  Quilt.jpg - Quilt made by LIZ PIATT depicting animals that reside in  Claremont Canyon.  Photo by Henry Kaiser on Apr 2, 2005.  Kaiser says "Liz Piatt made this quilt for me as a commission. It displays many of the animals that live in Claremont Canyon, according to the East Bay Regional Park list. She is an amazing quilter and embroiderer, who lives in Orinda. I was introduced to her work when I saw a similar quilt of animals that live in Yosemite on display at a bank in Orinda. I contacted her and had her make me a quilt of the flora and fauna of the underwater habitats of Point Lobos State Park.  When I moved to to Stonewall Road, I commissioned this quilt to reflect the environment around my home. You will see my late cat and dog, Biscuit and Flipper in the quilt. Biscuit was carried off by a coyote and Flipper died of bone cancer. The quilt was on display at an Oakland Quilt show a few years ago." Three of Piatt’s quilts permanently hang in the Walnut Creek library.
