This quilt celebrates the colors of the Southwest and the shapes and designs of Native American pottery and textiles.
Shades of ochre, copper and russet define canyon walls, plateaus, and minerals. Shadows of charcoal gray emphasize the depths of the canyons and give distinction to native flora which is seen in relief against the brilliance of the setting sun. Turquoise skies and ecru clouds reflect in streams and lakes and find substance in the gems which hide in the earth. It was shown at the "Shades of the Southwest" exhibit at the 2015 AQS Show in Albuquerque, NM.
