I quilted last night and bound this this morning. I definitely could get one of these made from 4 or 6 fabrics done in less than a day. Total time spent on this was less than 8 hours, and i even tried a faux piped binding technique which I had never done before. I found the tutorial here . The white “piping” added a great touch to the quilt and it really was as simple as the tutorial makes it sound.
