Here is a photo of my first quilt, which I call "Bubble Gum." It's a traditional sampler quilt that I made in my very first class, but even back then I had "modern tendencies." I choose the black and white to give the quilt a gritty, urban feel (the gray inner border reminds me of oil-stained asphalt) and added the pink to represent bubble gum -- the kind you find used on the pavement. I remember being so afraid to actually cut the fabric for the blocks, but once I started cutting and sewing, I was hooked.
And the back!
