Firsts....

I saw this Parade of Quilts first on Jodi's blog tonight and thought I would play along... showing your first quilt you ever made and your most recent quilt.

But I discovered that I didn't have a photo of my first quilt, at least, not in the era of digital cameras kind of photo! So I rummaged around to find the quilt in the linen closet, kind of smushed in there but still in one piece.....

Here it is.... my first quilt....a baby quilt that I made using a pattern in the first volume of PS I Love You (after taking an intro to quilting class at a local community college continuing education program, I figured I could do just about anything!). I really didn't know what I was doing ....

my very first quilt


but I did most of the quilting by hand! (ah... those were the times of leisure, B.C. = Before Children).....

my very first quilt- closer examination

It was to be the quilt for my first baby and she slept under it for a couple of years!

My latest quilt is also a baby quilt... but boy, have my preferences changed!!!!

This quilt, which I have shown previously on my blog, is for Sugarbaby's teacher who is due to have her first child in early September.....

the back is just as much fun as the front, I think!

Here are the first blocks for a project that has been brewing in my head ever since I started (my prize winning) Case Study #1.....

Playing with an idea that has been brewing in my head for some time

(stay tuned for the name of that quilt!!!)

And finally, our first real feels-like-summer day!!!!!

Splash!

Sunning and sewing....

Sunning and sewing... What more could I ask for???

What more could a girl ask for?!!!

Have a good weekend!
