My mother is a big fan of the American West and my childhood family vacations inspired the colors used in this quilt. It reminds me of driving through the Badlands at sunset. At least that's what I was going for when I was fabric shopping.
I used some Robert Kaufman cotton sateen for the back which makes for a heavier quilt all around. I also quilted it using variegated thread which I actually loved (I was a bit hesitant). I used "straight" line quilting in a wonky fashion 'cause that's how I roll.
