1991 3D Dahlia Quilt

This is the very first ‘real’ quilt I made – with templates and suchlike.  It was made in 1991 for Hester, when she was two years old, when we moved her to her new room downstairs just before Lydia was born.  I made those curtains, too.

Here is the matching 3D Dahlia runner for the toy box, still in good shape, although the quilt itself is quite worn.

It wasn't until I was putting the templates back into the pocket in my quilt book that I noticed what it said on the pattern title page:  "For experienced quilters only."

  1. This is beautiful and rather complicated for a first quilt. So that description on the pattern was almost an understatement.
