Whether you’ve just started quilting or you’ve been quilting longer than you’d care to admit, we all have one proud moment: the day that we cut, pieced, and pressed our very first quilt block. Think back to your first time and tell us:

What was the first quilt block you ever made?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, April 7, for your chance to win. The carefully selected winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, April 9, along with the next question.

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “What other activities do you like to do while you’re quilting?” Here’s the winning comment, from Kathy:

“While quilting, I like to do…nothing else at all! I enjoy the quiet time in my own head, the rhythm of cutting, the hum of my machine, the warmth rising from the iron as I press, the scent of the starch…ahhhh! I keep a notepad close at hand in case other thoughts intrude or inspirations occur.  My quiet time quilting is the best part of my day!”

Congratulations, Kathy—look for an email about your free eBook.
