This is one of the first quilts I did, with pieces of fabrics offered by my quilting friends. At that time, about 20 years ago, I had very few fabrics, found with great difficulties! I just cut squares and machine sewed them together almost random. Then I hand tied the three layers with knots. It was quickly done! Though I never considered this quilt as "beautiful" it remained dear to my heart because the fabrics were offered to me by friends, and because I enjoyed sewing it naively, without too much wondering about the result. As a matter of fact, it was of great use, washed and rewashed again many times with no fear, and is still on my bed after all those years!

  8. I still love my first quilt too. This one looks so soft and comforting. A technically perfect quilt isn't always as inviting as one made with love and comfort in mind.
