July 1st 2017 we will be celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday!
To commemorate this great event Canadian designer Shania Sunga, known for her appliqué art quilts featuring the landscape and wildlife of Canada has designed a Mystery Quilt which will be revealed in time for the big celebration. You can register for the Canadian Mystery Quilt program here.
There are 13 blocks in all depticting Canada’s ten provinces and three territories. The blocks are constructed using a fusible, raw edge appliqué technique using beautiful Cantik Batik fabrics. A new block will be released every six weeks and the program ends with a finishing kit.
Are you a snowbird? Do you have friends or family living south of the border. Great news for our American neighbours, there is a program available for them too.
The First block represents the Gulf Coast with the surf & wave loving Brown Pelican on a sandy portion of the 1,200 mile long Gulf Coast shoreline. The Brown Pelican is one of the best known and most prominent birds found in the coastal areas of the southern and western United States.
