My Very First Quilt!

Wanna see my very very first quilt?

I made this when I was, oh, six years old? It was made in my favorite colors, blue and pink. Funny, I made another blue and pink quilt many years later…

Help a rookie today! You never know where they’ll go in their quilt-making adventures.



Memories… Like the corner of my mind… Misty, cotton memories. :)

“Pink Waves” in process.

Oh this is so neat…. I like them both… Its great to see the difference in styles and how much you have learned from that 1st quilt.

Wow, even as a 6 year old you had talent! Very nice quilts! I just signed up for the event in Shipshewana, Indiana in February, can’t wait to meet you and your mom!

It’s always a good idea to lay blocks out before sewing a row. Unless you meant to have a pinwheel block in the quilt top. My DH used to see my OOPS, sometimes I have a problem seeing patterns, and then have to rip .

You did very well. I’m still putting together quilts and trying to make them look perfect, but even after I’ve quilted them, I find mistakes. But mistakes are how we get better. I hand quilt by the way. It’s hard to take them out after you’ve hand quilted. But you are a very good quilt maker and I love the show. Keep on keeping on. Peggy White. Belen,New Mexico

Hey! My first completed quilt was blue and pink, too! Coincidence? I think NOT! :D

I just made my first quilt (i’m a late bloomer) and it was the same pattern as yours… although maybe not quite as nice. LOVE Quilty!

This is one of my faves! I still have the F&P episode in my DVR where you featured it :)

That quilting on the back was gorgeous!
