I'm joining A Quarter Inch from the Edge (click here) for Throwback Thursday where we are encouraged to dig in our dusty quilt archives and find a quilt from our past.
I made this quilt in 1986 (yes, that is almost 30 years ago); it is machine pieced, hand quilted, and measures 78"x 98" -- big enough for a queen-sized bed. This quilt was pictured in an article I wrote, "Pizzazz with Stripes" for Quiltmaker Magazine Issue #62.
A friend of mine, who was raised on a Navajo reservation, named it Nizonih Sq; which means Navajo Beautiful Star.
I still have this quilt somewhere in the stacks of quilts; and probably should pull it out for a new photo shoot. These pictures are 1986 variety, also; and colors are a bit off.
The browns were all from my scrap stash at the time -- I see that I was heavy on the dots. I'm sure I was a bit ditsy myself, as I still had kids at home back in those days!!
