This is one of the first quilts I made when I started quilting in 2000.
It is made from my first pattern.
It is handquilted..
I was extremely happy that the quilt was so well-used that it needed to be restored.
The quilt received a new backing, binding, 2.5″ strip on the top perimeter.
I tied the quilt.
Sewed the original label back on plus a new label.
The quilt measures 84″ by 96″.
Since I want you all to still like me after making this quilt I decided that a little TIP was in order.
This is how I do mine and my DH thinks I am sane most of the time.
TIP includes info for the adult and baby quilts.

I am currently preparing patterns for several quilts that require a significant number of HSTs.
Here is a document that will help you make a significant number of HSTs from yardage.
I have a few, random HSTs left over from other projects but not enough for any of these projects I am working on.
Here is the strategy I developed for creating the number of HSTs I need.
You can use these ideas to make lots of HSTs in the same color combination and/or to make scrappy HSTs.
