Tiny Quilt beginnings. This was the first tiny quilt I made, probably circa 1980. It was for my little sister's dollies. Scraps and piecing were all I knew in those days. Who didn't have scrap fabric back then? Mom taught me to sew my own clothes in elementary school. We had a big pine chest full of leftover fabric that could barely close. One didn't purchase new fabric for a quilt. I thought the definition of a quilt was small pieces of scrap fabric sewn together. The 80's are over, thank goodness.
