My Very First Quilt

My Very First Quilt

My youngest daughter was born April 1, 1984. During the pregnancy a friend and I started a quilting class at a local fabric store. It was a sampler quilt with 12 inch blocks that were hand-pieced and hand-quilted on a hoop as we went. Every stitch was by hand! I finally finished the quilt when she was about one year old. She still has it, a little worn and tattered in places perhaps, but she loves it. She even took it to the hospital with her when her son was born recently. In looking at that quilt, I became interested in quilting again and am so thrilled that I have picked up a quilt project for my great granddaughter that I had put aside and have recently finished it. My next project will be for my new grandson. Stay tuned...
