Maple Leaf quilt almost finished

I’ve been working away quietly at the Maple Leaf quilt, trying to get the quilting finished.  Since my Bernina has come back all nicely serviced, it has certainly been busy again.  The serviceman Barry showed me a couple of pointers on free motion quilting that I must have known at one stage, but had completely forgotten.  With my new found, or should I say, remembered knowledge, the quilting went very well.  My maple leaf blocks now have “leaf” quilting in them, all done freehand.  Not too bad, if I do say so myself, and I’m rather pleased with my creativity.

This quilt is another one that has been languishing half forgotten for much too long.  But the next step is the binding, so I’m getting there!
