Throwback Thursday and More Debbie Mumm Memories...

Well last week's photo shoot for Throwback Thursday included sunshine and blue skies... this week is gray and my lawn in soaking wet so I'll have to settle for photos in my living room. Ta-dah!! This blast from the past includes two of my favorite things... Stack N Whack blocks and Debbie Mumm!


Again every piece of fabric in this quilt is Debbie... she did lots of great striped fabric that were wonderfully suited to do Stack N Whack and I'm pretty sure all of these hexagons came from one fabric. I was particularly fond of Frank and he is featured in all four corners...





although somehow I only took pictures of 3 corners...damn that math stuff! And this was back in those halcyon days when I never thought she would stop designing fabrics and the entire back is a Debbie Mumm stripe...oh be still my beating heart!



Now this quilt is definitely older than the one I showed last week. It has minimal quilting in it...just stitched in the ditch around the hexagons and along that border stripe and I highly suspect that is has a polyester batting in it.


It is a still a fun quilt and right now I have it displayed in a little cabinet in my living room along with the pumpkin overflow...I do LOVE pumpkins!



I'm linking up again with Krista Quilt's Throwback Thursday which you can go check out here...and if you have a blog why don't you join the link up...the more the merrier.

happy stitching-

  3. Love your little yellow cabinet overflowing with the pumpkins (I love them, too). Used to LOVE Debbie Mumm and have a couple of stack n whacks myself.

  4. Very clever use of Halloween cats, witches, etc in the stack n whacks, they almost look fussy cut. Great job! Thanks for showing the back, so cute.

  5. What a fun quilt! I miss Debbie Mumm fabric. What happened to her? Did she move on to better things or just get tired? Thanks for sharing.
