On my design wall – 2017.04.12

This week I made four more blocks for Canada’s biggest Quilt Bee.   These blocks are more wonky (and were more fun to make!) than the six blocks I made a couple of weeks ago.

Quilters across Canada (and in other countries, too!) are making blocks with the goal of  making 1,000 quilts for kids at Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada.  Some quilters are sending completed quilts, but many others are sending quilt tops and/or quilt blocks.

For 3 1/2 days in June 2017, at Quilt Canada in Toronto ON, the tops and blocks will be sewn into quilts by volunteer quilters.  There will be sewing machines, long arms, mid arms and an army of volunteers to sew the blocks together and create the quilts.   I’ve signed up for the Friday afternoon shift.  It’s going to be a lot of fun!

    Beautiful blocks! Canadian quilters are lucky to have such a nice country symbol that looks great in fabric patterns and blocks ;)))
