I decided to take part in #igquiltfest this year hosted by Amy at:
It’s been a fun opportunity to first introduce myself and then to share my first quilts. My first quilt made in 1985 was a very simple quilt pre any quilting tools just a strong desire to make a quilt for my first baby.
My first quilt was made using a simplicity pattern and fabric purchased from Zellers… I had a lot of sewing experience by the time I was 23 however the binding stumped me and I never completely finished that quilt. I did however use it and as more daughters came along I kept using it.
So now all these years later I began wondering if I should now finish the binding…part of me said no, it’s such a special memory. I have decided to bind it and maybe one day it can be shared with another baby or just kept as a special memory.
Would you bind this quilt?
The next prompt was favourite sewing machines, while I love all of my machines My Juki Haruka is my current favourite domestic machine and of course my APQS Millenium is my favourite Longarm.
Todays prompt is creative hands and I shared this picture, introducing my Granddaughter to my Longarm. I have taught my Grandson Liam to quilt and I hope to share my love of quilting with my other Grandchildren as well.
