A Quilt for Canada Day

This year I remembered to put up my Maple Leaf quilt in time for July 1.

Canada Day quilt

The label tells me I made this wall-hanging in 2003.  It was an entry for a challenge at one of my favourite places – Katja’s Quilt Shoppe.  We were to make a quilt representing Canada and use the fabric printed with the Canadian flag.  Curiously, this “Canadian” fabric was red, white and blue!  The quilting is words from “O Canada”.

Scrappy Mountain Majesties


I sent a quilt to a special person who is going through some difficult times.  This is a variation of the Delectable Mountains quilt pattern, made from directions on Bonnie Hunter’s Quiltville blog – look under the tab for free patterns.  You can check out her blog here.

The quilt started as a collection of coordinating fabric squares.  I teamed them up with solid white to show off the colours.  The quilting is a panto pattern called Lush Leaves.

(The quilt DOES have borders all the way around.  I’m annoyed that I sent off the quilt without first making sure I had a proper picture of it.)
