Psst... it's just a week away.

Throwback Thursday {Volume 8} is just one week away - Thursday, March 3rd!
Once again, it'll be your chance to link up a project from your dark, quilty past. Here's a little TBT inspiration for you - a New York Beauty wall hanging that I made back in the Summer of 2005. These pics are a testament to outdoor photo shoots. They're among the best I have from this era! Mind you, flopping it on the ground might not have been my finest hour of quilt styling.
Can you believe these colours? I can't say that I have much like this in my stash anymore. But that navy is a solid, so some things don't change!
Every time I take a good look at one of these TBT quilts, I get to thinking about how much fun it would be to re-make it in modern prints and colours. Can you envision a New York Beauty in Carolyn Friedlander or Cotton + Steel? I can!
 I even FMQed the name of the quilt (and it's recipients) into the binding. How's that for dedication?
And if showing off your past projects wasn't enough, we've got a giveaway from a new sponsor, Dinky Doo Modern Fabrics. If you're into modern pre-cuts, you've got to check them out!

See you next Thursday!



  1. This is so beautiful. I just printed out a pattern for a NYB block. I figure I can make one block to see how it goes.

  2. And I still flop quilts on the ground for their photo opportunities!

  3. How fun! I love the colors and could definitely see this in modern fabrics!:)

  4. Hi! This is great but colours are also not mine. Should we remember that early days our stash was poor and at least I used what ever fabrics found from home. I can't by good fabrics from here. We learn many things with quilting, like photographing. x Teje

  5. I still flop things on the ground! Some of us haven't learned much since 2005! :)
    I wait for a dry, sunny day so the quilt doesn't get muddy. We have lots of dry, sunny days.
