wishes Quilt in June 2010 and it has been waiting for the binding since last summer. But it is huge 116″ x 130″ and I’ve been finishing up the bindings on all my other quilts before I tackle this one. I’m working on the last one now so this one will get started soon.

  3. Oh my gosh. I am good at working on projects, putting them away for a while (years) and getting them out again when I have renewed interest. I have some projects that have been laying around for ten or more years. I have a project I inherited from my mother (she started it in the 60′s) that I have worked on in short spurts. Thanks to Jackie for the giveaway. Love the colors.

  4. I still haven’t finished the first quilt I started about ten years ago. As I don’t like it anymore I’m sure it’ll take another ten years to complete.

    Thank you for the chance of winning!

  5. The longest I worked on a project was 2 years .I was hand stitching a hexagon quilt . I thought I would never get done .

  6. That I’ve actually truly been working on, I would say I’m at 1 month in crocheting a blanket. It’s a sampler of different blocks, so I learn a new stitch each time, making it take a nit longer and requires more attention. I’m loving it.

  7. Love this fabric bundle. It takes me three – six months to handquilt a project…I have so many other projects on the go! Thanks for the chance!

  8. I am working (sporadicly) on a jungle animal appliqued quilt for my grandson. I have been working on it (sporadicly) for about a year. How embarrassing!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. I don’t really know the longest I have “worked” on a project but I know I have partially pieced tops in my closet that have been there for 5 years or more. Not a lot of work going on with them! I did recently finish one of the tops and wondered why I didn’t do that sooner.

  10. 4 years, on a knitted jacket. Small needles + fine yarn + garter stitch + non-standard construction = a long time. It spent a lot of time in timeout in my basket, to be fair! But it was worth it in the end – the finished jacket is one of my favourite sweaters.

    I haven’t been quilting long enough (a couple of months) to have any quilty horror stories…. yet!

  11. I have been quilting for approximately one year now, and the longest I have worked on a quilting project is about 6 months, and still going on…
    Thanks for the chance to win these gorgeous fabrics!

  12. This is a great line of fabric ..thank you. I don’t work too long on any project, because it is usually an order for someone. But there has been the odd time. I guess it would be a dresden that I appliqued on the background by hand years ago. It took me about 4 months. I do this all my machine now.

  13. I have a project that I started in my first quilt class back in 2008. It is still waiting to be finished. It’s a king sized batik with a million little half square triangles and it’s haunting me. Our guild has a challenge every year to finish UFO’s so I think it will be finished by next May. I hope :)

  14. We are speaking of quilted projects ONLY and not the cross-stitch I started back in the mid 80s? Good! I needed to clarify – in that case I do not have a WIP any older than 3 years (when I started quilting!)

  15. I’m still working on the Bonnie Hunter Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll mystery quilt from 2010. I at least got the top finished, but who knows when it will get quilted!

  16. I follow Jackie’s podcast. She does have a lot going on. This is a nice collection of fat quarters for a fun giveaway.

  17. My longest project is a hand quilting project. My grandmother did the top when she was 16. I started hand quilting it when I was 16. That was over 25 years ago. Maybe I will finish it before I turn 46. Maybe…

  18. Good question. Problem is I have no answer. I tend to work on a project, then work on something else, and then something else… Is anyone else like that?

  19. 1 year for a quilt. A lap quilt. It was my first one and I had to re do the binding 3 times, because I just couldn’t get it right. I’m happy to say I learned a lot since then. Love those fabrics!

  20. I have a WIP that I have been working on for about three years. I usually only work on it when I have long car trips, but it’s fun.

  21. Well my longest project was not a quilting one, it was a cross stitch sampler that I did a bit on occasionally but never got round to finishing. I know how long it took because on the graph I had plotted the date and my maiden name. It was started in 1989 when I was single and finished in 2006 when I was married and took a total of 17 years!

  22. Please enter me in the giveaway! I enjoyed both sites! I love to sew, quilt etc. The longest I ever worked continuously on one project I can’t remember because always have to stop and do something else..

  23. I have to confess to starting a quilt in 1999 and not finishing it until 2003! I was rather busy! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  24. I am answering this as the largest number of hours I worked on a project and that would be the king size quilt I made my daughter out of her wedding reception linens with both machine and hand embroidery as the quilting.

  25. Oh I love Summerlove. It is the prettiest! I am currently quilting a flannel blanket I made 4 years ago when my daughter was 2. Luckily it’s quite large and will fit her full size bed! And she still likes the fabric!

  26. Without stopping and making it a UFO, three years from start to finish for my Baltimore Album. It was worth it!

  27. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway! I’ve been working on a 1930s handpieced hexagon baby quilt for a few years now, off and on (mostly while I was traveling). Finally getting ready to quilt it…excited!

  28. I usually work on sveral things at one time, but the longest I have ever worke on one ingle quilt top was three days. I am done with it but wiating on the backing and batting from my friend. The I will baste and quilt it.

  29. Sheesh my spelling was atrocious! Too much of a hurry, lol.
    I am a friend on FB. :) Thanks forthe giveaway.

  30. Beautiful material. One of these days I am going to be a winner. The best thing I ever did was join this blog. I just love it. I will now go and visit your friend.

  31. longest I’ve ever worked on a project … oh, about 5-6 years … a basic flannel patchwork that I sewed so sloppy the 1st time and then it took me forever to get motivated to pull it apart and do over … but it is done! thanks for the chance.

  32. Well, I started quilting in March of 2008. In August of the same year, I fell in love with a quilt I had seen in one of the quilt shops I visit for special thing only, because it is over an hours drive. Because they had put together kits for this particular quilt, my hubby was able to surprise me with it a few days after I had seen it and started talking non stop about it. I started the quilt the very same day he gave it to me and it is on my sewing table right now, waiting only for the borders to be added. Hopefully next week! Soooo, the longest I have worked on a project is exactly four years next week…*hanging head in shame*. Thanks for a chance to win this beautiful quilting treasure and Good Luck everyone!!! Hugs…

  33. Yikes! I’m not sure the longest…probably the ones that are not done, which I’m thinking is probably 4-5 years! As for longest for a finished item, probably 2 years.

  34. Longest project, hmm … there’s that queen size quilt in the hoop right now that has been in progress for over 15 years, sad to say. It’s too hot right now to have it draped over me but I suppose I’ll get back to it come winter. Love the fabrics!

  35. Well my Ten Year Project was a sampler quilt that I started when I took my very first quilting class. After many changes and revisions (double bed had become a king size), it was finally completed and has been on the bed for a few years now.

  36. I’m not going to count those UFO’s that I consider myself still working on (one is ten years old) so the longest I’ve worked on one project is 14 months – it was a BOM. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your wonderful giveaway.

  37. I have a quilt that I call “The project from hell” that I’ve been working on, on and off, for a year. It’s the longest I’ve ever taken to complete something. You know what they say, “Slow and steady….”

