A quote from Daisy Quilts Blog:
One of the things I am always most curious about with quilting and especially we quilters is...
Where and how did we start quilting?What started us on this wonderful endless journey??
So I got to thinking.... Why don't we share our stories and our first quilts..
Would you be interested in joining me??
Here's a link to Daisy's blog and where this started. http://daisyquilts.blogspot.com/2009/09/where-did-we-begin.html
Most of you know, my story is on my sidebar. I'll move it to here and show some pics of my first finishes.
HOW I GOT STARTED SEWING 4 YEARS AGO..
This baby quilt and small pillow was for a girl at church that loves frogs. You might can click on it to see the frogs. This was one of my first 10 quilts.
This Mickey Mouse quilt I donated to be auctioned for a girl that was in kindergarten with E who had brain cancer. This quilt brought $169.00 and it's small. I think it was more for the benefit than the workmanship. lol
Now, this was my very FIRST quilt completed and sent to our friends in NE for their 4th baby girl. I have no idea where I got the pattern or if I made it up. I know I got those pre-cut blocks from ebay. ha
Another one of my first, I really liked this one, it was so soft and fluffy. I guess I could have been more creative in my placement of those blocks, huh? I donated this one to our church to be raffled for the youth group. I think they sold upwards of 80 tickets. Not bad.
I would be so interested in reading everyone else's "how you got started" story.
