Ursel Arndt


". . . In Germany we have a problem . . .schools no longer teach in old handicraft techniques . . . "you can learn it from your grandmother" they say. But she no longer lives with the children in our modern society . . ."

Ursel Arndt took three years collecting all the flowers for this quilt, some of the flowers were made especially for it, some are over a hundred years old.
