A few scrap quilts

All Sewed Up

I think this is one of my first quilts, it's a wall hanging that I pieced together from scraps. I made it so long ago, I wished I dated it, maybe 10 or more years ago. It's from one of Debbie Mumm's quilt books, I was a big fan back then. I made it for my sewing room, but after I completed it, it didn't hang properly off the wall, a little wonky in some places. I must have quilted it wrong or something. I machine quilted it the easiest way possible. Lately it's been stored with my other quilts.

Actually, maybe this one is my first quilt?? Now I realize the importance of dating your quilts. It's also made of scraps, I remember going to town cutting 3-inch squares and making 9 patches and then voila, a quilt! I kind of didn't know which way I was going with this one, I was just making squares. I wished I made wider borders, though. I think I'm going to start a quilt journal.

Thanks again for taking a peek, I'm having fun reading all about quilts! I love Quilt Month!!
