Brenda Davidson Payer
Brenda is currently enrolled in the Canadian Quilters' Association (CQA) Quilt Judges Certification Program and offers this tip when entering a quilt challenge or competition: "read the rules, do your best work, and when receiving a critique, use that feedback to grow as a quilter".
Brenda is based out of Arnprior, ON in the Ottawa Valley. She is a quild member at the Ottawa Valley Quilter's Guild and the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild.
This quilt is a modern quilt design which includes traditional poppy, maple leaf, and tulip blocks. The tulip blocks celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands during WWII.
This quilt is considered modern because it has solid colours, an alternate grid design, and is minimalist.
It is 64" x 72" which exceeds the dimensions required for a Quilt of Valour™. Its size can be further increased if desired by simply adding a white border or a few borders in solid colours.
The design is inspired by the Quilt of Valour™ Brenda had entered in the 2017 Northcott Susquicentennial Quilt of Valour™ challenge, where she placed second.
