(NASHVILLE) - Next year, Indiana Governor's Arts Award recipients won't be handed a sculpture or a painting. For the first time, they'll be getting an art quilt made by Daren Pitts Redman, a textile artist from Nashville.

The quilt will be given in 2016 to mark the state's bicentennial.

Redman plans to make a quilted piece that can hang on a wall, featuring hand-dyed cotton and wood from the Indiana Constitutional Elm tree. She says, the design will be inspired by Indiana Amish quilters and use the seasonal colors of Indiana's famous autumn leaves.

The Indiana Governor's Arts Awards are given every other year to recognize "significant contributions to Indiana's livelihood and heritage.
