A Quilt from My Santa Fe Class in November-Isn't this Wonderful?

As many of you know I loved Sante Fe and this quilt by Mary Ann gives me a huge smile on my face-the color, the composition and the story are super and I know this is a prize winner. She likes to do small projects and this is a big quilt and was a big undertaking but hey, anything done well is worth it and this was done well. Can't wait to hear what prizes it takes and how much she loves it when she gets over the time she spent on it. :0) She is a great quilt artist! It is always fun to see what imagination can come up with!
Here is what she said in the letter to me. It made me smile.

This is your Santa Fe New Mexico friend who has finally finished, photoed and become really sick of my Sanctuario de Chimayo-It's so not me-Mary Lou Weidman Quilt. My long arm quilter was fantastic! It is only 83" X 100". I thought it would go on the spare bedroom bed until I realized it compromises the design completely. I will hang it for our neighborhood Studio Tour on the 15th and 16th of this month. I hope to find a public venue for it. You were inspiring, but for now I will stick to smaller sizes and purses.

Cool quilt Mary Lou, thanks for sharing it.

I love how she used the tan strata in a triangle to represent the a tile like effect.

Inspires me to make a New Mexico quilt for myself.

For someone who doesn't do your style or large quilts, she was very creative and beautiful applique and quilting. I love it!

A perfect example of getting "Out of the Box." This quilt is a treasure.
