A Trunk Show--

Soma of Whims and Fancies is having a virtual trunk show. What a great idea! There are even prizes besides all the wonderful eye candy one can see.  Here are a few of mine:
First Quilt of Valor:
Quilted by another QOV volunteer.

 First Home of the Brave quilt
 Given to Don Beld to pass on to a soldier's family.

 First commission quilt I made. This was a baby quilt requested by my neighbor.

 First Service Star quilt for a family who at the time had three sons in the Service.

 First BOM quilt.  This was a Beth Ferrier mystery quilt. I made it for my daughter's 35th birthday.  It took me two years.

 First pillow cover I made.  Went to my Mom. She has it on her sofa.

 First cancer patient quilt.  I asked for blocks from my Guild for a fellow quilter. Then I took the blocks and made a top and quilted it. This was the first time I made a different border of my chosing.

You can see more trunk shows by going to Soma's link party here:

 Show and Shares are my favorite part of guild membership, and trunk show are my favorite lectures.  At Soma's I get to go see quilt collections any time I like!  Share with us. I'd love to see your quilts.

I agree. Showing your "firsts" was a great way to choose which quilts to show. They are all beautiful and the recipients all so lucky.

I am sure every these quilts are happy with their new owners and what a great way to bring some warmth to those who could use a hug! Although it's hard to pick a favorite the cancer quilt stands out for me. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sharing all your "firsts." This leads me to believe that they were followed by many others, which means there are a lot of happy people using quilts you made.