  38. The longest unfinished project so far is a mystery quilt from a German Quilt magazine which is in storage for two years now. I’m lacking the inspiration to continue, but neither do I have any clue what to do with the pieces. So, let’s wait and see.

  39. I have been working on the Farmer’s Wife blocks for two years and only have about 12 blocks completed! Yikes!

  40. I haven’t been quilting long, so the longest I’ve worked on a quilt is about a year, I still haven’t finished my sister’s birthday quilt from last November, but I was bed-ridden for 6 weeks with a herniated disc, so that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  41. Love these colors and prints together — and the combo is unusual! My longest project was my first quilt, which I started just after my first children (twins) were born, and then put down and did not finish till just before my daughter went to college. I think it may be the record for the longest project, and I started and finished many other projects in the interim.

  42. I’m working on my very first quilt, so I guess it’s the only project that really counts so far. I’ve been at it for about 1 month now.

  43. It took me 9 months to finish the Super Mario Quilt I made for my husband. I just finished it up this month and started it last November. Check out my blog for pictures and info on the entire journey. It’s weird that it’s done, but I’m so happy we can use it now!

  44. I think Jackie has an amazing talent. I have been following her blog and watch what she is up to on facebook.
    This is a nice collection, sort of a vintage feel to them, but I like old things.
    The longest project I have worked on I am in the middle of right now. 1.5 inch hexagons, all hand sewn. I a maybe 1/3 of the way through. I started in March this year. I am a little tired of it at the moment, but I am a monogamous quilter and will keep plugging away. I feel the need for a break maybe to do some knitting, but it is way to hot to knit right now. Thanks for this give away.

  45. I’ve got a sampler quilt that I’ve been working on off and on for over 30 years. It’s a “quilt as you go” and I’m to the point of putting the blocks together. I had a hold up of a number of years because I couldn’t find the material that I’d put aside for the borders. It had been separated from the project in a move but has since been reunited with the blocks. My goal is to get more progress made this summer and hopefully get it finished. Right now, I’ll be happy if it’s finished by year end!!! LOL!!! Fabulous fat quarters, like this give away are always calling!!! Thanks Jackie and Amy!

  46. Well, I started a quilt back in college that still isn’t done, so that’s going on about 5 or 6 years. Really ought to put that back in the frame.

  47. I’m new to quilting so I haven’t worked on any quilts long, but I have a purse that I have been working on for at least a year – it’s giving me problems so I keep fighting with it, getting discouraged, setting it aside, etc. Maybe someday…! Thanks for the chance to win!

  48. I worked on a quilt for three years and it’s now officially a UFO! I think it was never meant to be and am sorry to admit that it’s horribly ugly, but I still can’t seem to get rid of it. These fat quarters are just lovely. They remind me of early summer before it got so extremely hot–as in 100 degrees. Whew!

  49. The longest I’ve worked on something is my Jane Stickle quilt…it’s been almost 4 1/2 years. Right now I’m working on the binding and my goal is to have it all finished in time for my guild’s exhibit due date of September 1st! Thank you to you and Jackie for the chance!

  50. I liked Canton Village on Facebook! They have such pretty fabrics, I’m really glad I found them and just in time for the giveaway…..yay

  51. My first Dear Jane quilt took me close to 5 years to complete – the whole thing is done by hand, piecing, quilting and binding.
    Would love to win.

  52. Hello. I am such a newbe so I have finished my projects the same day or the next day (hehe so far).I would really love to have these fabrics in my stash.

    Greetings from north-norway!!

  53. I spent 2 years making Di Ford ‘s Phebe quilt. It was the biggest quilt with the most pieces I’ve made. After the centre appliqué there were 17 rounds to the edge.

  54. my last bloggers festival quilt sat unfinished for seven years….. making that a forever UFO. I don’t think that counts for the longest you have ever ” worked” on a project. Mine sat a lot of days and years in a bag untouched. The people who make dear Jane quilts or something else that involves a lot of pieces and work little by little consistently over time probably qualify. The fabrics for the giveaway are lovely. I do not have any art gallery fabs in my stash as of yet. thank you for a chance to win.

  55. I have one sitting in my closet that has been 13 years in the making. I keep pulling it out and working on it for a little while, then putting it back. In my defense, I’m hand quilting it, but I haven’t done much hand quilting since I discovered machine quilting three years ago. I really should just bite the bullet and power through. It’s a beautiful triple Irish chain in blue, yellow and white.

  56. The longest I’ve worked on a project, and seen it through to the finish, is 18 months, but I plan to have some REALLY longterm projects finished yet this year. Thanks for this super giveaway – I adore “Summer Love” – and the chance to win.

  57. I have a tote I started at least 6 months ago. The fabric is all layed out, but for some reason I can’t seem to get it together. I think I just need to start over with a different color scheme. I am new to quilting and getting the colors right is my biggest obstacle.

  58. Ten months to finish a queen-sized quilt with lots of paper piecing for my sister’s 30th wedding anniversary. She received it a wee bit late! but loved it anyway!

  59. I already receive Canton Village Quilt Works newsletter and like them on fb.

  60. The perfect summer pick me up – these colors are yummy!! My first quilt was my longest – started in 1969 finished in 1994 :). For the first time ever, I entered a quilt show and it won an honorable mention!!

  61. Umm, I’m still working on it. It has been a year and a half already. It is a queen size hexagon quilt. All hand pieced and hand quilted. I’m getting there on the hand quilting.. down to the home stretch.. atleast I like to think I am. LOL. I will only have to move the quilt frame a few more times…. and then I can start a new project which I dream about daily. Okay lets be honest there are a few that are started, but I swore I would finish this one.

  62. I have been working on an embroidered double wedding ring off and on ~ mostly off ~ for about 10 years! Someday I will finish it!

  63. Love this collection..I have a log cabin quilt that I have, and am working on , for over 15 years…I am hand quilting it, and I am determined to finish that quilt this year…thanks for super giveaway

  64. Found finished quilt blocks from mynfirstvdays of quilting when cleaning out my fabric stash, some guess ou can say twenty years by the time i put them together as a quilt.

  65. I’m actually still working on a project that I started in February 2004 while I was in high school. I am hand quilting the first quilt that I made and I put it away for months sometimes and never touch it. Oh well.

  66. Probably my longest project was a Drunkards Path. I started it in 1998 for a friend’s birthday, finished it in 2006 for my son’s graduation quilt. Changed the name to Solomon’s Puzzle, because I didn’t think Drunkard’s Path was appropriate for a law school student!

  67. I found some started projects of my mother after she passed away in 2006 – I haven’t finished those yet…so between the two of us, I would say it’s been a very long time=)

  68. UFO’s take the longest when it comes to putting on boarders or how to assemble them. Some are still in the to do list for over 5 years Surprising that your taste can change when you go back to complete them.
    Plan is to move them out before having to stress over the change of heart.
    Already on FB Thanks for the chance to win.

