Canadian Summer QAL Final Week Snowbird Block

Welcome to the 12th and final week of the Canadian Summer Quilt Along! I have seen some amazing nearly-finished quilt tops popping up on social media! So exciting!

This week’s block is designed by Julie Johnston of Owly Patterns. This one is another foundation paper pieced block and was the one that was the most challenging for me to sew.

EDITED TO ADD: If you’re easily offended then do not click through to Owly Patterns as she has designed some patterns that some people find offensive.

Snowbird Jet Quilt Block
Anita’s version of Julie’s Snowbird block. Quilted by Dara of Stitched Quilting Co. I love how Dara put the mountains into the quilting!

Julie’s Snowbird block represents the Snowbird Jets of the Royal Canadian Air Force that we see flying over special events and at air shows around the country in impressive flying formations.

Head to Julie’s Craftsy shop to download your free block pattern for the Snowbird block.

EDITED TO ADD: Julie has donated many hours of her time to create her free block pattern but if you’re easily offended then do not click through to Owly Designs. 

This is the final block in our quilt along. To enter the grand prize contest please post a picture of your quilt top in the hashtag #canadiansummerqal by September 3rd, 2018 (Labour Day).

Your quilt top does not need to be quilted or bound (a flimsy is okay) but it does need to include at least 12 of the 16 blocks from the Canadian Summer Quilt Along. They can be set however you like and you can add other blocks/elements if you wish.

To see more information about the grand prize and find links to our prize sponsors and all the blocks in the quilt along please visit the main Canadian Summer Quilt Along page.

Thank you so much for quilting along with us! Thank you to all of our prize sponsors and block designers! I couldn’t have done this without you! I can’t wait to see everyone’s quilt tops!

Thank you to Dara Tomasson of Stitched Quilting Co. for quilting my Canadian Summer Quilt Along quilt.
