    Idea for Blocks

    Hi Everyone,,

    It's raining today in Gimli, MB so a good day to think about quilting.

    I have an idea for our Canadian Blocks....what if each of us do blocks that represent where we live?

    In the town where I live is a fishing town with a Viking history....also a strong Icelandic heritage.

    Let me know your thoughts??

    Have an awesome Sunday.

    I llove your idea...not sure quite how I would depict "the Thousand Islands" area, but I'm sure I could come up with something.

        I've been thinking and thinking about this. I come from the home of Wayne Gretsky and also where the first phone call was made. So I guess a hockey stick or a telephone would do. I've tried to find some telephone squares but have been unsuccessful. Does anyone know where I might find something along that line. Maybe paper pieces.....

              Monique I'm just not sure where I'd find a pattern for a phone. Any ideas?
