Quilts, more then a Blanket
This awesome looking quilt tells quite a story of the history of Breckenridge in Summit Co, Colorado. Though now days the first thing someone probably thinks of is skiing, there is much to it's history. The quilt shows panning for gold, historic buildings, and churches, the stage coach period, the importance of the railroad, farming, ranching, it's forest and mountainous terrain, and dredge mining.
I have skiied there when I was much younger, I've camped and hiked there when I was younger, but more recently I enjoy the art and history and beauty of the area.
