Throw Back Thursday: Olfa’s 35th Anniversary

Some time ago Kelli and I were asked to join the celebration of Olfa’s 35th Anniversary.  In doing so we were asked to make a block for a quilt that was going to be put together to celebrate.

I am always curious to see how the projects come together and was delighted when I say Stitch by Stitch’s blog showing the quilt in it’s entirety.  Kathy-o was the machine quilter of this beauty and has several pictures to share.

Our block is the 4th row over and the 4th one down.  The VERY black one.  Don’t you think the person who put the quilt top together did an awesome job of setting and color selection??  I sure do.  I think it’s a big challenge to bring blocks together that other people have sewn.

You can see more pictures by following this Pinterest link and more from Sherri over at A Quilting Life.


Anyway it was fun to be a part of this collaboration quilt.   If you want a link to our free printable pattern block, you can find it here.

  1. Nice Honor! My MIL bought me my first Olia ruller and mat. I had no idea how to use it. I had made 1 quilt at that time. I took a class. I have to say I was not really very comfortable w it. But such a difference to cut out blocks than mark each triangle and cut out w 1/4″ seam allowance. Revolutionary!
