This quilt is inspired by my winter spent in the plains of Western Kansas, near the Smoky Hill River.  The gold tones evoke the colors of the dormant wheat fields and native grasses of the area, and the indigo symbolizes the water of the river.   I originally designed the quilt with the "water" running horizontally, since the river runs east - west in the part of Kansas where I spent the winter, however, you can see that it looks lovely running vertically, too. The quilt is made from linen dyed with pomegranate skins, snakeweed and indigo, and filled with U.S. grown cotton batting.  It measures approximately 63" x 63", so it would make a nice topper for a queen size bed, or a generous throw for the sofa.   Machine-pieced and hand-quilted.
