    Hi Brenda. So many beautiful fabrics. I’m looking forward to seeing the Lonestar. It’s one of my favourite quilts. My first quilt was started at a quilt retreat in Barkerville, BC. It was a spool quilt made of 4” finished spool blocks, made with 13 pieces of fabric. Since the quilt was queen sized you can imagine the number of blocks. (I’ve forgotten).

  2. Rita Haverman

    I made a simple sampler quilt that I still have. I was a newbie that garment sewed previously. 20 years later I’m still going strong. Batiks are my favorites!

    My first quilt was a baby quilt for my sister. It was appliqued with a pink flamingo and trees and a pond. I was 12 years old and drew up the pattern myself.

    My 1st quilt was a twin-sized quilt. I embroidered 114 four in squares with little pictures taken from coloring books. I also hand quilted it.

    My first quilt was a baby quilt for my doll!

    My first quilt was a Log Cabin, cut with scissors. (Showing my age!)

    Hi Brenda, I will look forward to your new blog hop posts. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome fat quarters.

    Brenda, I look forward to seeing what you and the other Ambassadors make. I really appreciate that you will let your readers/followers know when each Ambassador is posting their project or I wouldn’t be able to even find them all, unless I follow them and I do follow a few, but not all of them.
