Canada's Big Quilt Bee

You heard it here, Canada is launching a BIG QUILT BEE in celebration of Canada's 150th!

We think Canadian quilters are up for the challenge in reaching a goal of  quilting 1,000 quilts for kids in care at Ronald McDonald Houses across our nation!

What can you do?  Make a block, make a top, come out to our conference and help quilt during the BIG BEE June 14-17th. Cheryl Arkison has kindly let us use her 'slab block pattern'. Thanks Cheryl!

Jill Buckley designed our awesome logo for us, thanks Jill!

Here you will find out all the pertinent information that includes how to make the block and top, and what to do when you have made them.

Some of the fabric lines aren't coming out until November, but others are out now. Below are the links and some images of some of the fabrics to be used in the slab blocks.

If we have missed a Canada 150 fabric line, pls let us know at
