Canadian Quilter Spring 2022

Summer 2022

So much to do this summer! Make an adorable whale block designed by John MacPhail from Art East Quilting Co. Quilt a chambray pillow, Melissa Marginet-style. Travel your own region hunting for barn quilt blocks in all kinds of places, not just on barns! Read about the hundreds of thousands of quilts that were sent from Canada to families in Great Britain during WWII, and one that made recently made it home again. So many stories, quilts, and quilting tips from makers and designers across Canada.
