I’ve mentioned a few times that my first sewing project was a quilt my Gram helped me with. She is the one who gave me a sewing machine. I don’t have a photo tutorial – this was over 10 years ago that I made it, but I thought it would make for a great share. :)
It’s far from perfect. I think that’s why I feel so comfortable bringing it along for sitting on, for fireworks and picnics. It has enough mistakes that I don’t mind it getting a little bit dirty. The only way it’s really going to last has nothing to do with the craftsmanship and quality – it’s the photos of me and my family, sitting on it or wrapped up in it, enjoying time together, year after year.

I appliqued the letters and the flag panel on by hand. By hand! LOL. I didn’t know that there were any easier ways. :) I actually created my own stencils for the letters – so that’s my real block handwriting. So this is special and personal to me in so many ways.

Do you have any really sentimental projects? Tell me in the comments! If you’ve even blogged about it, leave a link and I’d love to come out and see it!
I link up to these great parties!
