The Family Ever After Blog opened auditions for Sew-vivor Season 3: Quilter’s Edition yesterday. I thought about it overnight and have decided to audition. As my audition piece I am entering my “Oh, Canada – Quilt of Valour”. I feel this represents some of my best work. I apologize if you’ve seen this quilt a couple of times now. 🙂
This was the quilt ready for the binding to go on.
Here is a close-up of one of the blocks. I used straight line quilting on the bars on either side of the maple leaf and meandering quilting around the leaves. The leaves are appliqued on using Heat n’ Bond light and then machine stitched in a zig zag with matching thread around the edges.
I pieced and quilted this quilt myself. The pattern is “Oh, Canada” by Cheryl Arkinson. The binding is machine sewn to the front and hand sewn to the back.
I am looking forward to seeing how the competition plays out and seeing everyone’s quilted creations. Head over to the Family Ever After blog to have a read through the rules and challenges and decided if you want to throw your hat in the ring for this one. The prizes are out of this world!
