Hmmm…I’m a new quilter with so many works in progress….But, the oldest?? I’d have to say is my very first quilt. Pictured here.
When I first started working at Stitchin’ Heavn in 2005, I was lucky if I knew how to thread a needle in a machine. Shoot, I didn’t even own a machine… Well, the shop hosted an employee retreat at the Bunkhouse and we all stayed for 2 days, Memorial Day Weekend, I think. Anyway, I learned how to piece for the first time with my newly acquired New Home sewing machine, given to me by Deb.
My quilt is small, maybe 36 X 50 or so.
When I was finished, I was so thrilled that I had just made my first quilt. Even though, I learned then that your corners should match, you should press, and my blocks were puffy…hee hee….. I didn’t feel like ripping it apart and it is now and still, just a quilt top. I’m afraid that may be my little quilt’s fate or maybe I’ll just continue to call it my WIP.
