UNM Law Log Cabin {Throwback Thursday}

In 2010, I wanted to make a quilt for my brother-in-law. He was back in school (law school) at the University of New Mexico (UNM), and he and my sister-in-law (my husband's sister) were enjoying going to Lady Lobo basketball games. The UNM school colors are red and gray, which (legend says) happened to be colors of primer that...

Fall is Coming – Throwback Thursday

In August 2010, I went fabric shopping with my mother-in-law to pick out fabrics for a lap quilt that I planned to make for her and my father-in-law. I had talked to them in advance, and they had agreed on a color palette. It was a lot of fun to go fabric shopping and help start to take their...

Throwback Thursday

In 2011, I made this lap quilt for my aunt (in law) who loves the color purple. I had wanted to make something for her for a while, but I struggled to find great purple fabrics that were not too patterned and childish. After contemplating for a while, I decided to add yellow into the mix. But honestly, I...

Throwback Thursday

Today for Throwback Thursday, Jenn suggested we share makes of Christmas past. I don't have any specifically "holiday" made quilts, but this quilt was gifted during the holiday season of 2008 and was the first quilt I had made in years. This quilt kicked off a slow, steady progression of quilt making that has evolved directly to where I...

Throwback Thursday – Table Runner

I really like Jenn @A Quarter Inch from the Edge's Throwback Thursday link up. It has me going back and thinking about my early quilting work, and seeing how much progress I have made as a quilter is pretty cool. Today I want to share a table runner that I made for my in-laws circa 2004. For the most part,...

Throwback Thursday

My friend Jenn @A Quarter Inch From the Edge is launching a new monthly link up party today called Throwback Thursday. Have you been quilting longer than you've been blogging? What about all those quilts that have never seen the light of day in the blogosphere? Just think of them, people. The good, the bad, the ugly. You know they're...

Throwback Thursday – College Rainbow Quilt

I was leafing through some old photo albums this morning when I found a photograph of a quilt I made in college. It was the first quilt I made using my first sewing machine - a Viking / Husqvarna Freesia 415 that I used until last year. I chose to tie this quilt, and it seemed to hold up...
