It's time for Throwback Thursday Vol. #4 over at A Quarter Inch from the Edge with Jenn. I am joining in the linky to show a quilt from my past....completed in September of 1998 to be exact. I don't think I ever blogged about this one before. It has been hiding in a bin under my bed with several other small quilts from that time frame. I pulled it out this morning and quickly tacked it up on the wall to get a photo.
The pattern, "Times and Seasons" is from the 1998 Piecemaker's calendar. The original pattern had appliqued corner triangles but I chose to be different and make it an octagon shape. I remember that I traced all the pattern pieces on cereal box cardboard. Techniques included are hand applique (needle turn method), piecing with templates, a bit of paperpiecing, reverse applique. There was also a bit of embellishment happening with buttons and some embroidery stitches. It is handquilted by me. It measures 60" square, if it was a square! It hung in my living room for several years before it got relegated to the bin under the bed.
Here's a few closeups......

Hope you get time to do some quilting today!
