On the first turn

Completed the top part of the first row of blocks and rolled up to do the bottom part.  I do have to say that it goes incredibly fast but I'm sure that's not the case for more detailed quilting.  I saw a video on YouTube of Sharon Schamber with her latest best of show quilt and she said there was 1500 hours of quilting in it, took her 4 years to complete it.  Just imagine... it would take 1 hour every single day for 4 years to do that.

It is surely a work of love and devotion that can never be repaid in monetary value.  Most of us aren't going to get rich by quilting, maybe a lucky few (luck has nothing to do with it).  There are many people that don't know the "value" that we put on our work and there are some who don't see value in it at all.
