Camille and Carrie have created a "First Quilt" show on their blogs. I have seen many other quilters first quilts and I must say,"wow!" Seems like most quilters bit off more than they could chew and really made a nice job of it. This is my first quilted table runner. My husband told me that this was my first quilt. He remembers me having fun making it and particularly enjoying choosing the fabrics.
This is the first quilt I made from a pattern without anyone to help.
(Carrie you were looking for the "uglies" and here it is ...) I was very proud to make this quilt for my husband ... to make matters worse, the fabric designer was at my house for a retirement party and ... I proudly showed it to her! (oh the horror, of that memory.) She was very gracious and kind (bless her...)
A recent quilt is a difficult decision for me ... I have made many quilts and given them to others, but lately I have been making bed quilts, much too large for me to quilt myself. So I picked one from the last year or so to share.
I have learned to trust myself and do what will make me smile. The rotary cutter is a good friend, and a husband that gives you a room in the house for all your quilting needs is a best friend!
