1989.  I had  no idea what I was doing.  I was 26 years old.  I had pieced on a paper with my grandmother 14 years ago.  I had survived Home Ec at age 13, actually wearing the dress I created without disaster.  But my amazing husband gave me a sewing machine for Christmas, sew... I wanted to use it.  I didn't know fabric, I didn't know traditional patterns.  I just played around.  2012 - this thing is still out and in use -  almost everyone that has put their butt on my couch in front of the TV has grabbed this thing to cover up.  It is not quilted and I've only had to retie it once.  I love this quilt top.

Awesome.  These heavily used quilts are the best.  How many more have you done since?  Looks like this one could use an added boarder and it's ready to go another decade or two.  That's the great thing about quilts,  a cherished one like this can be repaired and go on and on.
