Mine was the Rail Fence pattern. After making it, I was hooked on quilting.

A simple Four-Patch - I was 8 years old and have been quilting ever since - I grew up under the quilts and played under them as my Grandmother and Mom would hand quilt.
I am so hooked! LOL

I took a class called " beginning to end " with a wonderful teacher when I was living in Oregon. I've never looked back!
I don't remember what the pattern was called, but it has star blocks and four patch blocks. I still really like the quilt and I learned how to make a quilt from cutting to binding!

It was simply 6 inch squares from a fat quarter bundle of six fabrics - purple, yellow and green - about 4 feet by 4 feet. It hangs over my sewing studio door as my inspiration that all quilts are beautiful

I bought a book with different size templets and the very first quilt was for my hubby. The name of the quilt is Churn Dash. Date Jan 2009, Great therapy to help eaze the mind while your love one has chemo treatments. I used one of El border ideals from her Victory quilts and the colors are Brown, Blue, Light Tan, and Very Light Tan. I have made a total of 12 quilts I have photos of each one in my brag book. I am sooo hocked now that no one can take me away!! I taught myself and still learning.

I jumped in off the deep end with a Dresden Plate! I am a self taught quilter and had no one to tell me not to.

I took a class it was a sampler quilt I drove about 60 miles the first Saturday of the month just to get the block free! That was before the gas prices got so high.
