#2 My First Quilts

So there are a few things I am learning, during the process of making a blog.....I am sure there will be many more to come, but this is what I know now....

1. I need to take better pictures!! lol On my phone they look fine but viewing on the computer, not so good!

2. You need to plan what you are going to share, take the right pictures along the way and write down what  you did and why. 
3. Don't stress about it!! This is suppose to be fun, right!! 

So I apologize for the pictures in advance, I will work on that, but here goes.....


I have shared that I just started quilting about a year to a year and a half ago, but I really started my first quilt in 1991. Quite possibly the longest WIP in history!! Lol
I attended a quilt in a day (not quite!!) to make a quilt for my son, than 4yrs. I managed to complete the center of the Boston Common, which I took home and put in a cupboard, and forgot about!! 
When we moved about 3 yrs ago, I found it in the packing stage and thought I should finish it, but again into a cupboard at the new house and forgot about it again.
We were in the new house for a little over a year without a bedspread, when I decided I should make one, and so starts my quilting journey!!!!!
I couldn't make a new one without finishing the first one, but I had no idea how to deal with all the points left on the Boston Common. So off to the local quilt shop and not only did I get help, I joined a beginner class and started meeting the nicest people!!
So I finished the Boston Common and a very simple quilt of blocks using Quilt Wizard Software.  I than booked the 2 quilts to be machine quilted by a local long arm quilter and the rest is as they say "history" I was hooked!!
So that is how I started! My very first 2 projects!!
