Barn Quilt, 2016
Inspired by Dawn DeAno’s initiative, “Stories to Tell: Barn Quilts of Boulder County,” DMMQG is telling its own story in a modern quilt. Dawn has selected 25 traditional quilt blocks that will soon be adorning barns throughout Boulder County. We used those same blocks to inspire our outreach project: a quilt to raise awareness of our craft in the local community. The quilt we made was presented to the Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center, a non-profit organization changing the lives of people with disabilities through equine-assisted activities, to be raffled at their annual fundraising event.
