Amy at Park City Girl is hosting a Fall Quilt Festival. Here is my entry.
This is the first quilt I ever made. The year is 1996. I drafted it out on graph paper then cut template plastic for each shape - even the teeny tiny triangles. I used a clear quilter's quarter to add the seam allowances and cut each piece out with scissors. It is all hand pieced and hand-quilted using the stab-stitch method. I totally didn't know anything about quilting and had not even seen a quilting magazine before. But this was logical to me. Can't remember what type of wadding was used, but definitely not a natural fibre! In fact the fabrics are probably poly-cotton.
This was made for my #2 daughter as a Barbie quilt. She loves it and still keeps it on top of her dresser. She has kindly lent it to me for a photo shoot.
Please visit the Fall Quilt Festival to enter your quilt... there are some fabulous prizes to be won. Better still, there are so many blogs to visit!
