Here's my first ever quilt, made in 1991. Felt like it took about a million hours to complete - all by hand, with telephone tutoring from my Grandma every step of the way. I hung it on the wall over Miss N's crib. Here she is with it all grown up:). It's a simple nine patch using fabric from my Mom, Grandma, and even Great-Grandma. I struggled with and loved the process of making this quilt - I was hooked!
This is the Dutch Doll baby quilt Grandma Mary Lou made for Miss N in 1992. It remains one of my all-time favorite quilts. Grandma's friend Millie helped her select fabrics. It is machine quilted in a "hanging diamonds" pattern.
It was followed a year later by this Tulip Applique for Miss K, also machine pieced and quilted by Mary Lou. The light green alternate blocks were made with fabric from my bridesmaids' dresses.
