Lovely isn't it? Actually its a bit of a cheat as I didn't piece my first quilt myself. My first quilt seduced me on US eBay - it was a slightly tatty unfinished quilt top of butterflies in feed sacks and I adored it, had that eBay rush of blood to the head, bought it for too much money bidding at 3am, and drove 150 miles to a quilt shop (the lovely Axminster Quilt Store in Milton's Yard in Axminster, Devon - go there if you're nearby - it's my favourite UK quilt shop) to find out how I could finish it.
That was in 2007, I've made nearly 30 quilts since then, so you can see the bug well and truly bit! Here it is again..yumm.
I wonder who appliqued it? Any US readers recognise it? Wouldn't it be amazing to find out?!Anyway, the first post wasn't too hard, I'll be back! I'd love it if you'd send me a picture of your first quilt and your latest, I'm fascinated by it!
