Quilts, more then a Blanket

(Q post)
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.
It is a town to enjoy every outdoor activity you can think of; but don't let that fool's filled with art museum and galleries and shows a real appreciation of the softer side of things.
These are just a few of many art pieces about the town

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.

  1. Love quilts and the stories that go with them.

    1. As do I StillMagnolia, thanks for the visit.

  2. I love quilts and it's amazing how much this quilt tells about the town. I'm a history buff so I love this sort of thing.

    Stopping by from the A-Z and I'm so glad to discover your blog! :)

  3. I'm not a quilter, but I enjoy the stories that they carry on.

    Thank you.

  4. Another place for the list, thanks. Love that quilt, read a few quilting blogs recently and now I fancy giving it a go.
