The inspiration was red, white, and blue for the second challenge of Project Quilting, but the additional comments about flags got me thinking about representations of that most iconic song (barely ahead of the Hockey Night in Canada theme)–O Canada.
So I made maple leaf blocks from my scrap bins, and then sandwiched the panel to quilt the lines of a music staff (in navy blue thread). The musical notes and clef are appliqued in place, and play the introduction to O Canada. The pink musical note fabric fits the theme since pink is a tint of red. Some simple top stitching was all the finish this project needed, then I created a back and handles from this canvas (from the thrift shop).
Because while mini quilts are nice, an I’m-way-ahead-of-the-game end of year tote bag gift for the music teacher is better.
I had never competed before, not thinking I could do it, but thank you Kim for the challenge!
