The Canadian Sampler

em

This is Eileen’s Canadian Sampler Quilt, it was a BOM project by Sew Sisters in 2017 to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday.  Each block was designed by a Canadian designer and Lori and I were pleased to be asked to participate in this project.  We designed block #8 which was the Snowflake block you see above.  We chose a snowflake for our block as it is a reflection of our love for winter in Canada.

I quilted it with the Bora Bora pantograph, giving it the feel of wind or clouds across the blocks.  I used white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.  The fabrics are Northcott Colourworks Premium Solids ( Cardinal and Snow).
