I forgot to mention that this was hand made. No machines. Just a needle and material
Jesus Holy Christ. This info just made it about 1000x more impressive. A quilt like this would still be great if made with the help of machinery, but achievable. Hand-made? OOF!!! 🥵 Grandma is an absolute savage and master at the craft, I’ve known people with decades of experience that wouldn’t even come close to this... Can we have an HD image my guy?
After your family has enjoyed this for a few years/generations you might consider donating it to a folk art museum. Its an amazing piece now, in 50 or 100 years it will have real cultural significance. Beautiful.
Edit: thanks for the gold. I remember my first year of college I went out to explore one day and ended up in the university arts center. There was a touring exhibit of quilts, many of them from Appalachia, most from the plains. Some were over a hundred years old. Beautifully displayed. All one of a kind. Hand made.
I understand the comment suggesting it stay in the family, and I agree. But like I said after a few generations of family enjoyment something like this really could and should be shared with the public.
FINALLY! A post that really is nextfuckinglevel. Holy moly my grandma made quilts, but never to this extent. This takes real dedication and focus to accomplish.
did you see that comment that it was ALL BY HAND? that’s nextnextfuckinglevel
Tell your grandma I love her quilt!
Yea and tell her that I love it more
As a Canadian born living in the US, this made me tear up. Your grandmother rocks.
Come back anytime, we miss you and will always welcome you home!
This is incredible. Please share with the r/quilting gang too
that's awesome! your grandmother is very talented
Hug your grandmother for the internet. That's amazing
Oh my god I would frame this in my living room
That would be a good idea if it wasnt stretching from roof to floor
Amazing work!! I love the detail. You’ve made Canada proud Grandma ❤️
She’s quite the artist eh! It’s lovely ☺️
She’s *quilt* the artist :)
Tell your grandma that she has a thoughtful grandchild.
Ahhh my grandmother made so many quilts. Her last one she made for my son as his baby blanket 😀
She has amazing talent, patience, and perseverance!
This is beautiful!!
grandmothers are pretty good
too bad they dont fucking last
For some reason I thought the last part of your sentence said "too bad they don't fuck".
That’s beyond my Gran’s quilting, that’s fibre art! Amazing!
This is amazing!!!
Grandma just broke the internet. Well done!
That is seriously kick ass!
So cool. She did an awesome job. I love it.
That is amazing!
That is beautiful!! My grandmother was a quilter too. I wish I had let her teach me before she was gone.
So beautiful 🤩
Dang your Gran's amazing. I hope to be a quarter as good as her one day!
What an absolute treasure! Your family members will be fighting over this (in a good way) for generations to come! Just stunning work!
I feel warmer just looking at it. I love a handmade quilt, but my wallet does not. Your gramma is awesome!
Tell her she is awesome! I love it!
Gotta love that Canadian healthcare and federally legal cannabis
It's absolutely gorgeous. Once this covid is over I'd suggest entering it in a quilt show.
Grandma’s a f*cking beast!! What a legend!
that’s remarkable! beautiful!! congrats to your grandmother for all her hard work, and to you for having such an awesome grandmother!
That’s a fuckin’ great quilt actually.

Gordon Lightfoot would be proud. Quilt has the entire Canadian Railroad Trilogy on it
Your grandmother is talented - what a gem!
Should be in a museum, it’s stunning!
Wow! That’s amazing
This is an amazing piece of art!
Any chance to get a higher resolution version?
Ill try for a higher res when i can see it again
She’s an angel! 🇨🇦
I’m getting arthritis just looking at this
Please put this on exhibit. Contact your local quilter’s guild- while grandma’s still here. This is an amazing work of art. It needs to be documented! What gem!
Your grandma is a quilting grandmaster!! Please tell her I am a huge fan of her work!!
Ah yes, the great pyramids of Canada.
I like the pyramids
Looks like she is on good meds.
Did she take potty breaks every once in a while?
In 8 years? I hope so
Love it!! PEI on there as well, looks so cool.
Canadian bros where ya at!
Woah what a lazy granny, she spent 8 years laying on this quilt 👵💤👛🍬
One day, that will grace the walls of a museum. (In the meantime, I'm sure your family will cherish it.) Super impressive work!
This is absolutely incredible
Awesome! Give your grandma a hi five and a double double from me
she lived on a quilt for 8 years? impressive.
Lovely. Needs more white.
Best country on the planet 🇨🇦🍁🥞
Absolutely amazing, I noticed most of the Provinces and Territories are represented but have a hard time identifying a few. Do you have information on which section is each part of Canada?
I think that boat fell out of the quilt river.
My husband and I had intercoirse once in our marriage in Canada at Niigata falls
Thanks for the story grandma, you truly are wise.
why does she feel guilty about canada?
Friars bad ass
Hey I can see my house in there!!!
That's a beautiful piece of art! Love it!!
What a beautiful job she's done. Intricate, detailed, just stunning. Please tell grandmother she is so very skilled!
Why did my dumbass assume she literally *spent* her 8 years on it?
Lot of hard work. Each line is a province starting west going east across the country. BritishColumbia, alberta saskatchewan, manitoba etc
Your meemaw deserves all the upvotes!
This is amazing!!! Post in r/quilting
Wow that's cool
