My First Quilt

The first quilt I ever made (1983) and uses fabrics from my kids’ baby dresses (Vyella), an old silk skirt, and some cheap cotton fabrics.

I used the English paper piecing method, and proceeded to design my own design.

I had never seen a patchwork book, a quilt shop, and didn’t know someone else had designed the ‘Rolling Star’ pattern many years before me!

I still love this quilt, but it is truly awfully badly made.

For more than thirty years, I have been teaching (make that enthusing) people about making quilts, and am now retired!

And now I make art every day!
