Our 1st quilt


Recently I lost everything saved in my computer. I was saddened by this since I had alot of pictures stored and my quilting log.
I was able to save some pictures on my flash drive but for some reason I was not able to save all.
Recently there was some blogging here and there about the first quilt made. Though this one pictured is not my first quilt , it is the first one I made for my husband and I.
The nine patches are made with reproduction fabrics and the rest is Kona snow. This was my first experience with Kona fabric and I instantly fell in love with it. I am so glad I used it all throughout the quilt and even the backing because it is so soft but yet durable.
It fits the top of my bed perfectly but it is not queen size.
It is my favorite quilt to snuggle under and I am thankful to still have it since this was one of the pictures I lost.

Oh Betsy, sorry to hear about your computer problems. I'm fortunate that my husband back ups and copies both house computers regularly.

Love the quilt........Mam

I love the quilt.
I am trying to convert The Scot to send his photos to an online album as well, it acts as a backup.

The quilt is beautiful. Thanks for the reminder that we need to back-up and save files periodically to another drive. I haven't done it in ages, so is on my list for this week.
