My mom has sewn all her life. She came into quilting during her honeymoon when my grandmother showed her my great grandmother's quilts. I grew up sleeping under those quilts in the summer because they were so light weight.
I remember my first trip to the fabric store to buy fabric for my first quilt. It was at Minnesota Fabrics and I remember being so excited to pick my own.
I remember playing with my mom's triangle scraps and telling her how to sew them together.
I remember entering my first quilt show when I was a kid and going to see my quilt in the kid's exhibit.
I remember taking my first quilting class at a quilt show when I was in college and I've been hooked ever since on taking classes from national teachers. It was a tessellation class from Jinny Beyer.
I remember standing with my mom in front of my quilt the first time I won a ribbon in Paducah and the sheer joy we both had!
These are some of my fond memories.
I hope you get to quilt today!
What delightful memories you have, Suzie! Thanks for sharing :-)ReplyDelete
