    Below is the very first quilt I ever made. Ok - its what I thought a quilt was and I thought I did pretty darn good....

    There is no batting - had no idea what that even was...its pretty squared - well rectangled - but even - I made it 11 years ago when my daughter went from Brownies to Juniors in Girl Scouts. There is a matching pillow somewhere with pictures of her - what is so funny on the pillow is it is white but for some reason I used red thread!

    I'm going to take it apart at least on the side and put some batting in and actually quilt it for her before she leaves for college this summer - I'm thinking of expanding it to put all of her patches she earned since Brownies on it but I don't know about that yet.

    Susan - I actually forgot I had made that. I was getting stuff out the hall closet for my garage sale and it was up there in one of those vacuum bags....

    While at this point its not really a quilt - I thought so at the time - I think she will be surprised when she see's it tomorrow - I'm not going to do anything to it until I ask her - she is one of my picky one's and loves home-made clothes and blankets so I don't want to change it if she likes it the way it is!
