Last Hand Sewn Quilt

So, by this time I had a sewing maching, but didn't really know how to use it. Sad, I'm sure. But, this was for my sister's graduation, and I didn't want to screw it up. So, one more hand sewn....

Still Hand Sewing...

So, after that first quilt, I was hooked. The next one was from this book. It was a blue and white one, queen size. A little ambitious for a hand sewer. But, that quilt was very loved. Used it for at least three years, then the dog got to use it. Until he ate it. Anyway, I then made a smaller one from the same book. And then realized that I really needed a sewing machine.

First Quilt Ever

Okay, so this is really playing catch-up...but the ladies listed under "inspirations" made me decide to finally post some of my projects publicly. Thank you to all those very creative people for sharing their work with everyone.

This is the first quilt I ever made. 2002, and all hand sewn, since I didn't even have a sewing maching then. I just knew I loved fabric, and wanted to do something with it...

More projects to come.
