Canada150 Quilt Pattern

One of the ladies I follow on Instagram had a great idea the other day to turn the new Canada 150 year logo into a paper piecing pattern. You can see and read about the logo here I jumped in and gave it a shot. I think I did pretty well. I've been working on putting one together and I'm pretty happy with the results so far. This is the first pattern I've done like this so please let me know if something isn't right or doesn't make sense. I'm happy to put out an updated version. You can download the pattern for free here. Please let me know your progress and let me see your finished product by using the hashtag #Canada150quiltblock

Marsala Pantone Color of the Year Challenge

39.5 inches x 37.5 inches

And here it is just in the nick of time. Between the baby crying and the bad internet at the RV park I'm amazed I got it done and was able to load any pics at all. But alas it must be time for the old folks to go to bed because the internet has improved considerably in the last few minutes.

I'm pretty happy with the results and am excited to get the backing and quilting done. This is my first finish of 2015 and my first finish in the RV so that is a accomplishment in itself.

And a few more pics for the heck of it.
