Lake Louise Landscape Quilt
This landscape quilt was made from a photo taken
23 August 2003 from the Fairmont Chateau when we visited
Lake Louise. The quilt measures 47" wide by 45" long so it only looks
like the photo by standing back away from it. The top
was appliqued from fabrics that resembled the rocks, hills,
water, sky and snow. The quilting follows the layers in the
rocks, the trees on the hillside, and the waves in the water.
It only took 15.5 hours to "audition" the fabric for the
quilt and hand applique the pieces into place but 65 hours to
hand quilt with matching quilt thread.
A border of fabric that resembles wood with grain was attached to make it look as if this is a scene out of a window.
