This was one of the first quilts I did when I picked up quilting again.
Oh, the days of big box store calico’s.
The idea of quilting on my domestic machine was still new to me so and this is my second quilt giving it a try.
I had heard about quilt shops and the quality of their fabrics and had started researching fabrics. Since this was not made with quality fabric I decided that it would be a practice quilt that would get a lot of use. Not wanted to put any more money into it, I serged the edge instead of putting on a binding.
It has been a fort, bedding for the grandkids and mostly a quilt to snuggle under on cool nights while sitting out on our porch swing.
Funny, it’s not quality work or fabric, and is quite worn, but I bet it’s one the family will remember long after I am gone. They won’t see that I see.
The quilt is quite big 77″ x 97″ and certainly big to wrestle under a domestic machine. But it is and was possible.
Looking back. On the journey, Jackie
