    I was refolding my quilts today and found the very first quilt I made.I started out with a lady bug fabric and this is what I ended up with. There were two of us in this class. We were both first time quilters. I think it took us 8 wks to complete.

    It is queen size

    Your sampler quilt is very nice, but I love your roses - so much that I made the orange one my desktop wallpaper! :thumbup:

    that is a gorgeous first quilt!!! Mine is no where near as nice, and sadly...it has several rips in it, as it is over 20 yrs old. Now If I had quilted steadily for 20 years.......I;d be ahead of where I am now.