    Quilt Long and Prosper

  69. I love the Canton Village Quilt Shop! She has the best kona solids price! That Art Gallery giveaway is amazing! I’d love the chance to add those into my Hexy MF project!

  70. I’m sitting at 2years and still not done. Sometimes you fizzle out and can’t stand a project. I’m at that point :/

  71. I really try to start and finish a project quickly. So I think the longest project that I have ever worked on took me 6 months. It was a quilt for my Dad and there was a ton of applique, which took forever!

  72. I guess the longest I’ve worked on one project is 6 years and counting ;>) I started a queen-size quilt and got to the hand-quilting stage, probably an area less than 2′ x 2′ is quilted, got pregnant with my first and switched to making baby stuff. 6 years, 3 kids, and many baby quilts later, that quilt is still not finished! Thanks for chance to win!

  73. I don’t have many projects under my belt, so the longest I’ve worked on something is the lap size quilt (my first!) I just finished. I hand tacked the binding all in one sitting, which took me like 8 hours. Doing it all at once was not my brightest move.

  74. I guess I spent about 2 years on my first large quilt, working on and off. I was ready to be done with it by the time I finished!

  75. I just finished a quilt that I started 3 years ago, but I know I have projects that I started way before that one. I’m sure they’ll get finished just as soon as I stop coming up with new ideas that take precedence. lol

  76. I have been working on this quilt for 2 years. I made the top and the back, basted it gave it to my son for Christmas 2010. Now I am finally quilting it now during the Olympics. Thanks for the giveaway!

  77. Well, I have a Christmas tree skirt that has been “in progress” for about 14 years (I am scared to cut the center circle out of it, so I just scrunch it around the tree – ha ha!). But I did actually “work” on a quilt for my niece for four months this year. Thanks for the chance to win this great prize!

  78. I’m still working on a few larger projects and I believe I’m near 18 months or so on the longest – a log-cabin crocheted afghan/quilt. Still in the middle of the BOM with Craftsy, which will be roughly a year. Hope to finish a bunch of things by the end of this year.

  79. It wasn’t continuous but it took 2-1/2 year to finish my king size quilt, that is now proudly being displayed on my bed.

  80. I have so many UFOs that were started soooo long ago, but they haven’t been worked on all that time, that is the problem! It takes me years to finish a quilt!

  81. if I’m only counting projects that are done and that I actually worked on continuously then the longest I spent was 7 months. I made a quilt for my sister and decided to hand quilt it, so that’s what took so long.

  82. Not sure if I qualify, but here goes as I love quilting and sewing. cheers from Australia

  83. LOL, I have a Irish Chain quilt top I did many, many years ago….still haven’t quilted it as I worry about all the open spaces to quilt! Wonderful giveaway!

  84. I’ve only been quilting two years but have been working on a quilt along I started just a few months after I started….so I have been working on it about a year and a half. Wonderful giveaway….thanks!!

  85. I spent about 3 years handquilting a midsize quilt. I got quite a lot done in the beginning, then put it aside when I ran into problems. Eventually I got it out and finished it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  86. I worked on a baby quilt for over two years. Now that I am expecting a little boy I finally finished it up!

  87. Not a quilt project, but I made a fully lined long wool coat that took me 2 years to finish. I think the biggest fear was cutting into the expensive wool and beautiful purple lining!

  88. I started a bowtie quilt in the early 1990s that I did not finish until the early 2000s. It was 2.5 inches wider at one end! But my mom loves that quilt.

  89. forgot to tell about longest project. not sure since I have so many ufos. I think oldest ufo is 12 years which I am going to get finished this year.

  90. The longest is 5 years – a queensize log cabin quilt that I decided to hand quilt…what was I thinking. On the plus side, when it was finally finished I won a 1st prize ribbon at my local quilt guild….great fabrics – I would love to win them. Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  91. I haven’t been quilting very long, but I do have a Christmas quilt from last fall that still needs backing and quilting…hmm, I should get on that!

  92. Hmmm. How long? Hmmmm I would say about a year. A quilt that had me guessing and second-guessing my fabric choices, but, in the end, it all worked out very well!

    Thanks for the giveaway, I love this fabric and have been eyeing it for weeks!

  93. The longest I have worked on a project wood have to be the Fall quilt that I started 10 years ago. It still needs to be quilted and have binding put on.

  94. The longest project was a twin sized quilt for my daughter. Started it a month before her 3rd birthday, it ended up being a gift for her 4th birthday. It was a Wall-E themed quilt of my own design.
    thanks for the giveaway! these would be great in a world quilt I am working on.

  95. Well, I signed up for the Farmer’s Wife class at my local quilt shop. It started in January and we are doing 10 blocks per month. So far, I’m caught up with the cutting, but slacking on the sewing so this will definitely take me longer than the 10 months expected. I’m encouraged tho, all the beautiful FW quilts on-line are beautiful!

  96. Wow! This is kind of embarrassing. I would say years…possibly about 10 years. I must say that I am much better now. I’m better at staying motivated by designing my own projects.

  97. I had one project waiting in the wings for 6 or so years before I finished it. I have one waiting on finishing that’s been around for 4 years.

    • im a newbie to quilting so everything takes mea ton of time im actually taking 2 quilting classes nowI have fallen in love with quilting. This is a great give away and I also singed up for your news letter and liked your facebook page!!!

  98. My very first quilt — I pieced the top but then I didn’t know what to do next so I put it away. A couple of years later I finally finished it and I love it! Since then I’ve been quilting non-stop. Thanks for the opportunity to win some Summer Love!

  99. Sewing wise, there is a quilt for my daughter I started when she was two that I never finished – it’s been 16 yrs. She got a little older and didn’t like the colors and it’s been sitting in my UFO storage crate. I’ve since made her a different quilt with colors of her choosing. Currently, I’m working on a wedding quilt for my niece and it’s been 4 months.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  100. Four years and counting, and I’ve only been sewing for 4 years! My very first project went a little awry, and I keep meaning to fix the mistake and finish, but other projects keep getting in the way (as they do).

  101. My very first quilt….pieced together simple squares, then put it away to raise kids. Got it out twenty-five years later to finish it for my son and his new wife! LOL
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  102. I always seem to have many quilts in all stages of incompleteness. So some take years to finish!

  103. I’m still relatively new to the sewing world (6 months in!) so I stick with somewhat manageable projects at this point. My most involved has been a market tote that I drafted my own pattern for my mom’s mothers day gift this year. It took my around 12 hours over the course of a week. My seam ripper and I began very close but I learned a ton and the bag was a hit! :)

  104. Gosh, embarassing, but I think my longest is heading up to almost 6 years and it’s not yet complete. Funny how you can fall out of love with something like that and yet it lingers in my sewing room. Beautiful fabrics, too!!

  105. I have mostly sewn clothes and they never take too long but I am just starting to get into quilting the last couple years and the longest I have spent on a project is five months.

