  1. The first quilt I made was one I designed myself and I used scraps. It was so long ago that there were no patterns available, no internet or Pinterest, etc.

  5. My first quilt was probably a doll quilt, made when I was 6 or 8 (nearly 60 years ago!). Many years passed until I made my next quilt, a 9-patch corduroy lap quilt for my grandfather. No batting, no hand or machine quilting, just 9-patches, a border, a corduroy backing, and yarn ties to hold the two layers together. No binding, either. I turned in the edges and stitched them down. Thanks for offering the giveaway, Melissa.

  78. my first quilt was a full sized log cabin. I hand pieced and hand quilted it. I tore the fabric strips, because I didn't know about rotary cutters and realized rearing the fabric was easier than cutting straight with scissors! Unfortunately, I didn't know to buy only 100% cotton fabrics, so some of the fabrics haven't held up as well as others. I still have it, but it doesn't look great. It was used a lot the first several years, but some parts of it faded heavily, and some wore out!

    ReplyDelete
  79. My first quilt was a half square triangle quilt from watching Eleanor Burns on PBS back in 1990. Every relevant technique that is used in quilting today was taught by her back then. She was my inspiration and I met her at Quilt Market in 2001

  174. I made my first quilt in middle school for art class. It was a mini wall hanging and it was entirely hand pieced and quilted. I really don't know how I finished it! I was carrying that project with me everywhere for months it seems! It now hangs in my grandmothers dining room. A little backwards, I share my "heirlooms" with my grandparents and other family. I'm the only crafty one.

    Followed on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest! <3 <3 Good luck to all

  175. My first quilt was a wall hanging for a fund raiser. It was so long ago that I really had to think hard about it. I didn't know anything about quilting, just sewing and made it from a Leisure Arts leaflet.

  177. The first quilt I ever made was for my grandson 5 years ago. I am not even sure if he still has it, it was that horrible, lol. It was the FIRST 'piece' I had ever sewn in my life...He has another since then though, lol.

  181. My first quilt was made when I was a teenager. It was a sun bonnet Sue I made for a new cousin that was being adopted. I am sure there is no way that quilt is still together!
