A couple weeks ago I started a signature quilt for a friend at work that will be leaving Canada in a few weeks to go home to Germany. I asked co-workers to sign 5.5" squares of fabric with their farewell wishes. It took a few weeks to have them returned, and here are a few.
Since the quilt is for a guy, it was made using only 49 different shades of grey, representing the suits that he wore to work. His shirts and ties (yes, these exact colours) were always colourful so a small square of green and purple was added to represent this part of him.
Here is the finished quilt.
Finally, a stylized Maple Leaf label, representing Canada, was added to the back.
The quilt will be presented during a farewell party in the next couple weeks. I hope our friend will get a kick out of reading all the comments and will be reminded of us when he is back home.
