This quilt was a teaching sample made by Kathleen Bissett (www.kathleenbissett.com). Kathy is a very precise piecer and her tops are superbly square.
To mirror the maple leaves in the border, I quilted it with a design called Sugar Maple by Apricot Moon designs. The thread is a tan coloured So Fine that picks up the colour of the inner border. After the photos were taken, I applied binding to the front of the quilt, which Kathy will hand stitch to the back.
