    I still have the quilt that my mom made for my bed as a child. She has only made a few quilts so it inspires me to know I don’t have to be a pro at sewing to make good things.

    My friend’s old childhood quilt, well loved, even tattered and torn, made for her by her grandmother. It has inspired me to make quilts for my grandchildren. One down, four to go!

    Not yet! I have made others quilts, and have blankets that have special meanings to me, but they are crocheted and sewn, but not quilted. I’m currently working on a quilt that hopefully will have some meaning to me in the future.

    I have a very special quilt that one of my grandmothers started for me after I was born. She worked on it every now and then over the course of several years but never got it finished. When she passed away, my other grandmother took up the project and finished it for me for my wedding. It hangs on my bedroom wall now and I always think of both of them when I look at the happy tulips that were painstakingly hand stitched onto each block. It is truly a work of love.

    When I was in my early teens, my mother and I made matching embroidered quilts. Mine is in shades of blue and hers was done with pinks and reds. I now have both of them, along with a wonderful collection of quilts made by my grandmother and my husband’s grandmother.

    Yes, the very first one I ever made! It almost didn’t get finished because of an error in the pattern that made the pieces not fit together correctly. But, I continued it, fixing things as best I could, the quilt turned out well despite the fact I didn’t know what I was doing. This was over 20 yrs ago, glad I didn’t give up as I would have never made all the quilts I’ve made since!

    When I was 5, I went to the family beach house with my mum for a weekend and she taught me to sew using a quilt, so half of it is at 5yr old hand sewing quality and the other half is so neat and beautiful. I love it so much, such good childhood memories attached to that small, patchy quilt!
