Happy Canada Day!

Happy 142th Birthday Canada! The True North Strong and Free! I absolutely love my country and would not want to live anywhere else. For some great articles about Canada, check out the yarn harlot's blog.

On a quilting note, I am usually a person who likes a lot of colour in her quilts. I have only recently learned to appreciate white. I saw this quilt in McCall's Quick Quilts magazine January 2009 and knew I wanted to make it. Yes, I have all the fabric and it will become my Canada Day quilt. I am going to choose a different fabric for the border.

To all my fellow Canadians, wherever you may be in the world, I wish you a wonderful Happy Canada Day!
