Lynn left left the quilting designs up to me, but requested no feathers and something slightly modern. I knew the maple leaf had to be the star of the show and I quilted stylized veins with curls.
I added "3's and e's " to the other red selection to keep a similar feel.
I decided to quilt wood grain in the black background section.
The white sections got a contrasting horizontal linear treatment.
I kept the border treatments fairly simple. Loops, swirl/banana combo (that needs a better name) and piano keys. I am grateful that Lynn took the time to stitch down the white flange so it didn't get in the way.
If you are semi-local and want to see this and some other beautiful quilts in person check out the Beausejour Quilt Show.
Beautiful job Lynn!
