#TBT - Throwback Thursday - Radiant Star

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.

It's my wonderful MiL's birthday this week, so I thought I'd show you the quilt I made for her in 1998.

I took a Radiant Star class with Sami Koenig at Calico Quilter in Roswell, the shop where I took my beginning quilting class and several others.  In both my beginner class and this class, we used the book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes. 


This was the class where I learned about bias edges and Y seams. 


I was only hand quilting at this point, and found a pretty shape to quilt in the corner squares and setting triangles. 


Here you can see the quilt hanging in their old house, above Mabel

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