I started quilting in my late teens. I'm not sure exactly when but I do remember looking at a vintage quilting book with templates for a Double Wedding Ring Quilt.
I drew up a square, divided it into shapes and made templates out of cereal boxes. Ah little did I know there was more to patchwork than just sewing bits together
I stitched blocks alternated with white squares and stitched it all together. I know I stitched the pieced squares by hand but don't remember if the white squares where by hand or machine. It was stitched to a back (bagged) turned right side out and tied with crochet cotton.
This is the only picture of the QUILT that traveled to Australia. Well it was the only quilt I'd made. .
The beautiful baby is my first born Heather. She is under a year old so that dates the quilt's completion before 1973.
Does any one else have a story or know what happened to their first bit of Patchwork?
I'm stitching small pressies to take away so no show and tell.
Have a good weekend my friends and treat yourself in some way Terry
