Cowboy Quilt Challenge Winners Announced
Yup, you read that right--"winners" plural! The judges of the Cowboy Quilt Challenge, sponsored by ThreadBear and the Chicken River Modern Quilt Guild, selected two very different quilts to share the top prize. Challenged to create a quilt that reflected "the history, life, landscape, or culture of the Southwestern cowboy," Sharen Arelliano of Albuquerque offered a well-composed and -executed quilt using new fabrics in blues, cream, and burgundy.
Betty Dunbar of Las Vegas took a different approach, creating a delightfully homey and rustic log cabin quilt that could come right out of some cowpoke's saddlebags through the use of old shirtings and vintage prints.
