Fabric giveaway

If anyone missed out on this, I have teamed up with Celtic Fusion Fabrics to host a giveaway of a £20 worth of ANYTHING YOU CHOOSE from her shop and she will ship internationally.  Let me know how long you think it will take me to finish piecing and quilting Kaffe Fassett's Diagonal Madness quilt.  40 hours has got me this far.  I have to add four nine-patch sashing borders (already assembled and ready to attach), baste, quilt and bind.  You can have one guess on this blog and one on the Celtic Fusion Fabrics blog.  If you're reading this and your guess was under 48 hours, I'll let you have another guess to avoid unfair advantage to latecomers!

  2. Such a lovely quilt! I can't peg mine on the washing line anymore as a seagull "got" the last one, oh the perils of living at the seaside!
    I think it will take 56 hours to complete.

  6. It occurred to me that maybe you bought this and are slowly unpicking it to make it look hand made. Well that's the only way I could manage it. I have no idea how long it will take but I can't wait to see it in situ.

  10. 57 hours...I have no idea if I already guessed, what it was?!

  11. I'd think that the piecing was the easy part, so I'm guessing 100 hours total which includes the 40 already spent in piecing.

  13. Lynne,
    You are a huge disappointment to me. I maintain my original estimate. (I think it was 128). Experience tells me that there are still many opportunities for a Total Quilting Debacle. I will still win. Sorry to deflate your optimism. Oh...and drink more. It slows your progress but improves your outlook.

  14. It looks fab - my guess is 83 in total so another 43.

  15. I'm guessing 71 (if it was me it would take another 471!)

  16. Beautiful work. I think 20 more hours. Work fast! So a total of 60 hours.

  17. I'm going with 64 hours to account for the needle through the finger near the end - you know, when you're in the home stretch and are looking so fondly at the lovely that has emerged from your machine and don't notice that you've just fed your finger in with the boarder.

  18. I'm going with 71 hours total, just because I didn't see that # as I scrolled down. It was the 4 kids that made me guess on the high side as I KNOW what can happen when you try to do ANYTHING with children around. And I hope you don't hear "MOMMMMMM, he's touching me!!!!!!" for at least a day or so.

  19. I think this is my first visit to your blog - anyway, I'm guessing that your quilt is ALL FINISHED by now, even with four kids, and that it took you 52 hours! And the top is gorgeous!

  20. 73 hours, this includes quilting and binding.

  21. Okay, my new guess is 72 hours.
