    Navajo Rug quilts

    This is my first attempt to post pictures. I just finished the 2nd of 2 Navajo rug quilts which I am naming Teec Nos Pos I and II for the Navajo area styles that inspired them.

    I've never heard of Navajo rug quilts, but I really like this one! Does it have a destination, or are you just expanding your quilting experiences?

    I'd never heard of them either. What could you tell us about them? I can tell you this about what I know about this particular one... FABULOUS!!!

    Thank you all for the compliments. I am packing to return to CT, but I'll post some pictures showing how to make the blocks soon. They are really quite easy - there's a simple trick. You start with a diamond, add other colors on the sides, finish with wedges to make a block. Then you slice the block, rearrange the slices and sew them back together. A lot faster than weaving a rug!