  106. I think my longest is a celtic rose quilt I started ten years ago and is still in a bag. My daughter was getting married and so I was making it for them but it fell through and I just never had heart to go back to it. Maybe some day LOL. I love Pat Bravo’s fabric so would love to win..

  107. The longest project was a quilt for my granddaughter,. She wanted a basket ball themed quilt and I just couldnt get it together. I finally did after 3 years and she loves it . Love your giveaway

  108. I just started working on things so the longest is about 4 months on a simple quilt!

  109. So far the longest I’ve worked on a project would be my calendar wall hanging. I started the blocks in elementary school when my mom took me to a class to learn out to make sew. I found them a few weeks ago and finally finished it up. That’s over 14 years! haha

  110. Shortly after my husband and I got married. I had the wonderful idea to sew matching pajamas. This was 28 yrs ago. This summer I was cleaning out some boxes and guess what I found? Yup. All cut out and ready to sew. Even had the pins still in. LOL

  111. Let’s see, I have an Ocean Waves quilt that I started 20 years ago during one of the Winter Olympics. It’s 95 % quilted, but not quilt done.

  112. Liked page on facebook.
    The longest I worked on a quilt was 2 years. I have only been quilting for about that long. I took a quilting class so I could make a train quilt for my grandson. I designed the train quilt for my grandson with train cars that I embroidered. Life like looking train cars, not the kiddie train cars.

  113. i seldom work a quilt from start to finish like i did with my first pieces. my first 14 quilts averaged two weeks with a ‘rest’ between. it took me a year to make those for my family. now, my work on a piece slows way down as it gets heavier … let’s just say i’ve very few finishes.

  114. The longest has been 6 months. But, I have finished up a project or two that my mother started in her teens and twenties.

  115. I started a quilt when I was pregnant with my daughter and finished it just after she turned 7.

  116. I started a Christmas quilt for my mom almost 10 years ago. I had pieces cut and fabrics picked, but never finished it. Well last November I came across it when digging through some of my fabric bins. Sadly some of the extra fabrics I picked for it were missing, they were made into other projects. But I was lucky enough that I found colors that matched exactly at my LQS (which I didn’t think was going to happen because the colors were not traditional Christmas colors). I finished it up and gave it to her for Christmas (again).

  117. Let me see- oh, it must be the wedding quilt for my sister. Not sure how long she has been married. Let’s just say her daughter starts college in a few weeks. I guess that means it has been upwards of 18 years, lol!

  118. I’ve been working on a quilt for almost two years. Granted, I put it down and then pick it back up, but I’m having trouble finishing it.

  119. I’ve only been sewing for a couple of years, and I don’t have any of my original projects left unfinished, so I’d say maaaaybe 6 months is the longest I’ve worked on any one project.

  120. OH, boy. I have a quilt my mum started when she was pregnant with me. I took it up again at 16 and have worked on it a few times over the years. So, this unfinished top is almost 40! Yikes!

  121. I’ve been working on the Single Girl Quilt by Denyse Schmitd for a while now ~ think it’s been over 2 years. It’s complicated and really BIG. Just needs the border and then I’m giving it to a friend who does quilting to finish it up for me.

  122. I ‘ve been working on EPP tumbling blocks on/off (mostly off) for more years than I want to think about.

  123. Well, I have a Halloween Wall hanging that has been sitting in the bottom of my WIP basket for almost a full 2 years now, so I don’t know if that counts since I haven’t actually been working on it, but I should get it out one of these days and finish and be done with it.

  124. I started over 5 years ago on a blue and white trip around the world quilt. It sat for several years unfinished until recently. By the time I finished it, I didn’t even really like it. My tastes had changed. I finally finished it and quilted it with a rose patten with white thread. and a bright red binding. I added a little red heart appliqued on one corner and now I love it again. It has become one of my favorites!

  125. I have been “working” on a king size quilt for 2 years now. It has been on the back burner for a while now but I am set on finishing it this year!

  126. I’m have to admit that the longest project is still a project. I started quilting about 10 years ago, and my first quilt is still a wip. Love the Art Gallery Fabric, thanks for a chance to win it:)

  127. It took me over a year to finish a quilt for my son. Granted, part of that year was getting pregnant and having him :) I’ve worked on several large bed-sized quilts that have taken me 5ish months from start to finish. I have to peck out a few hours here and there.
    Thanks for the chance to win! Would love to build up a stash!

  128. I have a project I started about 3 years ago hopefully it will be finished this year :)

  129. OK this is really bad, I am with others who understand right? My very first project is not finished whew! that was almost painful to admit. Yes I have not finished the quilting on my very first quilt. It was started 7years ago. I have many other finished quilts and innumerable ufo’s since. Love piecing the top but really stink at quilting it. Must be like they say about teaching” those who can do those who can’t should not” I am definitely a should not Love Love Love Art Gallery Fabrics! Design,Color and the Texture oh my! What amazing things you are doing at Canton Village! I’m already following on fb

  130. A beautiful set of fat quarters!
    The longest I’ve worked on a project would be about 7 months, weekends and evenings. That going to work and taking care of the family always cuts into my sewing time ;o)
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  131. I have a project from 1999 – but not sure I am ever going to finish it…Actively – well, 4 years! Actively. Which turned out to be about once a month with my quilt gals. But now it is finished!

  132. I worked on a Kate Spain Central Park Quilt for my daughter’s big girl bed for over a year… finally I got shingles and was house bound for 2 weeks and got the whole thing done!

  133. I have some UFOs that have been around for years! I started an “All About Us” quilt for the grandkids about 5 years ago, featuring novelty fabrics that we were “into” at that time. Needless, to say they grew up and are into other things now. So the quilt, if I ever finish it, will just remind them what they liked when they were MUCH younger.

  134. I hand cut, hand pieced and hand quilted (with hand cut stencils) a double wedding ring quilt. I worked on it off and on for 15+ years. It’s been gifted to my husband as a thank-you for building me a gorgeous furniture-quality 3 rail quilt frame

  135. My longest project is still in progress – over 2 years. It’s a Pies & Tarts quilt designed by Australian designer Sue Daly of Busyfingers I’ve completed 100 English paper-pieced blocks, but still have 84 small “tarts” to complete–then the piecing and quilting and binding. This is looking like a 5-year project. (It is being pre-empted this year by my granddaughter’s graduation quilt.)

  136. For finished projects, two years.
    For what is still a UFO periodically taken out and worked upon, four years.
    Lovely fabrics from Jackie! Thanks for the giveaway.

  137. Well, I’m still working on a drunkard’s path, hand piecing, take a long project. I think it’s about 16 years now! I rotate take a longs.

  138. I still have a project that I get out from time to time that is 10 years old. But, all at once, continually? 3 months. Didn’t want to look at a jelly roll for a while.

  139. We already liked CVQW on FB as Marcia and Margaret – the butterfly avatar FB email mlwright29(at) hotmail(dot) com

  140. I worked for two years on my son’s queen sized quilt that I hand quilted. Thanks for the chance to win some of Pat’s beautiful fabric.

