As you may remember, I am on a fabric diet.
Anyway, I found some fabric that I used in my first quilt some 26 years ago!
I no longer have the quilt but I was staggered to find I still had some of the fabric !!
The fabric in those days was mainly 'country' type prints!
And it looks like green has always been a bit of a favorite color of mine!
There was no such things as jelly rolls or layer cakes then.
(In fact, I still don't own any!!)
This is probably the oldest one of my quilts that I still have!
It is in quite a sad state but I could NOT bear to part with it!
It is the flying geese design-
I remember using plastic templates to trace around, onto the fabric and cutting all the pieces out by hand!
I don't think I even owned a rotary cutter!
Then it was all hand pieced and hand quilted.
I can't believe how thin the batting is!
(My, how things have changed!)
It has indeed seen better days, but its nice to have a link to the past!
What is the oldest quilt that you own, that YOU made?
PS I have been away for the last few days but have been constantly thinking about my friends and neighbors in flooded Queensland. Take care - you are in our prayers!
