Canada 150 Quilt Show Challenge

This was the year for our bi-annual quilt show and I forgot to post my entry in the challenge.  With just a few days to go until Canada's 150th birthday I thought I should get things together.

I chose an Inukshuk as the center of my quilt and put Northern Lights and Maple Leaves around it.

We were given 3 fabrics and could only add three more fabrics and then we were to make a quilt that was no bigger than 36 inches square.

I added the red in the writing, the white with snow balls on it for our northern winters and the green for the Northern Lights. 

I fussy cut the maple leaves so that the middle was a complete maple leaf fitting inside the red one.

The binding is the same fabric as the maple leaves.
