Some of my first quilts

This is the 2nd quilt I ever made, it's a bargello. I gave it to my mother-in-law, she loves it and was my inspiration to start quilting.

This is the next quilt I made, it's a double Irish, I made it for my Grandma, she liked it so much, I think it was one thing that made her want to quilt as well. She is now my quilting buddy.

The next is also a double irish, I made it for my younger brother. I made it in 16 hours, I had a timeline to get it done and quilted for my parents to take to him in California.

This one is called Stars-n-Stripes, I made this one but didn't have any plans with it. I ended up trading it with a relative for a handmade saddle planter. It was well worth it.


  1. Oh my goodness, woman, who makes a bargello for their second quilt?!? It is beautiful. You really jumped in to quilting with both feet!
    I love the Irish Chain quilts. Traditional patterns like this are my favorites. When I zoomed in on your Stars-and-Stripes I could recognize the calicoes--having used many a purple in my time. : )
    Great quilts, Charity!

  2. Love the Black and Yellow Irish Chain.
    And a Bargello for your second quilt,very brave.....
