Default QOV for retiring officer

This is for a dear friend who will be retiring soon from the Canadian Armed Forces. He has dedicated
over 35 years of service and sacrificed much time with his family to proudly serve his country.

Quilt design was inspired by Debbie Mum’s Apples and Bars quilt. I swapped out appliquéd apples in the setting triangles for Big Stitched maple leaves in #8 Perle cotton.

Quilt is simply quilted with diagonal serpentine lines with my walking foot on my domestic sewing machine.

OhCanada .... Perfectly Oh Canadian!
The maple leaves are a perfect twist on the original pattern.
Certainly a nice tribute to one of our retiring armed forces members.

Curious here ... did you go with a Canadian print for the backing?
