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″.

You can use these ideas to make lots of HSTs in the same color combination and/or to make scrappy HSTs.
