My sister emailed me a 4 word message:  "I am a grandmother."  It took several emails to get all the details:  girl or boy, how big, whose baby, etc etc.  They wanted  purple and white, and this is the results.

This picture pieced quilt took about 18 months over 4.5 years to make. There’s ~6000 pieces not including the individual patches of batiste sewn in with every light grey and white piece. These were there to hide the seam allowances. Pieces start from the size of a pin head and work their way up. With that amount of seams, they are not going to sit nicely even in an alternate universe. Natural trapunto??? Many days of full time work would only produce about a 4” square of quilt. The quilt doesn’t photograph well. There is also a layer of batiste either side of the batting to help stabilise the quilt.

I noticed one night that the reflection of the quilt in the window gave it a lot more depth and looks very different. There’s a photo of it in reverse on my blog fionaschiffl.com along with the more in depth story of the quilt. I also noticed an almost full sized face looking up in the rocks. 

I love Lake Louise and I feel I’m really a Canadian trapped in an Australian’s body. If you can’t go to Canada, bring Canada to Australia is my motto.

This quilt got me through some of the worst and best times of my life. Looking at this photo in detail becoming a quilt was a blessing during this time. I’m glad to say I’ve done a lot of healing! 

The quilt won runner up (2nd place) in pictorial quilts in our state show so I’m over the moon.

Quilt size 165.5cm x 105cm. It weighs 2 kilos.

This quilt was made from a dear Grandmothr’s silk scarves and a few of her embroidered handkerchiefs that she made herself.  Her Grandchildren asked me to make it for their Mother.  Truly a family keepsake that will be passed down for years.
