    Saw the suggestion about posting pictures of "first" quilts. Here's mine. I called it my kaleidoscope quilt, but just because that's what it reminded me of .... didn't know there was a whole "Genre" of quilts with that name! I came up with the design myself. The solid fabrics were from a package of hand-dyed fabrics done by a local artist.

    This is only about 22x30. I put flannel on the back, thinking I might use it for a baby, but I've not wanted to part with it!