  141. I am a “start a new project before I finish an old one” gal, so I suspect I haven’t set my record for the longest I’ve worked on any one project. Not counting quilts waiting to be bound, the longest I’ve worked so far is four years on a Grandmother’s Garden EPP quilt. I am being very specific about the florals I’m using, and working just a bit at a time, so it’s taking ages, but that’s alright with me.

  142. I’ve been working on my nephew’s graduation quilt for about six months. I started it and then he moved his graduation date from December to May. I should have kept on with it but used it as an excuse to play with other fabric. I’m going to a day-treat on the 18th so my goal is to finish the top! Thanks for the chance to win!

  143. I have two quilt tops that I completed over 8 yrs. ago and still haven’t managed to get them quilted.:)

  144. I’d say the longest project I worked and just completed was a throw quilt for my husband. 5 years. It’ll be a Christmas gift for him this year (finally!). Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  145. I’ve been working on a T-shirt quilt for my best friend for about 6 years now! 2 young kids and fear of cutting up her beloved shirts have delayed me. I hope to finish it for Christmas this year!

  146. Oh boy, um…. since the project is STILL in the works…let’s see, it’s been about 12 years ago I started a very intricate applique quilt that has thousands of pieces. I am about 3/4′s the way through, but have put it away for awhile. I need to get it back out and finish it. My husband loves this quilt and said if I do nothing else, please finish this quilt. :) Thank you for the give away!

  147. Well, I started sewing in January, and the very first quilt I started is still not finished (but I’ve finished lots of other stuff!) so 7 months!

  148. I follow Judy! Thank you for the giveaway! Would love the opportunity to win! :)

  149. Well, my oldest child is 29. And, I have some things I started when she was a toddler. So, I guess that means the longest projects….at least 25 years and counting!

  150. Two years on baby quilts, just mailed them off today. They were my first quilting project. Came out beautiful. And I am happy I am finished

  151. Embarrassing question! LOL! I started on a quilt when I was expecting my son. He’s almost 27, and i finished it last year! Needless to say, I didn’t work on it all those years but kept it on a quilt rack folded just so and no one knew the difference! I finally decided when I joined a UFO group that this quilt would be one of the first to finish. All done after 26 years! LOL!

  152. Thank you for the giveaway, the longest I’ve worked on something was about six months. Its my sonsmemory quilt. I’ve been working on it as he grows out his clothes

  153. So far I think 6 months has been the longest a quilt has lain around unfinished, but I have a shirt that has been waiting about 2 years and a half completed vest that has been around for about 5…

  154. I tend to run into months on quilts but the longest project ever is a cross stitch wall hanging that’s still in progress. It’s going on 10 years now and the reason is it is a black cloth background and frustrating to work on .

  155. I have a log cabin quilt that I foundation paper-pieced about 6 years ago (when I started quilting). It still has the paper on it & needs a border. One day I’ll finish it. Thanks for the chance to win.

  156. I have a quilt that is still sitting in pieces and it is probably 8 years old and another that is waiting to be quilted that is 3 years old.. Mostly I finish as I go- I like to have the quilts completed within a year of their start- sometimes they are done in a few weeks other times, they are done in 6 -8 months depends on the difficulty and the amount of time I have to quilt.
    I really like Jackie’s blog . Thanks for hosting one of her very nice giveaways.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  157. I follow Jackie on facebook and on her blog.. She does have wonderful Kaffe and aboriginal fabrics- some really unique fabrics.
    Thanks for the chance to win such lovely fabrics.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  158. Such pretty colors, thanks for the chance to win! My longest project was a scrap quilt with a really intricate block. It took 5 months start to finish, but I love it! Unfortunately I have some WIPs that will be older than that if I ever get around to them…

  159. I’m about to start quilting, but the longest project I’ve workrd on is a crochet bed throw I started 40 years ago :(

  160. Well, I have projects that I started 20 years ago that I have just unearthed – and do hope to finish in the next few months! Those fat quarters are very pretty and I’d love to win them. Thanks!

  161. Well my first quilt still isn’t done and that’s about 6mths ago…it nearly is ..I’m just a bit scared about binding! Thanks for giveaway :)

  162. Super cute fabric! The longest it’s taken me to finish a project is about 9 years. I started a quilt when Sloan was 4 & it’s almost finished now! lol, just got busy & forgot about it.

  163. Do UFO’s count or just completed quilts? Seems when I finish quilts they go by faster as I don’t lost interest. However, I have a “completed” top that I need to make bigger as my son said it was too small for him…that’s going on 6 years :0

  164. I still have a dress I started several years ago that needs to be finished up. I made up the pattern (based off a vintage dress I love) and really didn’t know what I was doing – so I got stuck on the collar and the sleeves. But my grandmother (sewing whiz that she is) recently set me straight and I hope to have it done before end of summer…

  165. OMG its 27 years and I am just now getting to finish it. What makes it worse there are 2! One for each of my kids who are now 34 and 36

  166. Erg. Well. I think my oldest WIP is a sampler of handpieced star blocks in Christmassy fabrics. I’ve been promising my husband I’d finish it for him for…7 years or so? Ew, now I have a case of quilter guilt!

  167. I worked 20 years on a a crazy quilt and 32 years on a log cabin. I’ve gotten a little faster now, haha. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

  168. I’m sorry to say that have have several WIPs which have been in the works for several years. But when I work on something steady the longest has bee maybe a month.

  169. 10 years it took me to make my husbands wolf quilt! He loved this panel and bought it and ask me to make him a throw. At the time I didn’t know how to sew or have any idea what to do with a panel. It sat in a box until uncovered one day two years ago. Knowing now what to do I made it into the throw he always wanted, but still laughs about how long it took me.

  170. It’s not uncommon for projects to take me over a year to complete– mainly because I work on them a while, set them aside to work on a new project, and then get back to them occasionally.. I have so many WIP’s and UFO’s it’s ridiculous! :-) Thanks for the chance to win— very pretty fabric!! :-)

  171. I also like Canton Village Quilt Works on Facebook– thanks for the extra entries! :-)

  172. My longest quilting project is about 3 weeks. My longest project ever is my husband, 48 years and counting!

  173. My oldest UFO that I still work on is 14 years in the making. Hand piece Grandmothers Flower Garden, with 1 and half inch hexies, 4 rounds per flower, and green path for a king size quilt. About 3/4 for the flower rounds are completed, no longer like the colors of about half of them – I will keep working on this quilt (off and on) until it is finished. Have never given up on it, just keep getting side tracked by other quilts.

  174. The longest I worked on a project was just over 2 years. I complete most of the tops but when it comes to finishing I get stuck and just put it to the side.

  175. I recently found an almost completed birth sampler for my daughter – she is now 17. I plan to finish it by her 18th birthday.

