    Mine was a Christmas tree skirt. Maybe that doesn't count for some people, but it sure got me hooked!

    My first quilt was a BOM at our local Singer store. It was earth tones, and had a chicken block that was 3-D! boy, that was something. The blocks were trees, a house, a chicken, 12 country blocks. I loved that quilt because it was my first one. I don't have it any more because I traded it for an expensive tool for my husband. What can I say? my husband wanted a tool, the owner really wanted the quilt and - I love my husband more than the quilt.

    If you can get it on a digital file, you can upload it to photobucket(a free photo sharing site) and I think you can put it on here. Or if you look a the bottom of where you comment, if you have the digital photo stored on your hard drive you can upload it on here.

    If you don't pm me and I'll try to send you to someplace that can help you or go through with you on how to do it.
    Thanks, I am going to try your instructions this weekend; I want to add some pictures to my folder so I can send more than one. I really appreciate your help.

    I made a king-sized Storm at Sea. I designed the color layout, cut, and machine pieced the quilt. A church quilting circle did the actual quilting. I made it for my daughter who still uses it.

    My first was corduroy squares sewn together with a white sheet for the backing. This was way back in 1970 and I didn't really know what I was doing. None of the squares had been pre washed and the first time it was washed all the different colors bled onto the backing. It really turned out great though...the back looked like it was tie dyed. It was made for my son's bunk bed and he still has it...kinda worn but still hanging in there.

    It was a table runner for a long harvest table. It background was natural color with a hand quilted design of a large scallop shell with rose thread, the sash was a rose design on a medium maroon background, the backing was the same print in medium rose and dark maroon. The hand quilting was in the ditch and a rose and vine design on the muslin. The couple were very pleased with their house warming gift.

    My first quilt was a sampler. I was so proud of it. Made enough blocks for two quilts. Gave them to my daughters.

    My 1st quilt I made 44 years ago. Just blue and white blocks. In the white blocks I painted a birds in each representing the 50 states with banners under them. It was very popular with Artex paints. I just recovered the quilt last year and my kids were horrified as they loved it even if it had faded. This year I found the same pattern and paints and I will do one for each of my kids, as they miss the old one. Now I am not as proud of my work as it was very primitive but enjoy my childrens' memories of its use year after year. I am smiling and my heart is full of joy as my love for my family has been recognized. I hope you all have some of these joys to report.

    MY FIRST QUILT WAS A TURNING TWENTY QUILT, I WENT TO WALMART AND BOUGHT MATERIAL THAT WAS ON SALE, THEN AFTER IT WAS MADE, I DID NOT REALLY LIKE IT, SO IT AWAITS TO BE QUILTED THEN THE BINDING PUT ON! I AM AFRAID IT IS A UFO, UN FINISHED OBJECT. I DID FINISH A SAMPLER QUILT WITH HELP FROM ONE OF MY FRIENDS, MOST OF THE MATERIAL DID COME FROM WALMART BUT IT WAS A LOT BETTER MATERIAL SO THEREFORE I ENJOYED MAKING IT AND I COMPLETED IT AND IT IS NOW A GIFT FOR MY SON AND HIS WIFE FOR CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR, THEY DO NOT KNOW ABOUT IT AS YET.

    My first quilt was a trip around the world where we made the top in a day in a class. I was so tired after I wouldn't look at the quilt for a week after. Before that day I had not sewn anything in about 20 years. This is it.

    Eleanor Burns Log Cabin was my starter. It is still in use, even though it isn't the best workmanship I have. Love that quilt! :roll:

    My first quilt was a Log Cabin made for my eldest grandson who was headed to Michigan State University.

    At the same time I made another Log Cabin in Maize & Blue for the graduation of a grandson who loves the University of Michigan.

    It ws a busy spring, but they were so thrilled that now the High School graduation gift is a Quilt. 7 down and 8 to go.

    When my 2 girls were 10 and 13, 42 and 45 now, I cut out some big blocks, embroudered(sp)(worlds worst) their first inital in the center block, hand sewed the blocks together, then took twin size blankets and sewed the blocks to these and that was their bedspreads until they left home in their early twenties. Wish I had a picture to look back on.
