Canadian BOM Mystery quilt

Did you know that on July 1, 2017, Canada will be celebrating its' 150th birthday?  We are a young country, but packed full of history.

To help celebrate this grand occasion, there is a Canadian BOM Mystery quilt that I have signed up for.

Here are the first two blocks.  I'm looking forward to receiving the other packages and I can only guess what each province and territory will be.
When Canada celebrated its' 125th birthday, there was a Canadian quilt pattern in a magazine which I kept it, but never made the quilt.  This is something that I should do and have a quilt to remember these grand celebrations.

This is the pattern by Vicki Lynn Bardon of Suttles and Seawinds that appeared in Canadian Living magazine, January 1992 edition.
Oh dear, another one to add to my list.

Have a great day!

I really would love to take part in the Canadian BOM but it's way too expensive. Enjoy your journey. It will be a lovely quilt.