  176. I worked on an embroidered quilt for about 10 months once. It did sit and languish for a while,so I probably can’t count the entire 10 mo as production time, but it involved a lot of hand work. It’s lovely to have it finished though! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  177. Two years with Dear Jane and still arrived to 30 blocks.Those blocks are too small and I try to do 4th every month.I hope to end up someday.

  178. It took me almost 3 years for me to complete an applique quilt for myself (and that is probably why it took so long!!) I must have completed 20 other gifts in that same time period!!

  179. My longest project i thought was my hand pieced, hand quilted quilt. I started last year and I’m still going. Then I remembered my Mum’s 50th birthday present, that I still haven’t finished and her 50th was two years ago :-(
    I’m a horrible daughter. I did however see up some fabric to cover the end of her lounge the other day, so I’m not all bad.

  180. Love the fabric! The longest I have worked on a quilt is a year, but I’ve only been quilting for 3 years. Thanks for the chance to win

  181. The longest would have to be about 14 years. Before my grandma died she asked if I would finish her afghan for her – at the time I was working on my own afghan so after I finished mine I tried to finish hers but just couldn’t catch on to her pattern. I tried working on it a couple times but just never could figure it out and would rip out what I had done. I finally got the afghan back out…it always seemed to be right on top…and tried again and figured out her pattern and finished it just days before the 14th anniversary of when she passed away.

  182. Love these fabrics. Have only been quilting for five years and have four unfinished projects but have completed 4 quilts.

  183. I think the longest I’ve worked on a quilt was probably 2-3 months. I am usually pretty focused and try to get them done quickly!

  184. I have sooo many UFO’s, I can’t tell you how long–does forever count?

  185. The longest I have worked on a project was my middle daughters quilt. Her and her husband changed their bed size twice after I started it. Boarder and another boarder were added.

  186. The longest I have worked on a quilt so far is 4 months but it still isn’t finished!

  187. Um, I recently came across a fair isle sweater that I started about 30 years ago and a tapestry cushion that’s probably 20 years old. I really like both projects and am determined to finish them within the next 5 years ;)

  188. The longest was 20 years, but in fairness I just put it aside and didn’t quilt it or bind it until 20 years after I had pieced the top.

  189. I’d love this beautiful fabric. The longest I’ve worked on a project is my Dear Jane Quilt. Started several years ago and the piecing has been finished – just need to get that big quilt quilted! Thanks

  190. I have some blocks I’ve had for 6 years just waiting for me to put them together. But….just recently I found a quilt top at my mom’s that my grandmother put together over 35 yrs ago. That needs to have borders so that will sit with my ufo pile until I decided what color.

  191. There is lots of projects that get set on the back burner and usually it is a cross stitch piece but I have one quit that I have been working on for over three years. I will get it done someday.

  192. Currently 7 months, not a sewing project though. It’s a ‘one square a day’ crochet blanket. 7 months down, 5 to go!

  193. My longest quilt project was about 4 years. On the flip side, I’ve finished a quilt in 2 days.

  194. 12+ years. I started a quilt over 12 years ago and then started working on it about 2 years ago… Finished the quilt top, took it to quilt it on a long arm at my LQS but forgot the thread and the my dog ate part of the quilt so until I figure out how to fix it, it is still a work in progress

  195. I’ve had a postage stamp top ready to quilt for 3 years. Thanks for the giveaway!
    Boppiesgirl at gmail dot com

  196. I have been collecting fabric for a quilt for about 6 months now. I am going to design it. its a big job for a new quilter.. I will check out the sale

  197. 8 years.
    I once read that Grandmother’s Flower Garden was the most unfinished quilt of all. Mine wasn’t going to be just another statistic. I kept plugging away and eight years later I had a hand pieced, hand quilted queen size beauty made with many of my own grandmother’s fabrics!

  198. Funny you should ask. I started a quilt two years ago and it kept getting put aside. I finally finished the top last week and hope to get it quilted next month. I have other projects waiting to be worked on that I began, but I can’t count them because they are nowhere near complete.

  199. Years! It took me about three years to make my son’s quilt. And I’ve been knitting one sock for about the same amount of time!

  200. Crocheting a blanket for a month and a half was probably my longest project.

  201. I have been working on a crocheted scarf for over a year now – I think I am going to pull it apart and start again in a simpler design.

  202. Hi! i want to participate in this contest! i started quilting like two months ago, so im new in this! But im sewing little squares with different tecniques to make at the end of the year a big blanket! im from Argentina and i hope to win!
    a Big hug form the southern country in the Americas!

  203. I am still working on one of the first quilts I ever made. It was started in a beginners quilt class 29 years ago. It is mostly hand pieced and I’m hand quilting it in a lap frame. I pull it out every winter and work on it when it’s cold and I need to be covered by a quilt. Maybe it will be done by the time I have grandchildren.

  204. thanks for this giveaway…i have a waiting list quilt that i should’ve’s for my sister…i hope i can finish it soon…^^

  205. ha! My first (and so far only) quilt started off crib sized, then I had to modify it to twin size because my son had outgrown the crib!

  206. I have a project that I started almost five years ago…I am not satisfied with it (top is done) and am still trying to figure out if I want to take it apart and do something else with it..Bargello Seasons. Other than that, I am a finisher!

  207. I have a problem with starting projects and getting 3 quarters of the way through and then slowing way, way down… so my quilt for me bed is on its second year. But, I have made quite a few quilts in between!

  208. And just liked you on Facebook! ;) Thanks for the giveaway chance! Love, love Art Gallery Fabric!!

  209. I started a Peter Rabbit cross stitch blanket 21 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I worked on it again when I was pregnant with my daughter. I am delivering her to college in two weeks. The blanket is still not done. Grandchildren?

  210. It’s hard to say, years to be honest. But I get these shop hop blocks and work on a few at a time, and then when I get close to getting them all done I push through and finish it off.

  211. I took 10 years to knit a pair of socks. Ran out of wool and so one toe is in a different color. And after a few rounds of being washed in warm water by DH, they’ve shrunk and are too small (how can I complain, because otherwise he’ll never do laundry again).

  212. I took 10 years to knit a pair of socks. Ran out of wool and so one toe is in a different color. And after a few rounds of being washed in warm water by DH, they’ve shrunk and are too small (how can I complain, because otherwise he’ll never do laundry again).

  213. Before I even knew one thing about making a quilt, I decided to make one for my baby son….that was 35 years ago, and it is still not finished…and, I doubt, will ever be! Oh, well!

  214. I usually get my sewing done proptly, but the laundry suffers. I do have a punchneedle going on 4 years. THANKS!

  215. I have a few projects that are close to a year old – and I keep starting new ones…. Thanks for the chance to win.

  216. Oh my face is red! I have a Pink cotquilt that I started 1982 and all I need to do is bind it! (I then had sons) However, my granny NEARly finished embroidering a quilt top in 1915 before her first baby interrupted things and THAT still isnt finished (I am too scared to touch it!)
    would LOVE to win the Art Gallery… thanks for the chance.

