Sue Piper’s Post Fire Garden Quilt—I had made a smaller quilt like this before the fire, based on art from Lois Ehler’s children’s book Planting a Rainbow.  Several months after the fire, when I felt the urge to quilt again, I decided to remake the quilt but larger.  The flowers represent the flowers that had been in our garden before the fire, and until we moved back to our new home on the old lot, it WAS our garden.  The quilt is hand appliqued, hand embroidered and hand quilted—and it is the first quilt of my collection that I pack in my Go-Bag whenever I prepare for evacuation.
