Hello and Happy June 1st! June is my favorite summer month because my birthday is this month. 😀
The Summer edition of Quilter’s Connection Magazine is out this month too and my pillow “Toque, eh?” is inside! I realize toques are a winter garment but the theme of the issue is Canada’s 150th anniversary so that is why the toque (Canadian word for a warm woolen cap or hat) is in this issue.
I submitted this project back in December and a couple of toque blocks have come out in the meantime. Fortunately they are not the same as mine. 🙂
The instructions and templates to make the pillow are in the magazine (starting page 26). Leave me a comment here for a chance to win a copy. Maybe tell me what’s an iconic symbol or word specific to your country. “Toque” and “Eh” are quintessential Canadian words.
