My first quilt EVER! Everybody go awwwwwwwww….
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:
