Welcome to Navajo Threads


"Navajo Threads" features traditional quilts, mug rugs, and pictorial quilts. All quilts displayed on this website were hand-made by Estelle S. Pete.

The purpose of this website is merely for sharing and to, hopefully inspire other Native American quilters to create their own unique quilts. Estelle’s quilts are not for sale. However, Estelle is glad to share any ideas or basic tips about quilting. She considers herself an “intermediate” quilter, but has learned a lot from her quilting mistakes.

Almost all of the quilts she had made, she presents to family and friends on special occasions.

"There just isn’t enough time in the day to make all the quilts I envision. Lots of fabric, lots of ideas, but not enough time." -- Estelle
