My RJR Challenge Quilt… “Crayon Canyon”

Here is my entry for the RJR Utah Landscape Challenge Quilt…  They provided 1/2 yard cuts of each of the 7 colored fabrics pictured. We were allowed to use 4 additional fabrics, but I challenged myself to use just what they provided.  I joke that it looks like the kids left a package of crayons in the car and it melted to make a landscape!  This quilt was patterned from a picture that I took of “Double O Arch” in Arches National Park…  I just love our redrock country here in Utah!!!

IMG_3203Yes, it is bright!  It will be like sunshine in the winter…

IMG_3204And here’s the back…  Each color in the quilt was quilted using it’s matching colors of thread!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I don’t know if I like the front or the back better! — You did an amazing job on both!

    Just lovely Ruthie, one of my happy places on earth is visiting the canyons and national parks in Utah, my favourite is Bryce, then Arches.

    Wonderful, Ruth! I love Arches, double arch is one of my favourites. The quilting is stunning. How are you ever going to show both sides together because I can’t pick which one l like better?!!
