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.

    I was able to get some of the blocks but I am missing a bunch. Curious to know if there are still some available to purchase, including the cost of shipping. I have #s 3, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13.

      Sorry, Liz, I can’t help you with that. I only sell my own patterns and only as downloads. This was a quilt I quilted for a customer.
