Do you have those weeks when life happens and you just can't get into the sewing room to quilt?  That happened this week, so there is nothing new quilt-wise to report.  When that occurs, I can always pull out a quilt from the closet to show you.
 This is a little wall quilt, called Fandango, that I made in 1992.  It is machine pieced, hand quilted, and is 24" square.
It is made up of three different block patterns to produce secondary designs.
At the time, I was exploring and designing quilts that combined different blocks in one quilt.  This quilt and the pattern is published in the book, "Quilt Blocks X 9" by Bobbie Aug and Sharon Newman.
It's fun to look back and see all of the wonderful fabrics that were just exploding on the quilt scene at the time.  Among my favorites were all of the Jinny Beyer border prints.  To this day, they are still wonderful to use to frame a quilt.

Thanks for taking a look into my quilting past!

That's a fun share. :) I was just thinking that I need to pull out my oldest quilts and get them recorded.

I thought I recognized that border as Ginny's. I have a little piece of a grey and burgundy one left. This is a lovely quilt. I'm surprised how much it looks like the era you made it in. (did that make sense??)
