A Golden Oldie

Today I'm sharing one of the first quilts I ever finished.  I made this in 1994.
It was a Christmas gift for my parents.

Clearly, powder blue and mauve were all the rage in '94.  :-)
Why I decided to pair it with that purple floral background?  Anyone's guess.


It's funny to see how fabrics change, but I do still love a good old fashioned sampler.

This pattern was a sampler class that I took at a LQS.  I originally made this in Christmas fabrics, then reused the pattern to make this quilt.  That original Christmas quilt is still just a topper, packed away in a cedar chest waiting to be quilted.........someday!  (Maybe.)  Hard to get motivated on some of those golden oldies!

Mom still keeps this on her guest room bed in springtime.

I'll always be sentimental about this one.  I was so proud to have finished a quilt!

  1. This quilt is so very special. I will treasure it always. Do you remember that you quilted "I love you" in one of the corners?
