Well, what the heck happened to Thursday???? Thursday totally went by me without a single thought that it was Throwback Thursday and time to post some more of my vintage quilts. So I’ll do a Throwback Thursday on Friday this week.
Here are 3 more vintage quilts I made during 1988. As you can see, I was continuing my skill building journey as I began working with more pieces. Again, I’m not sure where they went, if I sold them or gave them as gifts. I should have kept better records.
This first quilt is called “Streak of Lightning”. Simple half triangles which I cut and sewed piece by piece. I now know how to make this block using full squares and making 2 blocks at once. Practice does make perfect!
This next quilt is the same as above but different arrangement. It is also called “Streak of Lightning”. I think this pattern now has a more updated name “Chevron”. Notice I also made a matching pillow. Getting creative! If you compare these 2 quilts with a newer quilt I made last year, they’re the same quilt block. A simple placement adjustment makes it look like an entirely different quilt.
This last quilt is simply called “Bars”, taken from an familiar Amish Pattern. Remember this quilt as you will be seeing some special quilts using this pattern which I plan on posting the end of May for Memorial Day. Special Quilts for Special People.
I’m not making anything this week in preparation for a visit next week with my son and his family. Lots of cleaning, food prep and anticipation. I can’t wait to meet my grandson, Domenic Jack, now 10 months old!!!
