Quilting Canadians BOM 2011

All last year the Quilting Canadians on Quilt With Us, built blocks for a Colors of Canada quilt.  At the end of the year, I put them together with an appliqued map of Canada in the center, and just today, I finished the quilting.  All that’s left is the binding.

I’m really please with the way this one turned out:042

My stack of quilts waiting for binding has grown now to six, and there’s still two more waiting for quilting – I guess I know what I’m going to be doing for the next while!  It’s not that I don’t like doing the binding, just been too focused on other projects.

Happy quilting and finishing!            Blessings, Peg


  1. Yay, I bet you are thrilled to have one complete. It is a great Canadian themed quilt! Love your map - it must have been quite a bit of work to make.

  2. Hey Peg, The quilt looks great. Must have been tricky appliquing the map!!

  3. What a wonderful quilt Peg! The appliqued centre is very very creative!

  4. Great quilt glad l stopped by. Will visit your blog again soon.
