#TBT - Throwback Thursday - Kaleidoscope Dreams

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.

Today's quilt was made in 2000 for my cousin's oldest child, a boy who is three weeks older than Grace. This is my cousin who is the same age as me. It is so much fun to watch history repeat itself as they see each other about once or twice a year, but fall immediately into the last conversation and game from last summer just like his dad and I used to do.

The big news around here, though, is that their family is moving to Atlanta next week just in time to celebrate their birthdays together! We could not be more excited.

This quilt, which I called Kaleidoscope Dreams back before I used that name for my true kaleidoscope quilt, was a kit from Calico Quilter, the long-gone quilt shop where I learned to quilt. I thought the colors were just fantastic, and it pieced together so quickly.

I hand quilted it in orange thread - the first time I can remember making a choice for my quilting to be more visible.

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


  1. What a fun quilt. I love the colors.

  2. This quilt is so cheerful with all of those bright colors, Jenny! Hope you have as wonderful Birthday celebration with them and will be able to hang out a lot in the future!


Thanks for joining the conversation!
