Timna Tarr created her quilt, Mississippi Meander, based on a map showing the ancient meanders of the Mississippi River. Each color represents a different time period in the river's life. She put the key to the map in the quilt's binding. 
This small abstract quilt was exhibited at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.

Yes, indeed, this is the Mississippi River I live two blocks from. It doesn't meander quite as much as the Mississippi on the quilt, but this year's floods did! Beautiful work and a delightful puzzle to work. Thank you.
