Kay's First Quilts
Lorri posted a picture of her first quilt so I thought I would post some of my first quilts. This is not my first quilt but it is my first quilt not from a kit. My first quilt was a quilt from a kit where you embroidered flowers with simple X's. It has orange and yellow flowers with yellow borders. I made it when I was in high school so it would have been made probably in 1975. This one was made in the late 80's. The stars are called Ohio Stars. It is not made very well and I thought the quilt top had disappeared. I was hoping that it was lost forever. Well my Mother found it in the bottom of a closet recently and decided to have it quilted. It is very big (85 x 85) and the stars don't line up and the navy blues don't match. Notice it does not have any binding. That is because it is so big and made so bad that I don't want to finish it. I should finish it though because even though it looks bad it could still keep someone warm.
