It may be obvious, but it looks like this will be my final finish for 2016.
This finish is the second of two Canada 150 quilts designed for the upcoming 150th Anniversary of Canada. The Sesquicentennial anniversary.
You can see the baby size version here in last week's post.

|The TRUE NORTH polar bear|
|The STRONG (and) FREE brown bear|
|The salmon swimming|
|The seal pups lounging|
|The common loon|
|The Canadian Goose|
|The Maple Leaf|
I chose a deep black for the lettering and numbers.....
|The great big Canadian Beaver takes center stage|
And the same for the binding.
When it came time for quilting, I went with my usual organic wavy lines. I used green thread, both on top and in the bobbin. The green blends well with both the background and the backing. And yet, did not stand out like a sore thumb against the white polar bear and seal pups.
The Canada 150 design is available in two sizes.
Directions are included for the 40" x 50" baby quilt size
AND for the 66" x 66" lap quilt size.
|Canada 150 baby 40" x 50"|

The most of the individual blocks have also been listed separately, including the Big Bear without words. You can check out all the details for this pattern in my shop here.
