Camille and Carrie are hosting a parade of quilts, and I thought I would join in. You have to be nice--my first quilt was made when I was about 10 years old. I got into it until I got to the finishing part--it took me forever to put the binding on (I am still not as good about finishing quilts as I am at starting them....). It is hand quilted on the first border, and it was tied (long ago). It's in rough shape now, but I have a sentimental attachment to it. I know, it's kind of ugly.
My most recent quilt is this one:
Since my first quilt (19 years ago) I have changed a lot! My color choices are drastically different, my hand quilting is much better, my machine quilting (which didn't exist then) is coming along. I have also gotten more accurate in my piecing, and I've become a lot more willing to step outside the box in terms of colors and patterns. When I first started quilting, I made all my quilts with cream as a background color (maybe not all, just a lot). I also often would see a picture and decide to make the quilt in the same color scheme. Now I am much more willing to try out lots of color combinations that would have scared me in the past. So that's it! I can't wait to poke around and see everyone else's quilting journeys.
