Purely Canadian Eh! A Perfectly Canadian Quilt.

Purely Canadian Eh! A Perfectly Canadian Quilt.

When I think about Canada, I immediately think of maple syrup, plaid, hockey playing beavers, and flag waving moose. I'm sure that is what comes to mind for all of you, too! Jokes aside, this fabric screams Canadiana and I thought that it would make a perfect birthday quilt for my Albertan nephew who loves to camp.

When deciding on what pattern to use, I found that JN Harper, along with Apple Hill Quilting designed a free pattern for use with the Purely Canadian Eh fabric line. This pattern is easy and simple - a bonus for making a quilt quickly when you are on a time crunch.

The blocks are very easy to cut out and quick to assemble.

 

Once the centre section is done, all you have to do is add a couple of borders and the top is done!

 

This quilt was really quick to put together and could easily be done in one day. It did take me longer but that was because I was dealing with a new addition to our family....

 

With all of the distractions a new puppy provides, I did eventually get the quilt top done in about 5 days. I still have to sandwich and quilt it, but I do have until August. I hope my nephew likes this quilt as much as I do!

One thing to note, the pattern does not take into account that the maple syrup fabric is directional. If you are like me, and that bothers you, make sure to take that in to account when cutting the syrup fabric. If you cut as the pattern says, your syrup fabric will be sideways in parts of the quilt. I also found that I had a lot of extra fabric left over.
