My First Quilt: Christine R.

As you read a couple of weeks ago in Carol's entry, I made my first quilt in 1995 in an introductory class put on by the PUC. I had two toddlers at the time, and was in need of some "outside stimulation". Carol and I thought quilting would be fun so we signed up for the class. I never would have imagined all the joy it would bring- of friendship and of creating something by hand that could be enjoyed by many.
Here is my version of the PUC sampler. It hangs above my bed at the cottage.
It was made of fabrics purchased at Quilters' Supply. A nice lady helped me to pick out some fabrics that would co-ordinate with the blue fabric (tossed with red cherries) that caught my eye.
All in all, it was a lovely experience. I got out of the house, learned all the skills I needed to start quilting on my own, and best of all I was able to spend time with a dear friend.
