My Earlier Quilts

My first quilts consisted only of tapestry scenes with corresponding color borders around them. I started at 14 years old while staying with my aunt for the summer, so the tapestry-type of quilts with a fleece fabric backing were perfect for a beginner. Also, being that I was a beginner; I didn't quilt together any of these earlier quilts, I just tacked them together. That was the same age I was when I made all of these following quilts. I made a horse/cowboy one for my friend Stephanie, two Dale Earnhardt ones (one for Justin and one for my little cousin, Tyler), and one other for an older school friend. That school friend bought all the fabric for me and she wanted a queen-size dolphin blanket made with it. She ended up buying way too many tapestry scenes and now I'm left with about 5 extra that I have no idea who to make them for.

The following baby quilt looks like it took me a lot more time than it really did. It looks like I pieced it all together, but actually the top f this quilt only had four pieces to it. The bandanas that I found at Hobby Lobby to make this quilt are non-existent now, which was unfortunate for me when I found out that I was pregnant because I wanted to make a replica of that baby quilt for my baby. If you look at the pattern really close, you can tell where each of the bandanas are at(each f the four corners). It was really a simple quilt to make. This quilt was also tacked together instead of quilted, just like the rest of my earlier quilts.

I turned the corner down for this picture so the fleece design on the back could be shown:
