    I am looking for some ideas on a southwestern flavor quilt. What colors do I need? I was thinking terra cotta, green, turquoise and maybe some yellow? What would be a good pattern? I will be making this for my daughter.

    Here are some ideas I made using Southwestern fabrics. I live in NM. These might give you some ideas of the colors here.

    Sorry about my ironing/cutting board in the picture of the tortilla warmer. That one was sold before I could take a better picture.

    Here are 3 pics of quilts I've made that have a SW flavor. Maybe they'll inspire you as far as colors and fabrics.

    What amazing work! Makes me want to run downstairs and pull out that little Kokopelli fabric and start sewing. Alas I have eight more quilted reversible aprons to make first.
