My First Quilt

I made this years ago, with a severely limited supply of fabric. I think a couple of the fabrics aren't even cotton, and I had to use a lot of plain fabrics, including a white damask for the backing. It's a sawtooth star, hand pieced and quilted, design by Lisa Johnson from Australian Country Craft 2-5.
