The Canadian Challenge Quilt (still working on the giveaway)




An internet quilt  Yahoo group that I belong to is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. This past summer there was a swap of provincial and territory blocks. The challenge is to create an Attic windows quilt using these blocks, adding a maple leaf and one other block.




















Sasketchewan - Prairie Lily






















Quebec - Joie de vivre (my block)




















Prince Edward Island





















Ontario



Manitoba




















North West Territories





















Alberta























Nunavut




















Newfoundland and  Labrador





















Nova Scotia





















British Columbia




















Yukon




















New Brunswick

Cute dogs who would not get off the quilt so I can take a good picture.

Since this quilt is 87 " long by 54" wide I am going to add  a border to each side, perhaps 6" or 8" each, we'll see what looks right once I find something.

I am still watching for that special day when I can pick a name for a giveaway of a quilted wall hanging. I figure this will be sometime over the next few weeks. The more visitors, the merrier!
