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.
