Peripheral Polyester Prairie Points

Peripheral polyester prairie points. Say that, ten times, fast! This powerful polyester piece would be perfectly pleasant without the edge finish and ties, but those elements really make this quilt special. It's something you don't see every day, especially in polyester double knit. c. 1970s, 83" x 100", from Texas. Enjoy the pictures!!


  1. Fabulously simple! This quilt can dance. Prairie points, at the edge, doing a little jig beyond the wide border. And the steady beat of those ties, running counterpoint to the diagonal colors. Terrific. Great addition to the pretty-poly collection.

  2. Wow! So graphic and modern!! Love it!
