Throwback Thursday

Here are a few more finds from my recent closet cleaning. This Elongated Hexagon was hand pieced from Civil War Repro scraps. It is probably close to 10 years old.

 It is machine quilted on my 1955 vintage Singer 201. It is a great machine for free motion work. Here is the back.

I really love this backing fabric and I pieced in this corner to have enough to use for the back  (see above). Feathers in the border and a 60 degree cross hatch in the body of the quilt.

You can really see the texture in this quilt taken in the sun! And the wrinkles too. Sorry about that!

This one is newer. It was made as part of a challenge on the Yahoo Small Quilt Talk group. This is one of my favorite small quilts.

Feathers and cross hatch again!
  The quilting shows better here.

And here.

This is the back.

I need to find places to hang these two again. I still like them after all these years!

Linking up with A Quarter Inch From The Edge for Throwback Thursday

    I can understand why you still like them, they are beauties! Makes me want to dig out all my quilts and look through them, but I really need to finish a quilt today, so maybe I’ll do that as a reward when I’m done!

    Love both of these quilts!! Civil War Repro fabrics are my favorites! The elongated hexie quilt is great…but I really, really like those stars!! The border fabric on that one just pulls everything together!! And the quilting is great on each quilt! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  6. Oh yum! What adorable quilts. I love looking back at reproduction quilts from 10 or more years to see if I still have some of those fabrics! These two are wonderful!

    Do you sign and date your quilts, Katy?

  8. It’s fun to see what you’ll pull out of your closet Katy. 🙂 I like both quilts, but those elongated hexagons really grabbed my attention.
