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 The Pit Boss's birthday on Sunday, so I thought I'd share the only quilt I ever made just for him. Which is sad, now that I think about it, because there is no one more important to me!
I found this flannel panel and the coordinating fabrics at a wonderful shop in Dahlonega, Georgia called Magical Threads. (They have knitting supplies as well.) I took it all on retreat with me one year around 2002 when my BQF Pam and I went to the Quilter's Rescue Mission, now called Quilting in Toccoa.
It was super simple - just borders around the panel. I did some of my earliest FMQing in the gold border and in the panel. I wasn't sure how to quilt the sky, so I chose an imaginary point behind the house where I pictured the setting sun and quilted radiating lines out from there.
TPB has always dreamed of living out the country on a lot of land with fewer people around. That is not exactly how our life has turned out! I called this quilt His Cabin in the Woods since it is looking less and less like he will ever get a real one. Sorry, Honey!
This quilt still lives on the back of our couch and is the go-to quilt when someone is feeling sick, grouchy, or otherwise pitiful and needs comfort.
Now I want to see your blast from the past. Link up and let us all see!
