My First Quilt…

Bonnie Hunter is sharing her first quilt on her blog post here with some great stories and picture from her childhood herunterladen.

My first sewing memories were from a home economics class.  I didn’t exactly take to it like a fish to water but successfully finished the required projects.  My first machine was a Kenmore.  I must have liked sewing though because I made lots of my own clothes as a young woman.  And I made lots of PJs and clothes for my two kids as well mail drop file.

I had a neighbour at our last house/neighbourhood who was a quilter.  She was offering some ladies in our neighbourhood free quilting lessons.  She provided the pattern so I just had to follow the shopping/supply list and tools and then show up.  This was my first experience with a rotary cutter and mat, with contrasting fabrics that weren’t all matchy, matchy.  Plaids with polka dots…really?  Anyway, we had a couple of lessons with Lisa and then I managed to finish the quilt by myself youtube music browser.

And here is my first quilt:

Stitched in the ditch for quilting and a machine sewn binding which did not wrap around.  I actually entered it into the Saanich Fair for ‘my first quilt category’ and won second prize.  I was astonished ard mediathek tatort herunterladen!

Anyway, this quilt was made for my son, now 20,  and it’s an almost twin size  I still have this quilt.

Until next time,
