photo1 (3)How did you start making quilts? How long does it take to make just one?

I started making the quilts at a point in my life where I needed to be comforted and quilts were a great way to do that..a big bear hug for myself! Each quilt can take somewhere between 40-60+ hours. After that I quit tracking. Plus I start a bunch, get sidetracked, then come back 6 months later to finish it. I worked on my debut quilt show for about a year and a half, but at fairly leisurely pace (at least compared to how much I usually work).

Joey’s quilt show “It’s A Celebration” opens at Cupcake Royale June 12th.
