Default Colorado State Flag Quilt

Thought I'd share a finished quilt with you. This is for my step daughter, by her request. I took a few liberties with the colors. I'm not a scrappy person and this was very difficult for me! I would make the next one appliqued IF I were to do another Colorado State Flag Quilt. I found the dimensions & percentages on line and followed those for sizes/placement. The front border and backing is some great fabrics that I found online in a shop in Colorado Springs. The quilting design is called 'Breath of the Gods'. Appropriate enough!
Thanks for looking

Interesting. Would not have recognized the state flag of Colorado. I know the one for CA. Nice job.

Great Quilt. My son is a Graduate of Colorado St, Ft Collins. He got a great education there.
