The Eastern New Mexico News - Serving Clovis, Portales and the Surrounding Communities

Reporter's notebook: Quilts in bloom


March 28, 2018

A garden is blooming in Las Cruces, and one of the “gardeners” is an eastern New Mexico native.

Clovis resident Mary Mattimore’s quilt, entitled “Pitcher Plant,” will be featured alongside the work of 34 other quilters from across the state at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.

“How Does Your Garden Grow?,” an art show being held from April 6 through Aug. 5, will display quilts that feature plants both real and imagined, according to a museum press release.

Other pieces in the show have such mouth-watering titles as “Bull’s Eye Beets,” “Zebra-Striped Tomatoes” and “Easter Egg Radish.”

Real or imagined, those are not bad ideas for salad toppings.
