    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

    Michele says:

    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.

    Karen M says:

    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.

    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!

    A hand-stitched quilt took me about 9 months to finish!

    Binks says:

    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.

    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.

    My last quilt took 9 months.

  26. 26

    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!

    Anita says:

    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…

    marjorie says:

    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.

    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 :)

    I have a quilt I started hand quilting 10 years ago that’s still not done yet. I think that’s my longest. I do hope to get it done one day.

    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!)

    Kasey says:

    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!

    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…

    The longest I have ever worked on a project is 2 years. It’s a pieced quilt that is a sampler.

    Leigh R. says:

    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!

    Kay says:

    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!

    Diane says:

    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.

    Nancy C. in Utah says:

    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…

  69. 69
    Garilyn says:

    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.

    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!

  73. 73
    Marg McCulloch says:

    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.

    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….”

  83. 83
    Lori says:

    I do receive Jackie’s newsletter and follow her blog.

  84. 84

    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.

    Elizabeth McDonald says:

    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.

  88. 88
    Diane W says:

    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.

    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.

  96. 96
    Christy says:

    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!

  97. 97
    Jill says:

    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.

    Ellen M. says:

    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!

  99. 99
    Mary says:

    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!

    Anya says:

    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!

    janita says:

    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.

    Flaun says:

    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.

    Linda H says:

    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.

    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.

    Marcia K says:

    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.

    Aunt Marti says:

    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!

    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.

    Rhonda H. says:

    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!

    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.

  154. 154

    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.

    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!

Currently, I’m working on a wedding quilt for my niece and it’s been 4 months.

    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! :)

  190. 190

    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!!

    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.

    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).

    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.

It has become one of my favorites!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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

    I still have a dress I started several years ago that needs to be finished up.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lynn W. Australia says:

    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.

    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.

    Mary Jo says:

    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.

    JulieG says:

    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. :-)

    Donna O says:

    My longest project took me 8 months of finish.

    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.,..

    SisterCraft says:

    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))))

    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)

    Mike Pearson says:

    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!

    Steph says:

    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. ;)

  429. 429
    Paula says:

    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 … ;-)

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Brenda McWhirter says:

    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.

    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!

    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.

  507. 507

    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.

    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:)

    Lauren says:

    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.

    Rhonda Desgranges says:

    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.

    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.
