Throwback Thursday is a fun linky party hosted by Jenn from Quarter Inch From the Edge. Every first Thursday of the month she hosts a linky party where you can link up a past finish. You know, one of the projects you made before you started blogging or documenting your quilting journey; back when all your photos were grainy and shadowy... maybe those are just my photos. ;)
This is my first time linking up and I'm sharing this quilt I made for my mom back in 2013.
My mom, who is not a quilter, was with me browsing around a quilt store's clearance section and she picked out a fat quarter of the print in the setting triangles. After a little more digging we found a matching FQ but that was it. She looks at me and says,"You can make a quilt out of that, right?" Ummm... just two long lost, lonely fat quarters. Sure... maybe. I mean, she really liked the fabric and how could I say no to my mom.
I did some research and I was able to find some matching and coordinating fabric. Hooray!!! Those two lonely fat quarters turned out to be from a collection called Royal Garden by Maywood Studios.
I think the final dimensions were something like 52" x 72". My mom didn't want a lot of quilting so I did some stitch-in-the-ditch. Nothing fancy, but she loves it. I'm happy to say that she still raves about how much she loves her quilt and she keeps it in her den/office all year round.
