First Quilt Ever

My first quilt EVER! Everybody go awwwwwwwww….

“awwwwwwwwww”

This is the quilt that got me started and I’m still doing quilts like this!

It is just basic blocks with a flower border, ‘X’ quilting and hand sewn binding.

I started this quilt in about 2006. I was around 9 or 10 years old and a wonderful lady, who babysat me and my brothers sometimes, could quilt. I wanted to learn, so she taught me how to do the basic: “sewing a straight line”

I got the top together (without the border) and then I don’t really remember details but for some reason we never finished it.

Later, we moved to another city.

It sat in a bag until 2011 when another wonderful lady, who will forever be known as the one who got me into quilting, helped me finish it! She taught me everything I know and I’m so grateful for her :)

Without further ado, here are some pics of my FIRST EVER quilt:
