    I am sending this off on Wednesday for my Dad for Christmas. I call it "Canadiana" because it has maple leaves, log cabins and flying geese (in 3D, in the border). It is somewhat based on Eleanor Burn's Orion Star, but I decided to change it up to the maple leaf in a log cabin. The backing is pieced with some scraps and I included puzzle fabric and crossword fabric, something Dad does in his spare time. The small maple leaf block serves as a label for the quilt. Thanks for looking.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS
