I would feel very proud if I had made any of them so I'm a bit nervous about linking up, but on the other hand, I have just made my first one (apart from 2 dolls quilts and a mini, which I entered in the Modern Mini contest, and was then really embarrassed afterwards as it's not modern at all).
Maybe people who have already made 10s of quilts still remember how excited you are at finishing your first one. Or maybe that's just me! Or perhaps that feeling never goes away? Anyway, this is it:
This is my favourite photo because of the little fingers and toes, whose owners were being unusually co-operative.
The quilt was made for the charity Siblings Together, which you can read about here - another reason why this quilt is very important to me. The coloured fabric in the middle was donated by Patchwork Queen. I thought that I could probably manage a quilt based on HSTs and started off with a star in the middle because I felt this sent a positive message. I cut what I had and laid it out in two early designs - at that point I asked for advice from fellow Bloggers! The most popular one ended up like this - part Star and Chains, part one version of Star of Bethlehem, part Swoon. More details are here. Because I wasn't making the quilt for me, I really didn't want to mess it up - this made it a great learning experience.
I'm now on to my second quilt and looking forward to the one after that:-)
If you are visiting from Amy's thank you very much for coming over to take a look. Now I'm just off to do some visiting.
