My first quilts…

18 02 2011

I bought one of those little slide/film negative scanners today. After figuring out how to work it (instructions were terrible!) — and after finding my stash of negatives — I started the VERY long project of scanning in all my old negatives. This could take years… I have over 3000 negatives from my year in Canada alone!

Anyhow, some of the first bundles of negatives I pulled out happened to have pictures of the first-ever quilts I made back in the late 1980s (I think I made my first quilt in 1987). And also some photos of some tapestries I did before I got into quilts (I made them some time between 1979 and 1985, though I have no idea when exactly).

Here they are (click a small image to see a larger version of it)…

Very astute observers might recognise some of the fabrics in the log cabin quilt — I had plenty left over and used some of them 20 years later in my Challenge 28 quilt!
