Hi Grayce! Welcome from lower mainland BC! Looking forward to seeing your block, sounds really neat.

Asking a quilter to mend something is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

Grayce I received your block today.  It is stunning and will fit in beautifully.  We need a couple more blocks ladies before I can add another row.  Grayce, I live just outside of Brantford and everyone gets mixed up as to whether it is Bradford or Brantford.  Anyway, here is a photo of Grayce's block although it is much nicer in person, my photographic skills are not that great.

I found another block I want to do for the centre if it is okay with you guys.  It is a Mounty.  The pattern is from Phyllis Johnson in Fort Frances Ontario that I got when I went for a fmq lesson.  It is so cute and I will cut it down to 20x10 well a little longer to allow for the sashing and put the blocks around it.  What do you guys think?

Monty is awesome! The Mountie is definitely a symbol of Canada - talk about being perfect for the quilt.

Grayce - I love your corn on the cob!

Hopefully everyone is having a good summer so far. Take care all!

Very cute Kim!

i like the mountie block, he's pretty cute too!

I feel like it's been forever since I've been on board, we were away for 3 weeks and since back I just can't seem to get caught up with anything, finally got some quilting done tonight, I haven't sewn for over a month! I was really going through withdrawal :)
