Pay attention class. There will be a test later…
- Pieced: 1980-1990
Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon Cotton Batting
QuiltFlix: Little Women (any version)
Quilted in shells This is my first attempt at a “real” quilt. Most of the fabrics are things we had- leftover scraps from sewing projects and such. The batting is a “real” batt… all cotton. I think it’s Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon but I’m not sure. It is 100% cotton and so is the backing.
This quilt I pieced on all over the place… out drinking in college… between classes… on lunch breaks at work. I pieced each strip and then added it to the whole.
I quilted it on a Sears two rail frame (and may I NEVER have to baste another quilt!) which broke while I was still not quite finished with it.
When I finished it, I gave it to my mother because it had so many ‘family memory’ fabrics as well as being my first quilt and having Elizabeth’s first quilting stitches in it.
