I haven't done anything crafty lately so i'll just show you one of my quilts you haven't seen before. This is a quilt I made seven years ago. Ooops, make that 6 years ago (see note below). My first paper-foundation quilt and the second quilt I ever made. Ok, maybe the third quilt if I count the quilt I made in beginner's quilting class. I was such a newbie I wasn't afraid to try anything. I used Aunt Grace Thru the Year fabric collection, my very first 30's repro (love it!), I used paper foundation by Little Foot/Lynn Graves, the 7 1/2" log cabin/geese in the cabin pattern, heavy cotton chenille for backing and no batting. Donna did such a beautiful job quilting this for me. The Binding Queen couldn't stop talking how easy it was to bind it. hehehe! She thoroughly enjoyed binding it for me... NOT! She said the chenille was soo thick she had a hard time sewing the binding on and broke all her fingers in the process. Ok, the last part wasn't true. She threatened to charge me double even triple the next time I give her a quilt with heavy backing. Grrrrrr!
Update: Ooopsy! I knew something was wrong when I read Dawn's comment. I've been quilting for six years not seven. Just to be sure, I had to find the first quilting magazine I ever bought. It was AP&Q Quilt Sampler 2002. That same year, they released a special issue called Century of Quilts. Aaaah, I feel much better now. LOL!
Have a wonderful weekend. Toodles!
