Rainbow over Ridgway

Photo by Bill Tiedje

A rainbow formed an arc over the town of Ridgway on Thursday evening, June 13 during a light rain shower. Perhaps a good omen, minutes earlier a meeting of local water users adjourned after resolving to name themselves the Ouray County Water Users Association.

Ouray County Historical Society unveils new raffle quilt

Arranged in a meticulous pattern of colors and prints, the 2013 Ouray County Historical Society quilt doubles as a work of art.
The quilt was sewn in a Cathedral Window design, with 542 colored squares strategically placed in a pattern that mimics the colors of the rainbow. Their white cotton frames are intricately folded, creating a near three-dimensional effect that is reminiscent of Japanese origami.
“Cathedral Window is a traditional patchwork technique interpreted in folded squares and a rainbow arrangement of patterned fabric squares hand sewn in ‘window,’” said Sue Hillhouse, one of the master quilters behind the project.
