While I’m working on the Anita’s Arrowhead setting triangles, I really don’t have anything new to post. Because of my work schedule, it’s been slow going. So, I thought I’d show you a few of my first quilts. When I was a child, I was always badgering my mother to let (read “help” here) me make a quilt. Life was crazy/busy at the time and we never had a chance. Grown up, I finally made my first little quilt: a wall hanging that I posted here.
This one is probably the second quilt I ever made, and certainly the first bed-sized quilt ever. After this one I said, “NO MORE!” It was heavy and a bear to quilt.
This also began my cats' love affair with quilts. This one was so fun to make, I decided to make another. Remembering that I had all these drapery/upholstery samples, I quickly followed with this one that I made in much the same manor as the kitty wall hanging I’d first made.
I love the way this quilt shimmers when the light hits it!!! You can see Elwood all excited about it. However, Jake laid claim to this one. Can you see it’s a 3-D quilt? Here’s some close-ups. Yes, that’s trapunto.
