Throwback Thursday, August 13

 REMEMBERING

When my daughter went off to college I was just learning how to do English paper piecing.  I did not want to try out a big project, so I made the tumbling blocks, which reminded me of her baby blocks.  When I found this stiriped piece in the exact colors and size I needed, it was easy to appliqué several of them on and hand quilt it, with lines indicating the shadows of the blocks.  It became
MY BABY’S GONE AND LEFT ME.

Now, over 30 years later it hangs on my bathroom wall, where I can enjoy it daily.  I just finished a rainbow quilt for her daughter, now entering the big world of high school.  The title remains appropriate.
I link up with RSC15 at superscrappy.blogspot.com, Sew Cute Tuesday at blossomheartquilts.com and Throwback Thursday at kristaquilts.blogspot.com.   Please check out what others have done.

  1. I like what you did with those blocks, and the name seems very appropriate. My “baby” just left me last September, and he too took a quilt with him. It wasn't named nearly so appropriately, however 🙂 Thanks for linking up at Throwback Thursday.
