TBT ~ The Way Back Files

I unearthed some ancient quilts while cleaning closets. I think this one was the second quilt I ever made. It was with leftover poly/cotton pieces from the first. It’s only about 20 inches square.

Here’s another very early piece. Somewhere, I had gotten these pieces of decorator fabric samples. Clearly, it could have benefited from more quilting!

I made this for Mr. Wonderful and he had it hanging in his office for too many years.

I think this was my first (and maybe last?) quilt made from following a magazine pattern.

This is the newest of this bunch. I was finally finding my style.

I’m not sure what to do with these. I wouldn’t use any, except possibly the tumbler. They take up space, but I can’t quite bear to throw them out or drop them at the thrift shop.

It is good to look back and see how far I’ve come. Have a great day!

    I think the Amish one would work for you too. Maybe start a small quilt wall if you don’t have one already. Or like someone else said roll them up and put in a basket. It’s fun to see some of your early work. Hugs,

  4. I’ve taken some of my older minis, rolled them up, put them in a basket or pitcher, and used them in my decorating. They still get displayed, but just a pop of color rather than the whole quilt. Love the thimbles quilt with those deep, vibrant colors!
