Patriotic patchwork

This Saturday I whipped up this patriotic wall-hanging. Go, Canada! I picked up the kit a couple months ago and figured I should get it made for Canada Day, or really what incentive was there to get it done anytime soon?

It went together quickly and I had some fun with the quilting, starting with outlining the maple leaf shape, then adding random triangles and angular shapes.

As a bonus, I discovered while getting this photo that there is a wee bird's nest in the tree. Thankfully there was no angry momma bird to interrupt the photo shoot.
