Rio Hondo (80" x 64") is a fractured landscape masterpiece by Katie Pasquini-Masopust.  She takes a photograph, enlarges it, and then fractures the surface into vertical sections.  For movement, she adds diagonals. Rio Hondo is a river that runs between Taos and Santa Fe.  Katie says, "I am interested in portraying places I have been, into a surreal world of my own."  This quilt was lost at a show and was missing for nine months.  A salvage company found it and tracked Katie down because she had written pertinent information on her quilt label.   So remember to ALWAYS INCLUDE A QUILT LABEL.

The quilt is in the collection of John Walsh III.  It was made in 1995, mostly from cottons.  It is machine pieced, appliqued, and quilted.
