My very first quilting project was a poor little fidget quilt a made for my then 91 year old grandmother who has dementia.  Though her hands must always stay busy, she didn't want to play with it...she wanted to put it on the wall.  The little quilt itself was rather ugly, made out of cheap ugly fabric..it was my very second completed sewing project EVER.  But it did NOT belong on the wall. 

But...I decided I would make something that would.  She now had a blank wall where my grandfather and aunts pictures once hung, only they had long passed and it pained her too much to have them up.  I left her house and went straight to the fabric store!

So this was my first actual quilt.  Roughly 36 x 36 wall quilt now hangs on my 92 year old grandmothers wall.  I saw a picture of this on Pinterest and drew a pattern.  It was my first go at free motion quilting and handing minding, also.

I am quite proud of this!
