Throwback Thursday - October Edition

Where does the time go??  Jenn @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge recently started a monthly Throwback Thursday.  It's hard to believe this is the third edition.


Today's featured quilt goes back to 2011 -- thank goodness for the label; otherwise, I wouldn't have a clue.



Another quilt for nephew.  I don't know how many quilts I've made for him since I began quilting, but I'm covered for Throwback Thursday posts for many months to come.


Did everyone make a bugs-in-the-jar quilt?  It sounded like a good idea at the time.


This was clearly from the early days of learning to free motion quilt.  Thank goodness skills improve over time with practice.


 A wonderful stripey back.  I wish I had bought more.


Clearly, I was a terrible Auntie  -- no message on the label.  When I borrowed the quilt back, I thought perhaps the ink had faded.  But why not my signature.  Then my brain kicked in, and I remembered.  My sister had bought the fabric for me to make a quilt for Lorenzo.  So I left the label blank for her to write a message.  Clearly, she's the terrible mother.  LOL



Linking up for Throwback Thursday over at A Quarter Inch from the Edge.  Stop by and see what other past creations are showcased.

  4. What an awesome quilt for your nephew! At least you remembered to put a label on your quilt. I never remember to do that. If it wasn't for posting pictures to FB I would never remember when I did anything :)

  9. This is a goodie. I did make a type of bugs in a jar quilt, but it was a paper piecing nightmare where I made the bugs! and there were lizards and things too... Must look back in the book to see where that one ended up!

  11. I've never made a bugs in the jar quilt, but there might be one in my future depending on the interests of my grandson. I'm intrigued by your pictures because your jars actually seem to glow!
