Happy Easter

In celebration of Easter we bring you our photo of this beautiful silk and cotton quilt adorned with crosses in the warm colors of the Southwest. The Cross, the all-pervading icon of Christianity, is an integral element of Easter. It is the symbol of life over death.

Santa Fe Memories by Marilyn Alice Fashbaugh, quilted by Holly Casey

"Santa Fe Memories" brings to mind the religious iconography of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Marilyn Alice Fashbaugh designed the quilt in the folk art style using cottons and silks. Here are some photos of the beautiful quilting by Holly Casey.  In the photo below you can see a cross that was quilted into the background.

  1. Beautiful. He Is Risen Indeed!

  2. The colors are so nicely combined and the quilting really sets off those crosses. I can't imagine combining cotton and silk but it is very effective.

  3. A beautiful quilt. I like how she quilted in crosses, too. It would be great to see a collection of religious art quilts. Thank you!

  4. What a beautiful quilt! Happy Easter to you. It would be neat to see a collection of religious art quilts....
