Throwback Thursday - (I know it's Saturday!)

Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Yes, I know it's Saturday. I'm a little behind this week. Oops!

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.

  1. There's nothing quite like the challenge of only having a limited amount of fabric! And the fun of sourcing fabric on-line! Thanks for linking up with Throwback Thursday @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge! I know not everyone has time to post on Thursday... that's why the linky stays open all week-end. :)

  2. Great job finding the coordinating fabric! Love the graphic design!

  3. Oh I like the idea of sharing something that you made pre-blogging .... Wonderful that you found some other fabric and that your Mum still loves the quilt. I think that's the best part of being a quilter isn't it - when someone else loves it?!

  4. Going on a fabric hunt can be a scary thing. My worst fear is not being able to find something. But it looks like your hunt was quite successful. And to know that she still talks about it and uses it, is the best quilting complement to can get.

  5. Love the green fabric. Ties the quilt together beautifully!

    1. Thanks so much, Amanda! I agree, the green fabric really ties it all together. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. What a beautiful quilt. I love how much she appreciates what you made.
