Blogging about making a quilt with my daughter made me remember the joy I felt when I first got into quilting, so I thought it would be fun (and sort of embarrassing) to post pictures of my first quilts!
I started quilting in 1995, two years after Jason and I got married. I don’t know what hit me but it was the most fun thing I had ever done and couldn’t imagine life without fabric!
The first quilt I made was for Jason. It was made from flannel squares and tied with yarn. I still remember the thrill of completing each 9 patch block. I had no idea about seam allowances or stitch length but I dove in and did it anyway!
As every quilt should have a label, I finished these up properly. Even though these quilts have received lots of wear & tear over the years, I’m glad I documented them so I can remember when it all began!
