All Around Canada – that is the name I gave our store’s #Northcott Trans-Canada Block Party block. When designing the block, I wanted the geese flying over the entire Canada map, to show the inclusiveness of our country and our pride.
Sharon H. took my concept and with her fabulous drawing and computer skills made it come to life. We tweaked, we culled, and by December we had it finished. So off it went to Northcott to be entered into their shop challenge.
How incredibly excited we are that our block made it into the top ten finalists! We couldn’t be more pumped if we were in the Miss America Pageant! There are some beautiful blocks besides our own, and we are so proud to be included with them.
I ask that everyone please take the time to vote for your favourite block by clicking here. Voting is limited to one per IP address. Travel to a new place with a different network, then you can vote again. We also have a link to the voting platform on the first slide on the Home page of our website.
Voting ends February 28 at 11:39 EST.
These blocks are designed by stores who are participating in the #Northcott Trans-Canada Block Party, and they are giving the patterns away for free to walk-in customers until September 1st. Kits are also available for purchase.
After September 1st, stores may sell the patterns and kits by mail.
In October, I blogged about all the various challenge components of the #Northcott Trans-Canada Block Party, as well as other contests that were announced at the time. Click here to read this blog post and get all the details.
And thank you for voting – the best competition is one with lots of votes!
Of course, feel free to share this with your quilting buddies, friends, and guild members. You know how quilters love to hear about new programs.
