The last block of the Colors of Canada BOM is done – it’s the one at the bottom, a Christmas tree. I think I need to figure out how to het the tree standing upright in this design – any ideas anyone?
The Colors of Canada BOM was done with Quilting Canadians on Quilt With Us. I started the year with a brand new package of grey and beige fat quarters, and determined to use them in the blocks. Besides that, I just picked what ever colors suited my mood on the day.
The block names, in case anybody is wondering:
Maple Leaf – Jan
North Winds – Feb Bear’s Paw – Mar
Flying Geese – Apr Shoofly – May
Bow-tie – June Lady of the Lake – July
Wandering Star – Aug Shortcut to School – Sept
Homeward Bound – Oct Dble Friendships Star – Nov
Christmas Tree – Dec
So what’s the plan? I want to design a ‘map of Canada’ to applique and put in the center, then sash and borders, and voila (I hope) a great table mat!
So proud to be CANADIAN!
Happy Canadian quilting! Blessings, Peg
