Oh well, maybe I can at least inspire.... I have another that was also done awhile back and it hangs in our local library. They are very kind in offering me a space to showcase my work. Here are some pics...
This is one of the wanta-gotta-do projects that I spotted during a Shop Hop last summer.
Patterns purchased in one ... and fabrics found in a different Hop.
Please meet Monty the Mountie ... in his before state!
And Maple Leaf Rags!
One or the other, perhaps both will be completed before this year's Canada Day, July 1st!
Does a Queen's Diamond Jubilee quilt count? I'm just finishing drawing the pattern, all the material is washed and ironed, and I hope to start sewing next week. There is no way it will be finished by the beginning of July, but the Jubilee lasts all year so I'm going to relax a bit..
Peggy - your double flag quilt is fantastic.
Muv - Queen's Diamond Jubilee sounds fantastic to me, especially since she is Canada's Queen as well. Yes, it is definitely a celebration of country. I'm looking forward to seeing the pattern and progress.
QuiltE - Monty is adorable. Please do him first. I really like your Canada fabric. We may have to do some swapping at the end of this.
Absolutely, Muv!!!!! ... and please do show us the beginnings. Perhaps your drawing? and fabric assortment? I'm really interested as to what you have planned and will look forward to seeing WIP pics, too. Me? a mini-Royalist ... I've always been intrigued by all things Royal, and have been picking up a few things lately, to honour her Diamond Jubilee ... a china mug, small plate, and a 1953 calendar with her Coronation photo.
Works4Me ... Of course when I saw him, he just had to follow me home. Sharing, yes, once we both know what we have as surplus! :)
Count me in. I'm planning on doing a patriotic quilt to hang from my deck for Memorial day and July 4th.

....... although with a siggy like that, me-thinks that you should be doing something patriotically-green!!!!!!!!! :D
I have a UFO that I started some time ago in solid primary colors. It is a very long table runner for my dining room table. I put it aside because it seemed too blah and I couldn't think how to perk it up. Perhaps this challenge is just the thing to bring it back to life. Wish me luck with creativity, I'll need it!
Here's to creativity and a UFO heading towards the Finish Line!!! :)
