The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is a small museum in downtown Golden, Colorado which housed around 15 – 20 quilts when we visited there a few days ago. All the quilts were from the 1800s and were from a collection of ONE person. So, let’s take a peek at what I got to see.
The entrance looks quaint, doesn’t it?
Just a few of the quilts along with a close up of the quilting…
This one was my daughter’s favorite of the bunch.
This one looks like it should be Native American. I think the stripes in the strips/logs is what makes it look like a Native American quilt to me.
The strips/logs were about 1/4″ to 1/2″ inch wide. Lots of work there!
Do you know what this design is called?
All quilting was hand stitched.
