My first ever quilt...

When I was a child I tried lots of different crafts. I think I had every Dryad craft starter kit available; quilling, candle making, calligraphy, paper making, weaving, embroidery... None of them ever quite kept my attention.

Then, when I was thirteen, I told my Mother I wanted to make a patchwork quilt. She was very supportive but - quite sensibly - suggested I begin with a cushion cover. Out of pure stubbornness I ended up making a double quilt. By hand. It took me a year.
