TBT: Half Snowball Star Quilt

I had planned to share this Throw Back Thursday quilt last week for the 4th of July holiday but we were in the midst of our very "big" (yeah, not so much) wheat harvest and I didn't find the time. So here is my only patriotic quilt that I made probably 20 or more years ago.
Half Snowball Star Quilt Designed & Made By Thistle Thicket Studio.

I used some left over yardage and scraps I had from a couple of crafting projects to make this quilt. The block that creates the stars is a half snowball block. I saw a picture of a star quilt made with this block and decided to design my own quilt to use up some of my red and navy scraps. It was quilted by a long arm quilter who used a star meander pantograph. The quilt measures 67" x 74". I usually use this quilt to decorate my entryway for the 4th of July holiday but this year I never got around to doing any decorating. June flew by - where is the time going?!
