Here we are for another Throwback Thursday.
This quilt was made in 2008 for my mom. It is a lap quilt made with mostly civil war reproduction fabrics, the odd shirting, and a coupe larger florals. Although this wasn't a scrap quilt (I did not have a stash at that point) I included a couple of odd blocks with mismatched fabrics to add a bit of interest. You can see an example of this in the blue/beige nine patch block in the center of the photo where one of the four side squares is solid blue.
It is entirely quilted by hand, which was quite the undertaking, but at
the time, I did not have the skills to machine quilt, so this was
actually the "easy way"...
A couple of years ago, during a visit at my mom's very windy corner of the world, I decided to have a clothesline photo shoot! I knew these pictures would come in handy one day...
That was quite the wind, but the quilt did not fly off. In case you are wondering, the super duper clothespins are from Lee Valley . You're welcome ;).
Even though I am making more modern quilts these days do have a soft spot for all things vintage including 1930s and civil war reproductions. I still love this quilt as much as I did when I made it, and my mom does too!
Linking up with Jenn at A Quarter Inch from the Edge, and off to see other people's oldies!
