“Just as patchwork quilts are the work of many hands, so too was the design of the Canada Day 1996 commemorative stamp. Celebrated designer Raymond Bellemare began with a computer-generated image of a maple leaf. He passed it on to Claire Brisson, a Montreal artisan. She crafted a full-size quilt to illustrate Canada’s size and diversity. The quilt was then photographed by Yves Binette and, from that photo, the 1996 Canada Day stamp emerged.” – Canada Post Corporation. Canada’s Stamps Details, Vol. 5, No. 3, 1996, p. 25-26.
