Ammonite quilt This quilt was made in secret as a surprise 30th wedding anniversary present for my parents. The fabric for the central panels holds many memories from their lives together since they were married, and the fabrics for the side panels are contributions from friends and family, who each submitted a greeting or story to go in an accompanying book. The ammonite design was partly inspired by Matisse's Snail, and reflects my parents' interests in rocks and minerals and the arts. Its creation was a team effort over many months by my aunt, myself, and other members of our family, and remained a total secret until it was unveiled in December last year.
