The First Second Legos Quilt

Remember Tonya's Legos quilt which is her reproduction of an antique quilt she loved? Several other quilters have made them, too (including me). I would have thought that we could call Tonya's quilt the "Second Legos Quilt" , the first being that antique quilt she admired.

Recently I was organizing pictures from the past year, and I came across the group of photos I took at a quilt show in tiny Park Rapids, Minnesota. Look at this! It's a Legos quilt! I think it pre-dates Tonya's quilt, so in reality, it's the First Second Legos quilt. Tonya's would be the Second Second.

I remember looking at this quilt and being amazed at all the little pieces. Now I've made one of my own that's even larger and has even more pieces. I never would have thought I'd do one. Mine is getting quilted next week, and I'm very excited to have it completed! Mine is about the 100th Second!

What a beautiful accomplishment to have made a quilt like this. You must be happy to get it quilted and have it completed. Way to go.

oh, this quilt is a beauty! interesting because there is a lot less variation in the size of the individual legos. seems like no matter how you do it, these come out fabulous!

Your quilts are lovely. I especially like the story about the Native baby quilts. Thank you for the book list too!
