I vividly remember getting to go to Minnesota Fabrics to pick out fabric for my first quilt. At the time, my mom had never sewn triangles, but of course she didn't tell me that and let me forge ahead. Here is the quilt. I still have it. Nope, it's still not done. There were those that came soon after I did complete, but never this one. And I can't go back and do it now, so it remains an incomplete project and a symbol of my heart as well.
We then hand basted the quilt along the sashing and I started hand stitching the blocks. I can't replicate what my 8 year old self would've done, so I leave it as is. A beginning. It was fun to pull it out and look at it. It's been awhile.
I hope you get to quilt today!
