One of my first sewing projects when I was six years old was making nine patch quilt squares.
I really enjoyed digging through Mom's boxes filled with fabric scraps and make fun color combinations for each one.
The completed squares were tucked away until the winter before we got married and I finally turned them into a quilt top. Mom and I spent many hours that winter quilting my first quilt. It's nothing fancy, but with all the memories that got sewn into this quilt it is one of my favorites.
