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.
Today's quilt was a guild round robin from - I'm guessing - over ten years ago. We used to do one of these swaps every year, and this is the only one I've finished. It's still one of my favorite quilts, and is displayed in my home from Memorial Day until 9/11 every year along with several other patriotic quilts. I might love them more than Christmas quilts!
This was my center block. I found this toile patriotic fabric at JoAnn's and fell in love. (I later used it for the Hail to the Chief quilt.) You can also see this pitiful example of some of my very earliest FMQing. Although it is wobbly and, frankly, terrible, it's nice to see how far I've come. I'm proud of myself for even trying some of the things I did on this quilt. And, to be honest, even I don't notice anymore how bad it is unless I look very closely or take closeup pictures!
Around the last border, I quilted the words from The Liberty Song by John Dickinson.
Happy Independence Day to my American readers! I hope you all have a happy and safe weekend!
Now I want to see your blast from the past. Link up and let us all see! P.S. Did you know that you can use pictures from your Instagram feed with InLinkz now?
