A Quilter's Journey: My Road to Denver

Exhibit

Members of the Rocky Mountain Wa Shonaji Quilt Guild will depict their individual journeys to Colorado. These quilts, original in design, are 18" x 24" and will be displayed both vertically and horizontally, with no borders or bindings, so that when hung together the roads and byways the members traveled will connect them to Denver. Though predominantly of African-American ancestry, the RMWSQG celebrates ethnic diversity in membership, as well as in the many different patterns displayed in their quilts. For information about the guild visit their website http://www.washonaji.org/
