    Red face Canada 150 logo as quilt

    Next year, 2017, will be Canada's 150. The logo developed be the federal government lends itself quite well for a colourful quilt block. Someone has already created a paper pieced version, free to download for personal use. One of the guilds is doing a challenge. Yesterday, I picked up a package of the colours to be used for it. They are done in Kona solids. I am most excited about doing a special quilt, as I have the quilt that my grandmother made for Canada's Centennial. Although she finished the blocks, she died that year so it was not assembled. My mom, who does not quilt or sew brought it to a lady to put together. She obviously was colour challenged, but I guess I have the beautiful quilt to remember. I hope to make a 150 quilt and pass on to my grandkids.

    Of course, I just haven't had enough coffee this morning. I will amend. I'm not a morning person since I retired.

    Suzanne, I have never been a morning person. I totally understand.

    I am in the processing of making two quilts for our close friends in Canada. We have property on Lake of Bays and they are our neighbors there. I would love to include the logo block. Can you post the link for the free download paper pattern?

    Thank you.
    Ann
