My First Quilt


Everyone seems to be posting their first quilts. This is the first quilt I ever made. I was in 8th grade. My home ec teacher, Mrs. Sims, made everyone make a pair of shorts. I asked her if I had to make the shorts becasue I already knew how to sew shorts. She asked me what sewing project I would like to do and I told her that I would like to make a quilt.

The pattern is called "Eddie Stone Light". My mom bought the fabric for me in the Amish country at Mrs. Miller's Quilt Shop in Charm, OH.

I hand pieced and hand quilted the whole thing! I even made my own pattern for the center squares. It was a butterfly on a pansy. It's my favorite quilt. I am very proud of it!
