Canadian Summer QAL Week 10 Seasons Block

Welcome to week 10 of the Canadian Summer Quilt Along! This week we have the Seasons Block by Mary-Kay Colman of the blog Quilting Junkie.

Foundation Paper Pieced Maple Leaf Block
Seasons Quilt Block designed by Mary-Kay Colman and family. Pieced by Anita of Daydreams of Quilts.

I was really excited when I saw this block because, of course, the Maple Leaf fits in perfectly with the Canadian Theme but also because I had never seen it done exactly this way before. This was something new!

I was also very proud of my achievement in piecing this block because Foundation Paper Piecing has been my arch nemesis in quilting until now.

Tips: I used fabric colours just as Mary-Kay had them in the pattern graphic because I get easily confused when Foundation Paper piecing. I also coloured the pattern sections with scribbles in pencil crayon in the colours that they would be sewn to to further clarify things for myself.

Please head over to Mary-Kay’s blog to read her post about her block and download her pattern. Have fun sewing this week!

Visit the main Canadian Summer Quilt Along page for the schedule, links to already released blocks and the list of prizes in the grand prize package that one lucky winner will win! Only a few weeks to the draw date!

Giveaway: Post your Seasons block in the hashtag #canadiansummerqal on Instagram before next week’s block comes out for a chance to win a copy of my newest PDF pattern “Hidden Zig Zag”.

Happy Quilting!
