My first quilt was Eleanor's Trip Around the World. Made one for each of my children. They loved them, and I loved making them.

In the early seventies it was a nine patch set with sashings, made with cardboard templets to mark out the squares. LOL! This was way before rotary cutters came on the scene.
Then it was two denim twin quilts for my boys. Done with long strips sewn together with some added boy prints. All tied of course.
Then when el's book came out with the log cabin in a day I felt like I was so liberated being able to tear those strips!I did it up into baby pinks and blues.

My 1st quilt was underground railroad. I wanted to learn a lot of different blocks. It took me about 7-8 hours a day to make 1 block. I "unsewed" a awful lot then. I even did stitch in the ditch quilting. Didn't come out to bad and it was in the quilt show under "1st time quilts" I felt like I won the lottery, the quilters were offering sweet remarks to the group of us. They were so welcoming. I try to "pay it forward" to anyone I know is new.

A simple zig zag, and the new kids blanket was beautiful

It is so funny to get nostalgic about our first quilt, but we put SO MUCH LOVE IN THEM. Mine was Log Cabin - Eleanor Burns book as well.
