Borders - Market

Quilt Market in Houston was very exciting this year. We got to to see upcoming patterns and fabrics,
a World Series baseball game ( ok actually only from the tv but the game was only 3 blocks from the convention center),
the annual little kids hallowe'en party in the park across the street and 
the next day, new this year, an eastern Indian event complete with camel rides.

We are at the end of the program. This is sad but oh so exciting because all your patience and hard work is coming to fruition. We finally get to see all the awesome quilts that you have completed.
Two of my extra blocks, well actually all of my extra blocks are extremely simple, one maple leaf fabric in four and the other two are reminders as to why I created this quilt. Canada is 150 and my favourite parts of the national anthem.

My quilt has the multi horizontal borders. 
On the back is the Alberta panel from Northcott, a Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman (love that fact that he's saluting) and the Canadian flag, and lastly a huge area to write, with a pigma pen, my label.

Today the link is for the remaining one to three borders. For the first red border you have a choice to make it with one red fabric or make a piano key/perpendicular border or a multi horizontal border (shown above). The last two borders are one fabric, background and red.

One Fabric
Perpendicular/Piano Key
Multi Horizontal

This has been an exciting journey for me and I hope for you as well. Remember to post your quilt on the 150 CW Quilt Along group page or send us a finished quilt top or quilt pic and we will post in the gallery on the website.

We hope that you continue to follow us to our new adventure coming soon to our website.
