We’re thrilled to offer an exciting collaboration between Local Color, a Buffalo-based quilt studio, and local artist Dana Saylor. The Buffalo Landmark and West Side quilts are available now in limited quantities. Each quilt features watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations of iconic Buffalo scenes.

The Buffalo Landmark quilt includes illustrations of City Hall, Electric Tower, Buffalo River grain elevators, Kleinhans Music Hall, the Japanese Gardens at the Buffalo History Museum, Lake Erie Lighthouse, Botanical Gardens, Darwin D. Martin house, the Frank Lloyd Wright boathouse, and more.

The West Side quilt features illustrations of private residences from around Allentown and the West Side that capture the unique architectural features of these neighborhoods. Also featured are several neighborhood institutions including Kleinhans Music Hall, Caffe Aroma, Nietzche’s bar, the Essex St. Pub, and the Frank Lloyd Wright boathouse.
