My first quilt
So this is it, my very first quilt. I went on a quilting retreat with a friend back in 1996. It was at Eagle Crest Quilters Retreat in Big Bear, CA. Not sure why I didn't stop quilting at that moment, this was a very difficult pattern and I'm thinking not for a beginner for sure. It took me a long time to actually finish and get it quilted.
I named the quilt Welcome to the USA and gave it to my husband, Carlos. He is from Peru, came to the US in the 60's and became a US Citizen in the 80's.
In 2007 my guild, QBS, had an entry for "First Quilt" at their quilt show. I entered and took first place.
Yeah for me!!!!