  217. My very first quilt took me forever to finish – I worked on it for 3 months, then when I was piecing it together none of the seams matched & it was such a disappointment that I then left it for a year before finally tackling it again. And now I’m quite fond of it, mismatched seams & all! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

  218. I started a mobile for my youngest daughter in 1987, then finished it for my granddaughter in 2006 – that makes it nineteen years!

  219. I love Jackie’s blog & the giveaways are always so desirable, I started quilting in 2001 & before I realised what I was getting myself into, began a Dresden Plate quilt using my Dad’s neckties for the dresden plates, it was well beyond my skills at the time but I have progressed to have it almost half quilted – everyone who sees it loves it, but I have it on my bed in winter (which it is is Australia now) in it’s unfinished state & can feel the safety pins holding it together thru the bedding every night. One day I will finish it but I keep getting side-tracked by Jackie’s wonderful ideas & links.

  220. I try not to keep track of my work but I do have my first sampler quilt that the top was started 20 some years ago but has not been quilted yet – would that count? I have another that was a BOM started 7 years ago – top done but not quilted yet – hmmm – seeing a pattern. But there is so much that I want to do! Thanks for the giveaway.

  221. A winding ways quilt and a New York beauty quilt : 2m50 square hand sewn. :18 years and the quilting by hand isn’t done yet.

  222. I started a Texas star quilt, sewing the ‘template cut” pieces by hand and finished about half of it and them about 7 years later I picked it up and sewed the rest by machine and finished it by handquilting which took another year.
    Thanks for the give away, Love these fabrics.

  223. Thanks for the giveaways. I’m always hoping to try something new. The longest project I’ve worked on was a pair of knitted socks. I finished one, and after three years, I still have the other one on the needles. Must get back to that soon. :-)

  224. How about 35 years and counting? A cross stitch I still love started in 1977. all it needs is a little more backstitching. I have been carrying it around for years intending to complete it. maybe soon.,..

  225. My longest project was the skirt that I started but didn’t like and it stayed for 2 years in the unfinished state. And then I went abroad for 4 years, and then came back home – and that skirt kept waiting for me loyally. It took me some more 4 years to get it finished to be worn for… just a month as it didn’t fit me perfectly. That made me turn the skirt into the most comfortable bag ever – and it served me for quite some time))))

  226. The longest I’ve ever worked on a project? Well, I received my sewing machine 2 years ago, and the first project I made, a quilt for my closest friend, is STILL not finished! I have the quilt top, backing and batting but it has not been basted or quilted. I hope this year it will be done for her birthday! (November)

  227. The last quilt took me about 5 months to finish, but I added up the hours and I probably spent nearly 75 hours actually working on it! Hand sewing hexagons!

  228. Hmmm… I’ve only been quilting for a couple of years, so I can’t compete with some of you! I have a NEARLY FINISHED quilt that I started almost exactly one year ago.

  229. The longest I’ve worked on one project, hm… a sewing project? I’ve got one that I’ve been working on since February or so… nothing really longer than that, but I haven’t been sewing all that long – so I’m sure I’ll get some lingering WIPs eventually.

    Come to think of it… I made a quilt for hubby and I, and I still haven’t gotten to clipping all the loose strings… and it’s been on our bed for over a year! I suppose that might qualify it (loosely!) as a WIP. ;)

  230. I don’t know exactly, but at least 3-4 years … Of course there are some UFOs that will be longer than that if they ever get done … ;-)

  231. the longest i’ve worked on one project…has to be my cottage quilt. started it in fall of 2001, and finished it in 2006. Yup, i think that’s it. it’s 4 patch, and hand quilted.

  232. I think my longest project was my double wedding ring which took my a year and a half. I dont like having outstanding projects but that was a slow pattern and i had a baby!

  233. I don’t think I have ever spent a long time on a project… weill maybe the one I am hand quilting, As I am only doing it in waiting rooms or while watching tv, I have been working on it for 4 months. Half way done!

  234. I’ve had a Halloween quilt in progress for oh …. more than 3 years. The saddest thing is I adore the fabric and would love to have it done but projects for everyone else always take priority over my own.

  235. I worked on a quilt for 4 months from start to finish. This was my first one so I don’t know if that was a long time or not. Those fabrics are so beautiful!

  236. Years. Definitely years. Doesn’t everyone have a project that they’ve put aside for “just a little while” to work on something else?

  237. I cross stitched a wall-hanging of all the State Birds, including the Bald Eagle. This took many months of stitching and it still hangs on my living room wall.
    Thanks for a chance to win.

  238. I bet alot of us groaned when we read your question. hehe. What? I have to admit it out in public. Like someone else said, UFO’s don’t really count, do they? Oh boy, I’m not sure on exactly but I think I have some that are probably 10 years old. I think it was about 9 months from start to quilted for one of my quilts.

    Thank you and CVQw for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.


  239. What gorgeous fabric! I already know what I’d use these for!

    Thank you and CVQW for a super giveaway and a chance to win some gorgeous fabric. I already recieve Jackie’s newsletter.


  240. 30 years. Grandmother’s Flower Garden. English Paper Piecing. Cut out in 1982. Finished piecing in 2012. Still need to quilt it – and anticipate doing that by hand. Goal: finish by July 4, 2013. Thanks for the giveaway!

  241. I’m a new quilter, currently I have five quilt tops that yet to finished. I plan to finish the first quilt top that I did last year before end of this year… almost a year. Thanks for the chance to win!

  242. I think the longest is a quilt that I started when my oldest was 2 and she is 20 now! I am marking it for hand quilting this summer!

  243. Lovely fabrics.
    My longest project was a queen sized quilt that I started in 2007 and finished in 2011 after undoing a great part of it

  244. There is one project still ongoing for a few years now. Tecnically my first never got finished

  245. The longest I have ever worked on a project is 2 years. I made an hand embroidered quilt for my daughter when she was an infant. Moms are awfully busy, I have proof.

  246. One week:) i cant stand long project hahaha will lose my interest if it’s taking too long

  247. I started making a quilt for my son when he was a little boy. It was the only one that I hand quilted. I finally got it finished when he graduated from High School ;-) Well there were a lot of distractions.

  248. Well, I am new to quilting but I finally finished the quilt top I started 8 years ago and am in the quilting stage. Why oh why did I start with a King size quilt. But I love it and it goes to my husband when it is done!! Thanks for the chance to win these beautiful fabrics!!!

  249. Has been working on a prodject for about 6 years. A paperpiecing and the pattern in the book was wrong – I had to make some new blocks by myself so it would fit together :-)

  250. My first quilt is still a work in progress several months later… I work on it a little bit here and there.

  251. I would say the longest I’ve worked on a project is about three’s a quilt I started a long time ago and still haven’t quilted!

