This quilt is 18" X 24" and I used rusted, melted glass and melted plastic I found on our property in Crandall Wyoming. These are remnants of how a "let it burn" policy in Yellowstone National Park 1988 destroyed private property. This is what is left of some of the homes that were once on our property when the fire went beyond Yellowstone. I remember Cody was like a war zone, National Guard were in Cody to fight the fire, the sky was a dark grey and we had ashes floating in the air. It was so dark during the day the street lights automatically came on. It was not only un healthy but very sad to see so much beautiful Wyoming destroyed. The mountain behind where these objects were found is still barren of trees.
