Canadian Mystery Quilt
Do you remember the Canadian Mystery Quilt? It was designed by Shania Sunga and started in 2015 with the goal to have it finished in 2017 for Canada’s 150th birthday. I signed up for the program, and my finished quilt can be found here. It is still hanging in my hallway, and I love looking at it every day, it is such a wonderful quilt, celebrating Canada’s diversity. Lynnette was inspired by the quilt as well and bought the kits back then without being a quilter. She had always wanted to make a quilt, and her mother-in-law is an excellent quilter, so she had someone available to ask for advice but I still think it is a huge feat to even attempt this quilt as a beginner, let alone finish it. The pandemic gave her the time to work on the blocks, and she did a great job putting it all together. For quilting, we chose the pantograph “Maple Sugar”, an allover maple leaf design.

Lovely – a real treasurer.
That is an amazing quilt! Would love to see it up close and see all the details.
I posted pictures of the individual blocks on my personal blog that I was still writing back then. They can be found here.
