Yey - Yey - Yey!! It is finished finally the maple leaf is quilt is DONE!
Didn't it turn out well? I love it. This quilt will be donated to the town of Arnprior to celebrate our 150th Anniversary. The maple leaves symbolize our logging industry. Our local guild members made the blocks and I put them into a quilt top. A guild member long-armer machine quilted it for us and she did an amazing job.
Didn't she do a nice job??
The quilting is lovely Thank you Shirley Cavanaugh fo a wonderful job.
Next I pressed myself to get the binding, label and sleeve all finished so that I could hand it off in two days. Wowzers what a lot of work! I always forget how many hours go into the finishing touches! I got pretty nervous though because the thread that I had, that worked with the binding, was right down to the little bits to finish! I kept thinking - oh no - what if I don't have enough?? Everything is closed for the long weekend - I was fine! Yey!
The label was another thing to do - we had two extra blocks come in. You know when you organize these type of things you don't expect to get all the blocks back? Well, we did! So we had out two extra that went onto the back with the label. Nice effect huh? I like it!
Anyways, this is done and ready to be handed off on Wednesday!!
