WELCOME TO COLORFUL COLORADO is inspired by the geography and beauty of the state of Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. This quilt can be viewed two ways. Vertically, it’s as if you are standing in the prairie with the sun setting behind the mountains. Horizontally, it represents the geographic segments of Colorado: with the Mesas on the West, the Rocky Mountains in the middle, and the Plains on the East.
This quilt won Honorable Mention (Modern Quilt category) at the 2014 Des Moines AQS Quilt Show, and was displayed in the 2015 Quilt Con Quilt Show.
