Like a loose bobbin come with me as I wind through the twists and tangles of quilting

Thinking about what the first post should be made me think about the concept of starting. There's a thought. Starting your first quilt...starting a new project...starting to design...just starting. So here is a start to my blog. How many of you still have the first quilt that started you on the road of becoming a quilting aficionado? I only have a picture. Here it is!
I wish I had kept it. The book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes was my "teacher". It was constructed from left over dress fabrics, tied and not exactly square. That was in 1993.
After a few more "starts" and some encouragement from family and friends I started to show some progress.
Now some 18 years later I think I have the hang of this quilting thing. Here is one of my more recent "starts" that I finished.
