THROWBACK THURSDAY MARCH EDITION

It's Throwback Thursday week again -- 2016 is really flying by!!  Be sure to check out Quarter Inch from the Edge for the monthly TBT event when we get to show quilts from our past.

This quilt, entitled World Without End, was made in 2004; and was included in two of my books, "Traditional Two-Block Quilts" and on the cover of "Terrific Two-Block Quilts".  It is 36"x 36".


When I made the quilt, I remember struggling with choosing a border fabric.  Then I saw this fabric.
The design of the fabric was a perfect size with some fussy cutting to help extend the block pattern into the border.  It was nothing like I imagined.  Sometimes, a fabric just finds the quilt!!!

Something about this quilt reminds me of a native medicine wheel. I can't really say what exactly. Perhaps the colour palette. Thanks for linking up with Throwback Thursday @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!

Amazing how that border fit the quilt! I remember when there were lots of striped printed fabrics to make fussy-cut borders. It was challenging but fun to figure out how to use them. I liked the two-block quilts, too, and all of the secondary patterns that came out depending on what fabrics were used. Thanks for sharing!

It's a lovely quilt. I particularly enjoy looking at the fabrics and how the change over the years. Thank you for sharing.

I'm not sure you could have found a more perfect fabric for that border. I love how the blocks come together to give the appearance of a circular shape.

The way those blocks spill into the borders looks really interesting - I love the effect it has! Thanks for linking to MCM. :)
