    My first was a Log Cabin that I made at a class at Joann's. I have it somewhere packed away.

    My first was log cabin king size for our bed. I must have been crazy. Got it finished and used it for quite a few years until we change our color skeem, sold it for 25.00 in garage sale.

    My first completely on my own quilt was a sampler of many pieced blocks featuring solid brown, blue print, light orange with white! All very traditional blocks. I hand quilted it...took forever! That was in the early 1960's...I still have it and wouldn't take anything for it!

    My first quilt was a "Quilts for Kids" quilt. I just mailed it today and loved it. I know it was not perfect, but it will always be special to me.

    A yellow and blue log cabin. And yes I still have it. To many mistakes to give it away. But I like it anyway.

    My first quilt was a trip around the world quilt. I have never kept any of my quilts, although I have some smaller projects.

    My first one was for my husband. I didn't know how to sew blocks together to make a quilt but I figured if I slapped some fabric on top of other fabric, I could just sew it down. OOOOOOh I have learned so much since making this one, but it's still his favorite. It's all hand done, even though the backing fabric was prequilted(lol) I've gotten a bit better since then

    It's been a few years --- someone else jarred my memory and actually, my first quilt was a 'puff quilt'. We loved it, then our son loved it. For him I took out the worn out squares and replaced them with good ones to make a twin size for him. Thanks for the memories!

    My first quilt was a lemoyne star and I almost quit quilting with that project. I was delusional and arrogant and thought I could start out with that. I drafted my own pattern and thought I was hot stuff until I started to put it together having no idea about corners or 1/4 inches. It came out real nice and my daughter has it and treasures it. I have since then learned a lot and have made 2 more for my other DD and DGD. I have also taken several classes to improve my skills. LOL

    My first quilt was totally handmade. Bowtie, one my own mother had actually started. I found 2 blocks in her things after she passed and I decided I just had to finish it. Since then I've made 4 quilts. I do still have my 1st quilt, I think of my moma when I look at it. :)

    I just used 6" squares and tied it with ....yarn... I about killed my hands tying the silly thing. Gave it to my sister and she used it for years but it is falling apart because I knew nothing about seams matching or anything.

    My first quilt was a queen size scrappy made up of two inch squares. The material came from my mother's stash which she collected by makong clothes for us kids. Yes I kept it. Made it forty years ago. Ten years ago while recouprating from surgery at my mother's, house my house was broken into and along with everything not nailed down, even my dentures, it was taken. Wasn't smart enough to document the quilt, so it's on someone elses bed.

    My first quilt was a queen size log cabin in pinks and blues. Still have it, and it is in pretty good shape for being 25 years old! :)
