Way back in the early 2000's, my family got together and gave me (and my sister) a sewing machine for Christmas. It took a year or two, but I eventually found quilting - and I LOVE quilting. I pulled out a few of my VERY old photos, and found my first ever sewing project.
This is a small lap quilt (4' x 3') that I had NO idea how to put together. I had no pattern and no directions. I gave it my best go, and it turned out alright! I figured a bunch of squares would be easy to put together - I was wrong. Lining up a bunch of corners - especially before finding out about rotary cutters - is really difficult.
But here you are, my first quilt, from 2004:
And the back was plain maroon flannel - the photo is terrible, sorry:
