quilted handbags, small purses, wallets made during the year
First up, my first quilt from a class taken in 1997. For some years I made small "quilts" just large enough to make vests for the kids and handbags. I took a class so that I could make a bed quilt; left the 8 hour class without making a complete block or knowledge of how to make the block. It just didn't click! Within the week, I talked to the pattern maker and she gave me some one on one attention, after which I spent the next 22 hours piecing the blocks and making my first "class" quilt!
