My First Quilt: Carol V

My best friend Christine and I, decided to take a quilting course offered through the PUC in 1995. Previously we had taken a stained glass course together and had such a great time, we wanted to try something else and Christine suggested quilting. I found all my notes I had taken during the course, including swatches of the fabric. The course was taught be a D. Shea...where is she now? I would like to thank her for the beginning of what turned out to be such an addictive hobby!

It was a sampler wall hanging, the names of the blocks were (clockwise from left top) 'Card Tricks', 'Eddystone Light', 'Weather Vane' and the applique was '4 Tulips'. I bought the fabric from the now defunct Duthler's Textiles. I had fallen in love with the blue starry fabric, I had to have some! I was so into stars back then :)


Here is a close up of the label I cross-stitched to match 'Eddystone Light' block. Before I got into quilting, I was very much into cross-stitch and I love to mix the two.
