Throwback Thursday Vol. 2

So the quilt I picked for Throwback Thursday Vol. 2 edition is the first quilt I finished. My last Throwback Thursday showed the first quilt top I had finished. This is the first quilt I completed from start to end. It is my Indigo Weave quilt.


Completed Summer of 2013.

This quilt is one I made for myself. I love the blue, gold and beige prints in this quilt. And this is a quilt I still currently own! I give so many of my quilts away that I really don't have many at home. But this one is too special for me to part with.


Me all wrapped up in it.

The stitching on this one is in the ditch. This is also the only quilt I have ever binded by hand (and hopefully the last!). I learned a lot from this quilt. How to make and attach binding. I actually binded it by machine first but the stitching was terrible! So I seam ripped it all out and then did the binding by hand....this is the reason why I bind all my quilts with a decorative stitch ;)

Well I've enjoyed this trip down memory lane and now it's time to take a break for an ice cream :) Trying to enjoy the rest of the summer!

Linking up with Jenn @ Quarter Inch from the Edge for Throwback Thursday!


Thanks for stopping by :)
