Canada 150: Red and White
2017 is Canada's 150th Birthday and this art quilt celebrates the occasion in red and white! The red maple leaves were painted using hand-cut stencils that I made from locally gathered leaves. The background has been free motion machine quilted and hand stitched and then organza maple leaves were stitched along some of the leaf veins so that they add more movement and texture.
This piece is headed to the Salmon Arm Art Gallery for their Red and White exhibit that opened last night.
