My daughter Camille is having a contest on her blog and we are supposed to show the first quilt and the latest quilt we made so I decided to post about mine. I have been sewing since I was six so I don't really remember my first quilt, probably one for a barbie bed of some sort, and I don't have any pictures of all the ones I made before I started designing. The first quilt I designed is called Baskets and Berries. It debuted at Quilt Market in 2000. You may recognize the other face in the picture, yes it is Karla Eisenach. She is known for her many great designs most recently her Authentic fabric line from Moda. Her company is called Sweetwater now, but back in the day when she was Farmyard Creations we became friends. In the background is my first quilt I designed and have a picture of.
(Don't kill me Karla!)
As for my latest quilt, it was my Life's Journey quilt. It's easy, fast and fun and it really describes life, up and down. It certainly is a journey.
Here is another shot of it at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh.
Thanks for stopping by!
