I had to make up the spare bed today for a visitor tonight and as I was making it I realised I have never shared my very first quilt. Not long after I was married (we were given my sewing machine as a wedding present from SH's grandmother) I did night quilting classes at an Adult education centre with a friend. We were not very good at doing our homework and at the end of the course I had a bag of squares to show for it and not much else!!!It was quilt as you go and a sheet was cut up for the backing. The colors are quite dated, green and pink! A few years ago Mum offered to see what she could do with them and managed to put together a small quilt and a pillow! She did say it was a true labor of love!!! Hopefully my quilting has improved since then but it will always hold a special place in my home!
While making the bed I had a helper! Peter spent most of the time hiding under the pillow and just poked his head out to say hi! He is very cute!
