My First and Latest!!

Carrie and Camille, are having this cool Parade of Quilts show and it has been SO fun to see everyone's first quilt and latest quilt. I've loved all of the evolving that has gone on over the years. I have only been doing the quilting thing for about 16 years (a relative newcomer to some of you :). But I did sew clothes and stuff in high school and took a lot of home ec classes. I have even sewn button down oxford shirts (WHAT WAS I THINKING)?????
I thought I would share 2 of "my firsts" and one latest with you too! Here goes.....

My First first
It's only 14" x 18" It is the finished product from the first ever class I took. This quilt was made with TEMPLATES and I cut everything out with scissors AND I hand sewed the whole thing together, and hand quilted it - no sewing machine used AT ALL!!! Wow, that was the first and last time I did that!




Here is another of my firsts, it is 15 years old and is the softest quilt I have ever made. I think it must have to do with the fact that it is hand quilted. There is really a different "feel" to a hand quilted quilt. I was looking at it, and my points are cut off on a lot of the bear paws, but I don't care, I still love this quilt! It took me awhile to quilt it (crosshatch on the diagonal 1" apart) but I did it all!!!! I made it for my son when he was born. I still love the way it feels






My latest - A very fun table topper for the holidays - made out of Figgy Pudding. I think it would make a darling baby quilt too :)




This cute quilt is my friend Lindsey's VERY FIRST EVER QUILT!! I think it turned out darling!! She used my pattern Spice Cake. Way to go Lindsey, there will be many more to come :)



PS I completed all but 2 things from my dreaded list - NOT BAD!! (if you are confused, see post below)

Nice quilts - I agree hand quilted quilts tend to be softer and more "flexible" maybe than machine quilted quilts - difference is in how much quilting is in them I guess?

Hand quilted quilts are definitely softer and more snuggly.
Thanks for sharing your journey.

I would say you've come quilt a long way, lady! I'm just in awe over your hand quilting job- amazing.

So fun to see where you started, thanks for joining in!
