Throwback Thursday, September 17

Here is the third of my Lights series of wall hangings made about 25 years ago.  This quilt required more additions such as ribbons.  I even went to my favorite thrift shop and found a silk sheath dress from the sixties to cut up for the leaf motif.  The dress was only one dollar.
These quilts were designed completely on my design wall, adding one piece at a time, then stepping way back to see the effect.  I learned a lot about how colors behave when combined, and this has been most useful for me ever since.


Next week I will be sharing a totally different kind of series.  I appreciate Krista for giving us this chance to share these good older projects.

I link up with RSC15 at, Sew Cute Tuesday at and Throwback Thursday at 


  1. That's beautiful. You did a fabulous job with all of your "lights" quilts, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for us next. Thanks for linking up at Throwback Thursday today.

  2. wonderful fabrics etc in this and although you did it years ago it does not look old fashioned or dated at all Of course they are my favourite colours too.

  3. this is an exciting piece. The mix of textures and colors, lights and darks on the diagonal. Great piece. LeeAnna
