Legacy Quilt

Click any image for detailed view.

There is a musical, The Quilters, that features various quilt blocks that tell the story. Our little theater in La Veta, Colorado produced their version of the musical and I had the privilege of designing the quilt. Blocks from the quilt are used at various times throughout the production, and then the full quilt is revealed at the very end. That means that each block has to be made twice - one for the scenes, and the others put into the full quilt for display at the end. I was very thankful that members of the Colorado Quilt Council assisted by making blocks for this quilt. I assembled it, and Cyndi McChesney quilted it. The quilt was raffled and the proceeds benefited the performing arts in our little town.


Choose your own difficulty. Click the 9-patch grid to change number of pieces. Click the circle arrow to make the puzzle pieces rotating instead of stable orientation. Also, there are tips under the "?" on the upper right of the puzzle. If you'd like a full screen version, click the button below. Have fun!

Lovely quilt. I've twice helped make blocks for this play - once in PA and once in NM. In PA we also raffled the unassembled blocks for extra funds for the community theater. The play touches me deeply, and I'm always glad to see it re-produced, and with a new version of the quilt each time. Thanks for sharing, Ricky.
