Creation of this quilt awakened fond and happy memories of an important event in my family's life. In 1968 we immigrated to Canada and chose Vancouver as our destination--from a poster on the wall of the Canadian Embassy! Vancouver was the most beautiful city with the bay in the foreground and magestic backdrop of the mountains.The quilt is a composite of Vancouver skylines with a sculpture of the crab fountain in front of the Planetarium. The people from a 1976 photo are my daughter Regina, my dad, and I.
