Based on one of my grandmother's handmade quilts, this collagraph print follows the colours and textures of the fabrics my grandmother used in the quilt exactly as she laid it out and sewed it together. I have slept under this quilt! It has a new home, away from the house on the ridge outside of Mabou, Cape Breton and now lives in my cousin Daniel's guest bedroom.
Perfect as a unique gift for the quilt lovers/makers in your life, be they grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, daughters, nieces, granddaughters or any of those quilt loving men out there!
