The Canadian Quilter Association sponsored a 52 week challenge where each week they introduced a new pattern for a 6.5 inch block for quilters to challenge themselves and have a new quilt at the end of the challenge.
I decided to make a large queen-sized quilt, so each week i made 4 blocks, plus added some extras to fill it in. A big weekly commitment that I managed to either keep up to, or catch up to year round.
I LOVE funky, and I love the graphic look of black, white, grey and red in a design. Here is my quilt from the challenge!
I wanted to make something special for someone special going through “stuff”. Their favourite colours i was told were orange and red. The only designer who could pull this off i thought was kaffe fasset and a simple design. Here’s what happened …
Mary and Erik were married here in our yard on October 19, 2019. It was a BEAUTIFUL day, and a fun event :).
Mary loves elephants, and they both are nature fans, so I made them an elephant quilt using the Violet Craft paper pieced pattern. They were very pleased with their gift.

I have traditional coloured Union Jack pillows as well as one in gray and black that I keep on my twin brother Gary’s bench. I wanted to make a paper pieced Union Jack quilt to go with them but could not decide in which colour way to create it. Instead of creating two quilts, I created in both colours!!
I’ve started quilting again – here’s one of two identical Canada 150 (Sesquicentennial) quilts I’ve made from Northcott fabrics. It’s given me confidence to continue and learn.
Here are a couple of recent layouts I have not posted:

Priceless … that’s what the expression on my granddaughter Brynn Zwanenburg’s face is, and that is one of the criteria for the 123 Challenge Blog this month. Here is the whole challenge:

Off the Rails Scrapbooking is having a fun challenge – to do a monochromatic work. I chose the colour red as I’ve been wanting to scrapbook these awesome photos of my daughter Jacqueline Pennington and her son Robert Campbell with our now Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when he was campaigning in the last election. Here is my take on it using Liberal Party red 🙂 :
