We have a second home in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. We bought our first place there in 2007 and enjoyed it thoroughly over the years. It was small – half of a duplex – and there was no fence around the yard. This made the yard look quite nice, but was pretty inconvenient for our pack of pups. In mid-late 2019 we bought a new place that is a stand-alone house and has a great fence for the pups.
I saw a quilted Colorado Flag on Instagram awhile ago, and the new place has a great spot in the hallway for one to hang. I measured the space and designed a flag to fit.
This is the finished product, hanging on our deck:
The lighting in this photo is good and you can see the quilting quite nicely. I did an echoed meander in the white, which I love because it looks like a topographic map. I did mountains in the top section and a river in the bottom section.
Here is some detail of the quilting – the top:
The river in the bottom:
the big C, which was a wedge in red with an appliquéd center yellow circle:

and looking out our backyard (hanging on the all-important fence!)
We just love Pagosa and get up there as often as we can. It is bright and cool there, and we love the town.
