New acquisition to my collection

Every year there are several hand appliqued wall hangings that come from Gloria Kugler of Colorado Springs, CO.  They are often for sale in the Small Quilt Auction.  
This is one of Gloria's pieces, but it was made for the 2015 Challenge so it doesn't look like her usual traditional work, it is hand appliqued and hand quilted, extensively.  It's been hanging at the Minneapolis Hennepin County Library in the Cargill Room and now it's mine.
