When recently visiting Aztec National Monument in northern New Mexico, I was mesmerized by the large rebuilt kiva - once the center of spiritual activity. As I gazed at the beautiful pattern in the ceiling, I wondered what happened to the ancient ones. They had a thriving culture, but by the late 1200s they were gone. Exploring their vacated home, I was inspired to design a quilt that incorporated the intricate patterns in their kivas as a way to explore this shifting of time - to echo the seasons of the ancient ones.
