Throwback Thursday: Eva Easy As 1, 2, 3

It's Throwback Thursday over at A Quarter Inch from the Edge.  I'd been trying to decide what to share while sorting out my scrap bin and came across the remains of an Eva charm and immediately knew what to share...

I made Easy as 1, 2, 3 back in 2010 before I started blogging using a pattern I designed myself.  It's based on the magic number theory and each unit contains 1 - 6 1/2" square, 2 - 3 1/2" squares and 3 - 2 1/2" squares.  It's a perfect way to use a layer cake!

I was definitely starting to be influenced by the modern quilting movement and went with a pieced back.  I love this little glimpse of each fabric.  This is also one of the first quilts I quilted on the longarm at Laurena's Longarm.  Today I'd probably just FMQ this on my domestic machine but back then I wouldn't have dared:-)

I wish I had more photos to share but I gifted to my husband's Aunt and Uncle for their 30th wedding anniversary.  It's such a treat to see it on their couch whenever we visit.

I love this collection by Basic Grey for it's pinks & greens so I used the scraps to make a mini stacked coins for myself.  I've got a plan for those scraps I found so expect to see something new from this collection soon;-)

Take a trip back to the past and check out what everyone else is sharing at this month's Throwback Thursday.


  1. I love that fabric! I made a baby quilt but maybe could make something for myself if I add some solids with the scraps....

  2. Isn't it nice when you're able to collect up enough scraps from a project you love to make a little something for yourself? Well done! Thanks for linking up with Throwback Thursday @ A Quarter Inch from the Edge!

  3. I love the Eva line! I've been collecting it since I started quilting in 2011 while in Germany. I made a quilt with it back in 2012 for a friend who was moving which made me love it even more!! Now I'm back to hunting for it any chance I get. Your quilts are beautiful!
