#TBT - Throwback Thursday - Pinwheel Sensations

Quiltin Jenny

It's Throwback Thursday here at Quiltin' Jenny, and I hope you'll link up and share your own creative adventures from your pre-blogging days.

Four generations and I'm the only one with no curls
Back in 2004 we hauled the whole family to New York to celebrate my grandmother's 90th birthday, on Halloween.  It was an extra special celebration, because it was also just a few weeks before my grandparents' 65th wedding anniversary.

On top of that, we were celebrating a little baby boom.  Clare had just been born on October 7, and Danny was born October 21. 

As if all that weren't enough, my cousin Gina had just found out she was having twins!  (I'll show you their quilts later.)

So, in addition to all my kids and their Halloween costumes, we also brought two baby quilts with us.  I showed you Clare's quilt last week, and this week is all about Danny.

I made this dimensional pinwheel quilt out of the P.S. I Love You Two book.  I absolutely adore how this came out.  I did do machine quilting on this one, but it was just wiggly lines in the sashing.  Obviously you can't quilt over those pinwheels!

The pictures didn't come out, but I made a super cute label with a handwritten pinwheel in all different colored Pigma pens with his name in the middle.  It said:

Wish for Danny's bright future.
Hope for Danny's happy life.
Pray for Danny's peaceful world.
Dream of Danny's perfect mate.
Believe in Danny's unique purpose.

Now I want to see your blast from the past.  Link up and let us all see!
