Keeping track of the hours spent creating an original designed art quilt is not part of my process. Mainly because in the end it doesn't matter, it's all about completing a well designed and executed piece and I don't want to feel like I have to rush so my hourly rate will improve.
However, after a discussion with some of my art buddies, I got curious. 62 hours went into this one. It's discouraging just how poor the hourly rate would probably be when sold and if I factored in the cost of materials & equipment....I'd surely be totally discouraged.
Yet, I can no more quit making art than quit breathing!

Although the quilting above appears silver, the detail photo below provides the true color. Additionally, the background fabric is a subtle print of ginkgo leaves on very dark green, not black as it looks.
