Pssst.... just one week!

Until Throwback Thursday {Volume 10}!
On Thursday, May 5th, it's your chance to tell a tale from your dark, quilty past and show off a pre-blogging creation. It's amazing the inspiration you can take from these past quilts. I often imagine them in fresh, modern prints or re-done in crisp, bright Konas.

Along those lines, here's my Throwback for this week... From all the way back in 2005! I made SO many of these Thousand Pyramid quilts. In fact, the first ever Throwback Thursday post featured one!
I think I made this one for a co-worker's new grandbaby, hence the odd photo snapped in my office against my supply bookcase.
Some of these prints are still hanging around in my 2½ inch square scrap bin. And those butterflies... I bought an ungodly amount at (of all places) Walmart. Oh the folly of the beginner quilter!

Don't you just want to get out that fancy triangle ruler and start cutting into your scraps? Or even that yardage you've been hoarding? Come on. You know you want to!

Hope to see you next week for TBT {V.10}!



  1. A triangle quilt like this is definitely in my future. I have a bunch of fabric bought already for it. Now I need to see if it goes together. I like the blue and yellow color combination in this quilt.

  2. Oh, I really like that water ripply fabric in the center of the upper row of the last photo! I feel like I am struggling to find old quilts to talk about, but I will go look. :)

  3. I can't believe it is almost time for another TBT. I'm ready though. My husband brought home a quilt I had completely forgot about from his work last night. Score. And it's in the same color combination as your lovely triangle quilt above.

  4. Yay I might get to finally participate in TBT this time. i borrowed a quilt I finished for G's aunt that I never shared as a finish so can do that now!

  5. I'm itching to make a triangle quilt but I think I can do without that butterfly fabric in mine. :)

  6. I do love me a good triangle quilt. And the butterfly print is just right for the mix. Can't wait to see what everyone will be sharing next week!

  7. Oh I remember those days when Walmart had a fabric section....still true for the US but none in Canada. I do love the colour palette for this one. I really have to make a triangle quilt one of these days.
