Throwback Thursday

I’ve been working away on Quilts of Valor this week and will share a couple of those finishes tomorrow. Today I will share a couple quilts made before my blogging days. The first one is hand quilted so you know it’s old! 

And yes, that one patch was intentional. I usually hang this so it is in one of the bottom corners. I get a twisted pleasure out of watching people when they notice it, somewhat afraid to ask if I realize I did that or not.

This next one was mostly hand appliquéd. It was machine quilted on my 1955 Singer Model 201.

 You can see here why I stay away from applique!

 My piecing skills are better.

 I like to think of this as folk art :).

Have a great day! Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation.

    They are so pretty! And I totally get why you did that. It’s kinda fun sometimes to watch them squirm! lol…awesome!

    I don’t think your appliqué looks that bad, especially if you apply the 20-20 rule. 😎 I am not all that much into appliqué anyway, but I don’t have any confidence that my work would look even remotely like it was supposed to. So I stick with pieced blocks.
