Celebrating the Southwest

Have you ever visited Mesa Verde, Colorado, home of the ancestral Pueblo people? Mesa Verde, which means "green table" in Spanish, is now a National Park in southwestern Colorado and was the home of the Pueblos from A.D. 600 to 1300. The National Park includes nearly 5,000 archaeological sites and 600 cliff dwellings.
(Find more about Mesa Verde here and the National Park here.)

If climbing ladders into cliff dwellings isn't on your summer agenda, we have an alternate suggestion for achieving that Mesa Verde feel:

The pattern uses our Southwest-inspired new collection of the same name. Prints of beautiful woven tapestries intermix with pottery and cool coordinating tonals.
See the entire collection here and ask for it at your local quilt shop.
