Getting Started

I’ve been quilting off and on for almost 25 years. Way more “off” than “on”.  I guess I’m easily discouraged.

Or was I just too impatient to learn to do it right?

Anyway, I was going to post a picture of my first (that I can remember) completed quilt.  It was made sometime between 1985 and 1990.  But I can’t find it.  It probably fell victim to a recent cleaning/decluttering frenzy.  I vaguely remember putting it in the Goodwill bag.

It was probably 40 x 40 and made with a blue and pink fabric from JoAnn’s, just squares sewn together, nothing fancy.  The batting was too thick to attempt any hand quilting so I tied it with yarn instead.  And I’m not sure where I got the idea but to finish the quilt I just made the backing large enough to fold the edge over and tack it down.

Maybe it’s good that I can’t post a picture.
