    This first pic is my very first "quilt" made back in 1973 or so. I just used 2 sheets, a lightweight batt and tied it and rolled over the edges. Not sure if it would be called a quilt or a blanket. The second pic is what I call my Divorce Therapy Quilt. It kept me busy and got me through some rough patches.

    Isn't quilting wonderful? You never know what you can do until you try, and even if you do it 'wrong', it still right! And as far as therapy...it's the BEST!

    You do such wonderful piecing!

    The first quilt looks fantastic beings how it will be 38 years old this year. The checkers are perfect. I shy away from them.

    I love the colors in the second quilt! What a great job you did.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very pretty quilts. I especially like your therapy quilt. Quilting really is the greatest therapy for lots of what we go through in life. Thanks for sharing!

    Quilting has gotten me through rough patches, too. Thanks for sharing pics of your lovely quilts - the first one is in amazing condition for its age!

    Thanks Cathy. It was this quilt that I could go slow or just throw everything together and rant and rave, cry, cuss and pray.

    I just love these. My granny always tied her quilts and your pictures warmed my heart with memories of her.

    Lovely, lovely quilts.
