Are you familiar with Throwback Thursday on social media where people post pictures of themselves from "way back"? I like the idea of a quilt version and have sometimes posted on my personal Instagram account pictures of quilts I have made years ago.
The first quilt I ever made was in a class at Queen Ann's Lace (Kissimmee LQS now closed) back in 2004 where our class of four each made a rail fence lap quilt.
I named the quilt AmERICa for my son Eric and the patriotic fabrics used. I don't now what I was thinking by using red, white and blue variegated thread for quilting my very first quilt ever, but you know what they say "Go bold or go home"! I used my walking foot and quilted straight lines going diagonally across each block.
Do you remember the first quilt you ever made? Leave a comment describing your first quilt for a chance to win the next door prize in our getting to know you series. I don't believe you can include a picture in your comment (correct me if I'm wrong), but please share a picture of your first quilt on our Facebook or Flickr page and/or tag us on Instagram and Twitter.
I look forward to reading about YOUR first quilt ever made. [Also, feel free to email me (I'm in the directory) if you are having issues leaving comments on the blog.
