beautiful.

A pieced quilt.

I can not imagine all the time it took to piece this quilt.

It was well worth the effort though.

The Canadian Quilters Association had this

arrangement in its booth. It is made up of different

colored circles. Hearts seem to gaining in

popularity this year.

Have a great week.

One thought on “Happy Canada Day!

    Oh, Canada!

    Have an awesome day. Loved the seeing all the Quilts at the Show. Stood in front of the pieced one for a while, made me think of my Omigosh adventure. Lots and lots of little pieces. The applique lollipop tree with the butterflies made me look twice at it. Funny how some quilts do that to us, eh?