  252. The longest project was a pair of pj’s for my son that I just finished in July that I started last year in July. So 12 months… Thankfully they fit still. (I’m new to quilting so I only have 1 quilt on the go that I started a few months ago.) Thanks for a chance to win! :)

  253. When I got married, all of the guests signed a quilt block and I stitched over their writing, hoping to make an heirloom quilt out of all the blocks. My husband and I celebrated out five year anniversary this year. I’m still working on this quilt project. I have it pieced together and all the stitching finished. It still needs batting, backing, and to be quilted. Hoping for it all to be done within the next five years.

  254. I’m still working on a crochet sampler block blanket. It’s been a couple of months already, and I still have some work to do.

  255. Well it’s still ongoing… I have been knitting a cardigan for 5 years, I’m on the sleeves now so it’s getting there, slowly, very slowly. Fingers crossed it will still fit me when it’s done!

  257. I worked on the piecing for Dear Jane for 4 years. I finished that part of it in January 2011. I still have not quilted it!!! I really want to do it justice and am waiting until I am proficient enough at my quilting to do that :*)

    Thanks for the chance to win the fabrics!

  258. i love these fabrics….they are lovely and would like to create something awesome with them…

  259. It’s still going on. I’m handquilting a fruit basket hand pieced quilt my GRANDMOTHER did in the 1930′s. Someday, it will be finished.

  260. Well, lets see… I started a quilt last summer that still needs to be sandwiched & quilted!! I’m just not sure how its going to fit on my small machine, I guess that’s why its been keeping me from finishing it.:)

  261. Ausgust 6th is a very good day for me its my first borns birthday so another wonderful suprise would be lovely and I might even make him a quiltn already a fb fan so news letter it is cheers Jackie

  262. I have been working on the 2010 block of the month since well of course January of 2010. With so many other projects,sometimes one gets set aside. I kept up in 2010 until October and then it just got away from me. Every once and a while I get started again and I hope to finish someday….soon?

  263. I already follow Canton Village Work on facebook, love it! I really like the FQ colors and already know a project they would look good in. As far as the longest project that is from a quilt class I took in about 1992, top is almost done just need borders then layered and quilted. Yes I am a procrastinator but enjoy the process, have done lots of baby quilts for charity and those were quilted on my DSM but large quilts I have never done on my DSM so I hesitate. Have done QOV quilts but they were quilted on a friends LA machine.

  264. Oh my goodness. I have WIPs that go back before I started blogging (3+ years). The most important WIP is a wedding quilt for my nephew that is 3 years in the making. Planning to have it done by October when they move into their first home!

  265. Love Art Gallery fabrics! I have so many projects that I have been working on long-term. One comes to mind that I started before I had children, and my oldest son is 17! Now, that is pitiful!

  266. The longest project I’ve worked on, sadly, was a tablerunner, I just kept putting it off and working a little here and there. I started in April and finally finished the first week of July, just in enough time to give it as a gift.

  267. I finally finished a quilt I had started YEARS before. If you count unfinished projects, I have a couple I started before that one!

  268. My first quilt took me five years to complete – queen sized sampler, hand quilted! I started it in 1992 and decided that at that rate I wouldn’t be able to finish many quilts in my lifetime! Fifteen years ago, I started with a mid-arm quilting machine, then a long-arm, and now a computerized Gammill-Statler long-arm system. Many quilts later, I’m so happy I did!

  269. I am still working on a log cabin quilt I started when I was about 22 years old and now am 52, I don’t care to do the math, but if I ever finish it, it will be great, I hope I win this lovely collection, it is beautiful.

  270. Love the colors!
    I recently spent 3 straight days working on 2 wedding present quilts ….. I would keep working till my dog would come and step on the sewing machine foot to let me know that it was time for a walk :)

  271. Have a quilt top that needs quilting which is a couple years old. Thanks for the chance to win the beautiful fabrics.

  272. Only 2 weeks, but I’m just learning so haven’t tried anything to hard yet :)

  273. as far as sewing goes not to long. I just started in December of last year. But it did take me about 5 months to finish a lap quilt.

  274. I am new to quilting and have started the BOM on Craftsy, but I only have one Jan block done so far.

  275. I’m actually not a quilter (yet) but found cvqw by chance and fell for the lovely fabrics and designs. The longest other project is repairing an old piece of furniture. I started it 8 years ago and still havn’t finished it. The funny thing is it’s only a days work left, then it’s done. But it’s been that way for a couple of years now. I just got bored of the project.

  276. I already follow cvqw blog. I believe that the day I win one of these fabric giveaways, that day I will become a quilter as well. Have to start with a small one for my little girl, though.

  277. I have a tote bag that I started over 6 months ago. I just can’t seem to get the block the way I want them.

  278. Oh my, do I have to say – When we moved, I found a sewing tote that had a baby quilt that I started and hadn’t finished and it was probably 15 years old. Usually I try to get things done though unless it is driving me crazy because I find then if I put it away and pick it up later I can finish it with no problem but the problem with that is picking it up later:)

    Love this fabric

    Thank you

  280. I’d have to say six years but then I have a coulple I made the tops over 12 years ago and still have not completed

  281. Started a Boston Commons quilt in 1987, just now doing the final hand quilting on the border.

  282. The longest thing I ever worked on was the first quilt I ever made, it was a simple charm square quilt in a twin size that I made for my oldest daughter. It took me about 6 weeks from start to finish and I made soooooo many mistakes because I really didn’t know what I was doing, but my daughter loved it and still keeps it on her bed to this day.

  283. I hate to admit it, but I have been working off & on for
    six years on a quilt for my husband. It is a pattern designed by me. He loves baseball, and the center block, which is 24″ x 18″. It is an applique of the “birds
    on the bat” of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.
    In the surrounding squares are the names of players, coaches, their #s, position played. Also are the years
    of world series wins, etc. I kind of got sidetracked with
    this, because I had a stroke. I had to relearn how to write, and hold a needle. I am just thankful that I can
    hold a needle again! One of these days, I hope to
    finsh it! Thanks for the chance to win.


  284. I am already a follower of Canton Village Quiltworks on
    FB, and I subscribe to their newsleter! thanks for the
    chance to win.


  285. My first quilt took 2 years from start to finish but was entirely done by hand-piecing and quilting!

  286. I’ve been embroidering a queen-size duvet for about 2.5 years and I’m only about half-done… it’s the longest project I’ve EVER worked on (aside from myself). :)

  287. Well I started a quilt in February that I am still working on, and I’m guessing I will be done in September. I sure prefer doing things in a more timely manner!

  288. I like Canton Village Quilt Works on FB, and thank you for the giveaway and coupon, I’m thinking of using some Art Gallery pure elements for a quilt along starting this month!

  289. I have a tablecloth that’s been sitting in my to do bin for at least 10 years. I’ll pull it out, think I should finish this up and then put it away. I wonder if I’ll ever get back in the mood. I also have quilt tops that are still patiently waiting to be quilted but the oldest is only 4 years old and I still intend to do them. Thanks.

  290. I’m currently learning how to sew, so everything I do takes a LONG time! :) bethfouche at hotmail dot com
