Tracy Chevalier
Tracy's First Quilt I was researching quilt making for a novel and decided I had to make one myself. After practicing on a couple of cushion covers, I made this lap quilt, using fabrics I'd collected from forays into quilt shops in the US and UK. All is hand pieced, hand sewn, hand quilted - I don't have a machine, plus I wanted to experience what my quilting character would have. It took about a year to make.
