In the past, on the First Day of each month (or at least close to it), I would have a guest blogger tell us about the very first quilt they made. The highs and the lows, the funny mistakes they made, and the sentiments behind why and/or who they made it for. It's kind of therapeutic To realize we don't all start off brilliant at this hobby. To quilt, and to do it well, often takes a lot of time to build up a skill. Learn how to choose fabrics, perfect your 1/4" seam allowance, etc.
With each quilt I make, am still always learning. The process never stops. To see and appreciate our humble beginnings is important. We often do not get a chance to see it with the photos of quilts we commonly see on blogs, etc. with their ideal lighting and perfectly cropped and edited quilt photo shoots.
What do you think? Should we bring it back?
Whose First Quilt would you like to see? I'll do my best to recruit those whose Firsts are requested. Leave me a comment here, on Facebook, Twitter, wherever!
