This quilt may seem straight forward in its design, but quilter M-R Charbonneau
packs a lot of meaning into this wonderful maple leaf quilt through color and stitching.
I made We the North Since 1867 to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary next year. Yeah, I know I'm a little early to be doing a sesquicentennial quilt, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I love to travel and experience other countries and cultures, but I love coming home too. I feel pretty lucky to be born in this cool country so I wanted to make something to celebrate it.
Don't let the simple design fool you; it has a lot of meaning behind it (at least for me). It has 13 values of red (mostly Konas) for the 10 provinces and three territories.
