Hey y'all! Hope you are having a great weekend!
There hasn't been much sewing this week since I have been busy preparing to take some of my students to a DECA competition this week. Since I knew there wouldn't be much new stitching going on, I thought I'd share some of my very first quilts here on the blog. Of course, I made (and gave away) quite a few quilts before I started blogging, but I do have three of my earliest quilts still hanging around.
This quilt, while not the very first, is definitely the most used. I sit under it all the time while watching TV, blogging, and working on the computer. I really should make a new lap quilt for myself since its a little on the short side.
I used a basic coin quilt pattern from a quilt magazine as a pattern for this. Although I can't remember the name of the magazine or issue number now. This quilt is probably at least 10 years old. At the time that I made it I was learning to free motion quilt. Amazingly, my borders came out pretty well.
And I am sure I had no idea that piecing a stripe down the back was "modern" ... I just knew I didn't have enough blue fabric! I've actually pieced a stripe in the back of several quilts since.
Well that's all for this quilt ... I have two other "early" quilts to share with you soon.
Happy Sewing! :-)
