The first was created by Linda Beach in 2005 as part of Denali's artist in residence program. Through this program different artists stay in the park for a few weeks and create a piece of artwork inspired by their stay. It was pretty cool to see one of these be a quilt, and a gorgeous one at that!
The second quilt, even more impressive, is the centerpiece of the Eielson Visitors Center in the middle of the park.

Anyways, I've been staring at these a lot to figure out how I'm supposed to quilt things like streams and mountains. Now time to stop procrastinating and get back to stitching!
