The First Quilt
I made this quilt 9 years ago. The pattern is titled "Oh, My Stars" and its worked from the center block out. Each boarder is added on to the next boarder. A friend of mine who is an expert quilt maker, gave a quilting class. She charged $2 for a 4 hour class every 2 weeks. It was fun. A bunch of ladies together, laughing, looking at fabric, matching fabric, eating lunch together...ya it was fun.
I made these next two quilt blocks a couple of years ago. In hind sight I think I should have used 3 different fabrics, It would bring the center block out and make it more of a focal point if I had used a different fabric instead of the yellow floral.
I like these Victorian fabrics. Pretty and feminine.
I'm thinking about making a dolly quilt. I helped Livia make one a few years ago for her dollies. I have a bunch of fabric scraps in a bag that I am thinking about cutting up into squares. I think I'll work on that today. :)
