I started my very first quilt when I was 11 years old. I didn't know I was using a (defective) toy sewing machine so the quilt fell apart almost immediately. Skip ahead18 years and I started another one but life got in the way and I boxed up the semi-finished blocks and fabric and put it all away. Two weeks ago I was emptying the last box from my move 8 months ago and guess what I found? Sitting at the bottom of a box marked "dishes" was my box of quilt blocks and fabric from 30 years ago! I thought they were lost in one of my many moves over the years. There are so many memories attached to these blocks that I stopped the stash buster quilt I started recently and am working to finish it. I'll post a photo of it when it's done.
