Christmas Little Quilt
I originally got interested in quilting when I found the book Little Quilts. This Christmas quilt pattern was in a magazine and as you can see I was not a perfect quilter. Sewing has been a part of my life since I was 11 years old so I thought quilting would be easy. How wrong I was. Mastering the 1/4 inch seam has taken me years and I don't think I would still consider entering anything I make into a competition--I'm not sure I'm enough of a perfectionist.
Long before I considered it quilting, I appliqued this wall hanging for my home, when I had two small children. As you can see by the colors it was made in the early 80's!
