Throwback Thursday

Good Morning! I am still working on Quilts of Valor, so I thought I’d show a few of my very first minis. These were all made by me back in the mid 1990’s. All were published in QUILT magazine but I am too lazy to dig through and find out which ones. This first one is all hand pieced and quilted. It measures 13 inches by 16 inches. 


This little star quilt is also hand pieced and quilted. I remember working on it when Daughter #1 was at dance class so she must have been four or five. This measures 15 inches by 17 inches. The color is sadly off in these photos!  Imagine 30’s green and bubble gum pink!

My Sunbinnet Sue measures 18 by 21 inches. Each Sue is 3 inches tall. I shrunk the pattern to fit the vintage fabric swatches that I had. It is also all done by hand. 

You can tell I was smitten with 30s repros fabrics! Hope you enjoyed this look back. Have a great day!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    I love Sunbonnet Sue. I just repaired a full size Sunbonnet Sue quilt made by my husband’s Grandmother in 1928. It is such a sweet and timeless pattern.
