There are times
when it's fun to look in the past
Perfect hair required being
tethered to a hose.
to carry your books home from school.
Listening to the top tunes
on your own transistor radio.
Recently, Barb at Fun With Barb, hosted a
swap with Churn Dash blocks.
It's a great little block that can
be sewn with any style of fabric
and set together in a variety of ways.
I thought I'd share today on
Throw back Thursday a Churn Dash quilt
I made in 1989.
It's still one of my favorites.
6" blocks set on point
with a alternating indigo blue square.
Back then I hand quilted everything
and generally used a solid for the backing.
Fabric styles have a changed a bit too.
VIP fabrics were very popular.
Jinny Beyer fabrics
were a major change from the small
calico prints you could still find.
Country blues and mauves,
definitely a popular color scheme.
If you've quilted for a few decades like me,
you might even recognize a print or two.
It's fun once in awhile to look
back and see how styles, tends, and ideas
Can't wait to start playing with some new
What to work on next!?!
Until Next Time-
