For those who are following along with my quilt count, we are now onto my 5th quilt… 🙂
I made this quilt at my first ever quilt retreat at Camp Lebanon. That was in November of 2002 and I have now attended more than 20 retreats since then.
Let me introduce you to my quilt number 19. This fabric was actually posted as a kit with another pattern. I bought it because I loved the fabric, but not necessarily the pattern so I was very happy when I found the Gone Country quilt pattern in an Issue of Quilting and Embroidery magazine.
This calendar quilt, named Strolling Down the Block, was the 18th quilt I started working on. I say started working on because I started it in January of 2003 but didn’t finish it until the middle of 2004 so I did finish some other quilts before this one was done.
My 15th quilt was made from a pattern from The Buggy Barn named Heart Crazies (sorry, this quilt looks like it is no longer available). I made this in March of 2004 at the same quilt retreat that I made Katie’s Graduation Memory Quilt. Because Katie’s quilt was going to be a surprise, I chose to also make this quilt so I would have something to show off when I got home.
Ready to see the 7th quilt I made, way back in November of 2002? Don’t you just love the fun Wizard of Oz fabrics?
This Wizard of Oz quilt was actually the very first quilt kit I ever bought. I believe it was also my first visit to one of my favorite quilt shops, Bay Window Quilt Shop. Can I blame them that I now have an entire cupboard full of quilt kits (hahaha)?
First of all, let me apologize for the poor quality photo of this quilt. Keep in mind, though, that this picture was taken with a digital camera in late 2002. The quality of cameras and print outs back then weren’t quite up to today’s standards.
