Tortoise or Hare?

Ask me how long it's been since I started working on this piece and I won't be able to tell you because I haven't got the foggiest notion.  Funny how now that the holidays are through, I want to work on gifts and goodies where before it just didn't have much appeal.  So depending on your perspective, I'm either really far behind or shockingly far ahead.  What do you think?

The pattern, Crazy Jack, is from pieces from my heart and used one Pumpkins Gone Wild charm pack from Moda and came with the extra wide rick rack for the mouth.  I'm going to use it as a table topper, mainly because who knows how long it'd take me to make a hanging sleeve.  Speed is not my forte. 

Oh, I see the pattern copyright date now...2008.  Gulp.  Golly, it doesn't seem like it took quite that long to make.  Sigh.  Does anyone else quilt like they're a tortoise or are the rest of y'all like the hare?

I'm linking to FIUF from Crazy Mom Quilts.

Happy quilting, y'all!

P.S.  Don't forget to leave your comment on the Birthday Giveaway post if you'd like a chance at the tablerunner pattern and fabrics.  I'll pick a name on Monday the 9th.

  1. I'm definately a tortoise!!! Or it could be the fact that something new and funner always seems to cross paths with my current project causing it to be set aside and going onto something new!! I came across a Christmas tree skirt I started making about 7 years ago--maybe I will have it done by next Christmas...that is, if I stick to my goal of working on finishing my started projects!! I've also come across projects that I've cut the pieces for, but the pattern was no where to be found and I have no recollection of what the pieces were for! I think I have a problem, but I'm definately not going to address fixing it any time soon...I have so many new projects I want to start! LOL
