Another Project To Add To The List

I made this quilt for my aunt back in the spring of 2001 when I was still quite a novice at quilting. It was just my attempt to make a scrap quilt using up some really ugly fabrics in my very small stash. The photo is awful -- it was taken with one of my very primitive digital cameras -- the quilt has quite a bit more color than you can see. The triangles are actually green. My aunt has used this quilt quite a bit and it's now time for it to be replaced, as you can tell by these photos.


I plan to make her another scrappy quilt; I think I've learned a thing or two over the last nine years of quilting, so this time I plan to make it a bit more appealing to the eye...

For a novice quilt, it really is quite nice. But over the years isn't it neat to see how our style and tastes change?

I'm amazed that the quilt wore out so quickly - that is only 9 years old and it looks like it has had the wear and tear that a quilt I made has that is now 22 years old! Looks like your aunt loved it to death LOL

We do what we can with what we have at the time, right?
